Paws for a Cause to help fight animal cruelty

Largest single event to help fight animal cruelty in British Columbia

Some animals never know kindness.

The good news is, you can fight animal cruelty in your community by registering and fundraising for the 2015 Scotiabank and BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk, held in September to raise funds for abused, injured, neglected and homeless animals throughout B.C.

This year, participants in more than 30 communities throughout the province will walk to raise funds to help animals in need across British Columbia.

The Paws for a Cause walk benefitting the Campbell River SPCA branch, will be held at Nunn’s Creek Park on Sunday, Sept. 13 beginning at 9:30 a.m. with the walk starting at 11 a.m.

Participants will be able to enjoy fantastic entertainment and activities, including a bouncy castle and face-painting for the kids, games for all ages, contests, prizes and a barbecue with delicious food.

Generously supported by local sponsors, 2DayFM 99.7, Campbell River Mirror, Great Canadian Oil Change, Mactavish Welding, Strathcona Toyota, Seymour Pacific Developments, Associated Tire and Auto, Marine Harvest, Dogwood Pet Mart, RH Printing and Design, Campbell River Pet Centre, and Shar-Kare, the event brings animal lovers and their furry friends from all walks of life together for a great time as well as a fantastic cause.

“This is the largest single event to help fight animal cruelty in British Columbia,” says Krista Constantineau, BC SPCA manager of fundraising events.

“We are overwhelmed by the participation each year – it’s so great to see thousands of people come together across the province to help B.C.’s most vulnerable animals – and the great news is, this year, registration numbers are up. Our amazing supporters not only raise essential funds, the events are so much fun for two-legged and four-legged participants.”
