The BC SPCA is gearing up for its Paws for a Cause walk, presented by Hill’s® Science Diet®. This year, our Chilliwack and Abbotsford Branches will be teaming up to present a day full of fun at Vedder River Park in Chilliwack on Sunday, Sept. 9. The event includes a five-kilometre walk, plus activities, prizes and more!
“We’re excited to be able to offer a dog-friendly beer garden area,” says Tess Repenning, BC SPCA manager, peer-to-peer and community fundraising. “There’s also going to be a delicious selection of vegan, vegetarian and SPCA Certified foods, along with BC SPCA booths, a tent for all kinds of children’s activities, plus a number of other vendors to come and visit.”
Repenning says it’s not too late to sign up. “This event is a win-win for everyone. Not only will you be able to enjoy the day with all the people – and the animals in your community – you’ll also be doing your part in the fight against animal cruelty.” To sign up, all you have to do is visit our walk website. “Whether you’ll be fundraising on your own, with your friends and family, or as a corporate group, you’ll enjoy fundraising support leading up to the big day. “You can also learn more about how your participation and fundraising dollars will help domestic, farm and wild animals right across the province.”
