KELOWNA - 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 & 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 Scotiabank & BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk to fight animal cruelty, benefitting the Kelowna SPCA Branch, will be held at City Park, Kelowna on Sunday, Sept. 13, from 9 a.m. with the walk starting at 10:30 a.m. Participants will be able to enjoy fantastic entertainment and activities, including a kid's zone, community vendors, a barbecue and more!
Generously supported by our local sponsors, Bark N Fly, Buckerfield's, Fairfield Animal Hospital, the Bone & Biscuit co., Okanagan Pet Cremation, Quality Greens Farm Market and RE/MAX, 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 community event to help fight animal cruelty here in the Central Okanagan and walks are happening right across BC,” says Suzanne Pugh, BC SPCA Kelowna branch manager. “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, right here in Kelowna this year, registration numbers are up! Our amazing supporters not only raise essential funds for the Kelowna branch, the events are so much fun for two-legged and four-legged participants.”

Thank you to our provincial sponsors: Scotiabank, CTV, Pawsitive FX, PwC, and TV Week.
