PENTICTON - 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 South Okanagan/Similkameen SPCA Branch) will be held at Gyro Park, Penticton on Saturday, Sept. 12. Registration is from 8 a.m. with the walk starting at 9 a.m. Participants will be able to enjoy fantastic entertainment and activities, including music, a barbecue, coffee, bake sale, competitions, community vendors and so much more!
Generously supported by our local sponsors, BDO, Nufloors, Skaha Ford and See Ya Later Ranch, plus Quality Greens Farm Market and Okanagan Pet Cremation, 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.”
Thank you to our provincial sponsors: Scotiabank, CTV, Pawsitive FX, PwC, and TV Week.
