SPCA fundraiser helps animals in Victoria

Paws for a Cause walk set for Clover Point on Sept. 7

Some animals never know kindness.

The good news is, you can fight animal cruelty by registering and fundraising for the 2014 Scotiabank and BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk.

The walk is held every September to raise funds for abused, injured, neglected and homeless animals throughout B.C.

This year, participants in 31 communities throughout the province will walk to raise funds to help animals in need.

The Scotiabank & BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk to fight animal cruelty in Victoria will be held at Clover Point on Sept. 7 from 10 a.m. with the walk starting at 11:30 a.m.

Proceeds from the walk will benefit animals at the Victoria SPCA and Wild ARC (Animal Rehabilitation Centre).

Participants can enjoy a variety of entertainment and activities, including a Paws Parlour for your pooch to relax in after the walk, bouncy castle and face-painting for kids, fun games for dogs and their humans, a barbecue and top fundraiser prizes.

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

“We are overwhelmed by the amazing 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.”
