Parksville’s Paws for a Cause sets $15,000 goal

There’s still a month to go before the annual Paws for a Cause fundraiser, but SPCA manager Nadine Durante wants people to think ahead.

There’s still a month to go before the annual Paws for a Cause fundraiser for the SPCA shelter, but manager Nadine Durante wants people to think ahead.

The walk, the biggest provincial fundraiser of the year for the SPCA, is slated to run at Parksville Community Park on September 9, with registration at 10 a.m. and the walk starting an hour later.

The event will feature radio personality Dave Graham as master of ceremonies and will include popular doggie games such as bobbing for wieners and musical sits.

The key to success, Durante said, is for supporters to pick up their pledge forms now so they can get them filled out prior to the big day.

“Our goal is $15,000 this year,” she said.

Forms can be picked up at the shelter, located on Alberni Highway in Errington or by downloading them by visiting www.spca.bc.ca/walk.

“Come out and support the animals in your community,” she said.
