Some animals never know kindness. The good news is, you can help fight animal cruelty by joining the 2015 Scotiabank and B.C. SPCA Paws for a Cause walk, Sept. 13 to raise funds for abused, injured, neglected and homeless animals.
This year, people in more than 30 B.C. communities will walk to raise funds to help animals in need. The local walk will (benefitting the Parksville-Qualicum Beach SPCA) will be held in Parksville Community Park starting at 10 a.m. Come out to see friendly faces and wagging tails and enjoy entertainment and activities. “This is the largest single event to help fight animal cruelty in British Columbia,” said Krista Constantineau, B.C. 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. 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.”
