It’s time to start fundraising for the annual BC SPCA Paws for a Cause — Walk for the Animals!

This year, the BCSPCA is hosting their largest fundraiser, the Paws for a Cause, on Sept. 9. This is a province-wide event where each community participates by raising funds for their local branch of the BCSPCA.

The registration fee is $25, and includes a Paws for a Cause T-shirt, your name entered for door prizes and participation in the contests at the event.

There are two ways to register: Registering online is easy by going to www.spca.bc.ca and clicking on the Paws for a Cause banner, then follow the registration instructions. Or, pick up a pledge form at various locations throughout the Comox Valley.

This year’s event will be at Marina Park in Comox. The event will include a casual walk, and contests for the animals and their human companions with prizes for both to enjoy. There will be animal-related booths, sponsor booths, entertainment, food and refreshments.

For information on having a booth or to be a prize donor, please contact Joan at the Comox Valley SPCA at 250-339-7722 or e-mail comoxvalley@spca.bc.ca.

Thanks to local sponsors the Eagle 97.3, Comox Valley Record, Brycyn Enterprises, Van Isle Veterinary Hospital, Samuel Ennis-Remax, First Insurance Agencies, and Quality Foods Comox.
