Eat for Pete’s Sake this week in Nelson

The Nelson branch of the BC SPCA invites you to eat out in support of a good cause.

You can help SPCA shelter animals like this one by dining out next week in Nelson.

The Nelson branch of the BC SPCA invites you to eat out in support of a good cause. This week, they are holding their 13th annual Eat For Pete’s Sake fundraiser.

A different restaurant each day will generously donate a portion of their proceeds to the Nelson branch.

This year the participants will be West Coast Grill at the Prestige on Monday, Main Street Diner on Tuesday, Amanda’s and the Bite food truck on Wednesday, and Bogustown India Grill on Thursday. All money raised will go towards helping local animals and residents.

The Nelson adoption centre not only adopts animals to loving homes, they create a compassionate community in many different ways. Through the centre, they provide humane education programs such as a summer camps and school visits, reunite lost pets back to their homes, provide low income spay/neuters, and respond to cruelty complaints to make sure that all animals have a voice.

“This is great opportunity to eat out during the week, and know you are supporting a good cause,” says Nelson branch manager Rob Andrew. “We see this as win-win-win for the public, the restaurants, and the SPCA. It’s a great opportunity to visit an old favourite or try out a new restaurant you’ve never visited before.”

Eat For Pete was originally created with a cute SPCA puppy named Pete as it’s poster child. Pete has long since found a loving home, but this fundraising event is not just for Pete’s sake, but for all of the animals.

For further information, contact the Nelson branch at 250-352-7178, nelson@spca.bc.ca, or drop by the adoption centre at 520-C Falls St.
