Nelson pets get to have their special Lakeside Park day

The 2012 Scotiabank and BC SPCA Paws for a Cause will take off this Sunday with pets and owners gathering for the fundraiser.

The 2012 Scotiabank and BC SPCA Paws for a Cause will take off from Lakeside Rotary Park this Sunday with pets and owners gathering for the fundraiser.

“The Scotiabank and BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk is a fun way to get involved and make a huge impact in the lives of animals in need,” said Farrah Rooney, manager of fundraising events at the BC SPCA.

“Our walks include food, fabulous prizes and lots of fun activities for our two and four-legged participants. The best part is that the funds raised help save the lives of thousands of abused, injured, neglected and homeless animals in BC.”

Rooney notes that the BC SPCA is a non-for-profit organization that relies on community support to carry out cruelty investigations, sheltering and a wide range of services for more than 32,000 animals each year.

Those interested in getting involved in the Scotiabank and BC SPCA Paws for a Cause are encouraged to join as an individual, as a group, or as a corporate team. The BC SPCA has set up a comprehensive website at spca.bc.ca/walk, with sponsorship opportunities, fundraising ideas, pledge kits, posters, merchandise and ways to volunteer.

The Paws for a Cause walk in Nelson will be held at Lakeside Park on September 9 with registration starting at 9 a.m. and  the walk starting at 10:30 a.m. (changed from 11:00 a.m.). Registration is $25.
