Paws for a Cause in Trail

Helping to fight animal cruelty is as easy as a walk in the park on Sept. 9 in Trail

Helping to fight animal cruelty is as easy as a walk in the park.

Animal lovers across the province are already registering and fundraising for the annual Scotiabank and BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk, which is being hosted in more than 30 communities in B.C. throughout September and October – and you still have plenty of time to participate in your community.

The annual walk, benefitting the BC SPCA Trail Regional Branch, will be held at Gyro Park on Saturday, Sept. 9, from 10 a.m. with the walk starting at 11 a.m. Participants will be able to enjoy fantastic entertainment and activities, pizza, home-baking, and an SPCA merchandise booth.

Generously supported by our local sponsors the event brings animal lovers and their furry friends from all walks of life together for a great time as well as a fantastic cause.

“This is the largest single event to help fight animal cruelty in British Columbia,” says Carina Stirling, BC SPCA officer 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 – and 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.”
