Locals get locked in the kennel Wednesday

From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Aug. 26 people can drop off donations at the shelter on Hopedale Road for the Annual Kennel Lock-In fundraiser

SPCA supporter Ken Popove is once again planning to take part in the Kennel Lock-In at the Chilliwack SPCA on Aug. 26.

Four well-known Chilliwack personalities will be “locked up” at the Chilliwack SPCA Wednesday to benefit Paws for the Cause with the fourth annual Kennel Lock-In event.

From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Aug. 26 people can drop off donations at the shelter on Hopedale Road.

“The idea is to lock these folks into the kennel with a dog, only to be bailed out through donations,” said Ivanna Ferris, branch manager of the Chilliwack SPCA. “It all adds up.”

Funds raised this week will be added to the collection toward the local $40,000 goal for Paws for the Cause, which is on Sept. 13.

Call the shelter at 604-823-6612.
