Chilliwack SPCA’s Paws for a Cause walk brings in funds for homeless animals

Registration is now open for the BC SPCA’s Paws for a Cause, an annual fundraiser which takes place in September throughout the province.

There will be seven walks across B.C., including Metro Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, Surrey, the Tri-Cities, the Okanagan, Victoria and the Sunshine Coast.

Paws for a Cause is the Fraser Valley’s largest dog walk. The five-kilometre walk in Chilliwack is set for Sunday, Sept. 8 and will take place at Vedder River Park.

“All registered participants receive a walk bib on event day to write the name of the animals they are walking for,” says Tess Repenning, BC SPCA manager. “Bring your dog, meet fellow animal lovers in your community, enjoy fun activities and walk together to help animals in need.”

“Whether you’d like to sign up for the event as an individual or a team, you’ll be able to enjoy fundraising support right up to the day of the event,” she adds.

All funds raised here will go to the Chilliwack SPCA to provide emergency care and other services for homeless animals. In 2018, Paws for a Cause raised nearly $420,000 in B.C.

Chilliwack SPCA’s Paws for a Cause is Sunday, Sept. 8. Event registration opens at 11 a.m. at Vedder River Park and the walk begins at noon. There will also be games, children’s activities, a barbecue and a beer garden by Yellow Dog Brewing.

Walk registration fees are $20 for adults and $10 for youth. Those who sign up before June 30 will benefit from an early-bird rate ($5 off your registration fee) by using discount code “HURRY.”

Those interested in becoming a vendor at this year’s festival or volunteering at the event can email chilliwack@spca.bc.ca or call 604-823-6612.
