Paws for a Cause nearing in Prince Rupert

You can fight animal cruelty in your community by registering and fundraising for the 2014 Scotiabank and BC SPCA Paws for a Cause.

Some animals never know kindness. The good news is, you can fight animal cruelty in your community by registering and fundraising for the 2014 Scotiabank and BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk, held each September to raise funds for abused, injured, neglected and homeless animals throughout B.C.

This year, participants in 31 communities throughout the province will walk to raise funds to help animals in need across British Columbia.

The Paws for a Cause walk to fight animal cruelty in Prince Rupert will be held at Mariner’s Park on Sunday, Sept. 7 from 11 a.m. with the walk starting at noon. Proceeds from the Prince Rupert walk will benefit animals at the Prince Rupert SPCA. Participants can enjoy a variety of entertainment and fun activities, including games and prizes after the walk.
