The Prince Rupert BC SPCA has set the date for its annual Paws for a Cause fundraising walk.

This year’s event is scheduled to take place on Sept. 13 at Mariner’s Park. Registration will get underway at 11 a.m. with the three kilometre walk scheduled to begin at noon.

Funds raised through the Scotiabank and BC SPCA Paws for a Cause help the BC SPCA care for abused, injured and abandoned animals and work to prevent cruelty before it occurs.

“By signing up and collecting donations, you’re not just helping thousands of animals in need of care throughout B.C.,” said SPCA fundraising manager Krista Constantineau.

“You’ll also enjoy a fun-filled day with activities for the whole family, including your four-legged friends.”
