It was almost two years ago that I first met Casey and Benji. We spent an entire evening together when Matt was doing his living room show, I threw a chew toy, Casey would retrieve it, I would get slobber on my hand (while live blogging) and the rest is history.

These little guys bring so much joy to their family and friends and in their honor my good friend Keira initiated a campaign to raise money for the SPCA’s Paws for a Cause.

Donations to the SPCA help supply the following:
$40 feeds a litter of puppies for eight weeks; $50 feeds a litter of abandoned kittens for one month; $75 neuters one cat; $84 feeds and cares for a cat for one week; $100 neuters one dog; $105 feeds and cares for a dog for one week; $110 spays one cat; $120 covers emergency response for animal rescue for one night; $150 spays one dog; $200 pays for emergency and first aid equipment for our constables; $250 pays for one dental exam; $1,000 provides 20 beds for dogs; $10,000 pays for the investigation and prosecution of one animal cruelty case.

“My unconditional love for my dogs is equal to that felt for my family and dearest friends. I would, without hesitation, sacrifice whatever need be sacrificed to see them healthy and happy, they are that important to me.” – Matthew Good. You can also read Keira’s post here.

The Vancouver event involves a 2.5km walk along with a rally at Vanier Park and there are several more walks taking place across the province. Often in life you make or lose friends and trust is given and taken away – such is not the case with animals. Good luck boys, make Auntie Becky proud!
