The annual Scotiabank & BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk is coming up on Sunday, September 8, 2013 in 35 communities throughout BC. It’s lovingly referred to as the biggest doggy party of the year and it helps to raise much-needed funds which stay right in local communities.
The goal for this year’s Scotiabank & BC SPCA Paws for a Cause is to raise $1 million to fight animal cruelty in BC. You can sign up to participate in the walk or donate to a participant to support the cause.
My friend Keira has done the walk for several years and she is participating with her rescued pal Jordy once again this year in Comox:
“Last year my then three-year-old niece joined me in the Comox Valley for her first-ever Paws for a Cause walk and was absolutely delighted! She constantly shrieked with joy at being surrounded by dogs of all shapes, sizes, colours and breeds. My participation in Paws for a Cause will always primarily be for the sake of the animals but I know now that I’m also setting an example of love and compassion for all creatures – whether furry, scaly, sweet or stinky.”
To get the word out about Paws for the Cause walks around BC – whether you would like to participate or support a participant – Pile of Pillows has supplied the BC SPCA with NOVOpets® pet beds and I get to give away three of them.
The pet bed is cozy, scratch-proof and easy care. The removable, washable cover makes care easy. A water resistant cover on the inner bed cushion offers added protection from drool, wet paws and accidents. All NOVOpets® Pet Pillows are filled with GeoBlend®, a fill that lowers your carbon footprint. GeoBlend® is a soft, synthetic fill that is eco and pet friendly. All pet beds are made in Canada.
