Help fight animal cruelty in the community by registering and fundraising for the 2015 Scotiabank and BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk.

In Cowichan, the walk will benefit the Cowichan SPCA branch, which cares for abused, injured, neglected and homeless animals in the Valley. It is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 13, with registration beginning at 9:30 a.m. and the walk commencing at 11 a.m. at McAdam Park in Duncan.

“This is the largest single event to help fight animal cruelty in British Columbia,” said Krista Constantineau, BC SPCA manager of fundraising events. “We are overwhelmed by the participation each year — it’s so great to see thousands of people come together across the province to help B.C.’s most vulnerable animals — and the great news is, this year, registration numbers are up. Our amazing supporters not only raise essential funds, the events are so much fun for two-legged and four-legged participants.”

Along with the walk there will be entertainment and activities including community vendors, a barbecue, doggie games, photo booth, prizes and SPCA staff available to answer questions.

Juice FM is the local sponsor of the event. To register or donate go to spca.bc.ca/walk
