Yep – it’s that time of year again and I am all registered and stoked to raise money walking the old 5km for the SPCA!
Here is a pic of some super cute wild BC bunnies to get you motivated! They are super adorable babies that live right outside my house. Awwwwww!
******If you are as excited as I am and don’t want to read what I have written below – you can go straight here to make a donation to my BC SPCA Paws for a Cause Walk*******
First off, I would like to give a huge thank you to all my past supporters. This cause means a lot to me and your support over the past 4 years really makes participating in the walk a heck of a lot more fun!
My walk is on September 7th. Yes, I am starting campaigning a little early this year because I will be pretty busy later this summer ;)
Before I go on, here is a little info about the BC branch of the SPCA
The purpose of this event is to raise much needed funds for the care and protection of animals across the province of BC. All animals. The BCSPCA helps look after all our furry little friends – including wild and farm animals – because they know all kinds of animals are important.
Established in 1895, the BC SPCA is a not-for-profit organization that receives no government funding and is entirely reliant upon community support. Each year the BC SPCA provides emergency medical care and sheltering for nearly 29,000 animals that may have been abandoned, abused, neglected, or surrendered because their owner is unable or unwilling to care for them any longer. This annual walk funds most of the BC SPCAs operations.
This year, the BC SPCA Paws for a Cause has a particular focus – a walk to fight animal cruelty! The BC SPCA is the only animal welfare agency with the mandate and authority to respond to complaints of animal cruelty in B.C. Last year, the BC SPCA conducted 7,839 new cruelty investigations.
The Paws for a Cause walk helps fund cruelty investigations and, more importantly, helps to prevent cruelty before it occurs through legislation, education, and awareness.
Please support me, and the BC SPCA, by donating today!
Don’t be shy if you can’t afford tons of bucks. Every little bit helps. Even a single dollar will work to educate one student through the “Kindness Counts” curriculum helping to stop the cycle of abuse by teaching empathy.
This organization works hard to streamline its admin and overhead costs. 80% of the funds raised goes directly towards services for animals. With the other 20% going to admin and revenue development.
