The BC SPCA Paws for a Cause is our first walkathon and we are very excited. I have been dying to give back to my community focusing on what really matters to me, animals. What I really love about Paws for a Cause is that we are walking for animals; not just companion, but farm and wild as well. It's a chance were we can be apart of a much needed fundraiser for an organization that is vital to each community.
The campaign stretches to 39 communities across BC from June to September. We aren't taking any chances so we have started our extreme training to make sure we are physically ready for the Paws for a Cause event...yes we know it's a walkathon, but you haven't seen us walk :)
Keep in mind when you watch this video that we are in fact trained professionals and do not, I repeat do not, try this at home.
The money raised will go the BC SPCA, some examples of where the money goes are: * $40.00 feeds a litter of puppies for one week. * $84.00 feeds and cares for a cat for one week * $120.00 covers emergency response for animal rescue for one night. * $10,000 pays for investigating and prosecuting one animals cruelty case. Money raised will also help build awareness on animal welfare, promote adoption etc..
Our personal goal is $1000.00, which in our eyes seems very attainable. All we ask is for a donation that is affordable to that person, whether its $5.00, $10.00, $20.00, we will be happy with any amount. The big day for Paws for a Cause walkathon is September 13 2009, Our park is the beautiful Jericho Park in Vancouver, BC.
