PAWS FOR A CAUSE 2009

Last summer, I was honoured to take part in the BC-SPCA‘s annual Paws For A Cause fundraiser. With the help of some furry friends, my fundraising efforts contributed to numerous people making incredibly generous donations. When all was said and done, thousands of dollars went directly into local animal shelters!

Buddy!

Contrary to what some might believe, the BC-SPCA helps any and all animals that require help. This includes domestic animals, farm animals and even our critters of the wild, both large and small. A little bit of funding can go an incredibly long way…

  • $75 neuters one cat;
  • $80 feeds a litter of puppies for eight weeks;
  • $100 neuters one dog;
  • $110 spays one cat;
  • $120 covers emergency response for animal rescue for one night;
  • $200 pays for emergency and first aid equipment for our constables;
  • $1,000 provides 20 beds for dogs;
  • $10,000 pays for the investigation and prosecution of one animal cruelty case

More statistics and facts can be found here.

This is only a small example of how your contribution – no matter the size – can help. In fact, in 2008 the BC-SPCA rescued over 36,000 injured, homeless, neglected and abused animals!

Buddies!

This year, the campaign is trying to raise $950,000 Province-wide, and I’ve set a personal goal of at least $1,500. On Sunday, September 13, 2009 Jordy, Charley and I will be joining countless others in participating in one of many local walks across British Columbia. Last year I took part in the Vancouver walk and will instead be participating in the event in the Comox Valley this year.

Please consider if sponsoring the three of us is something you can do – even donating a dollar and foregoing your daily coffee helps! To donate, please visit my personal campaign page here.

Show your support and lend a “paw” to help animals in need!

  1. I’ve been thinking volunteering at BCSPCA for a while now (I love dogs but don’t have one). But most, if not all of the week day volunteering slots are during work time. I’m usually away on weekends. Not sure how I could help. =(

  2. @Tawcan – I know how you could help… donate! 😀
