Register for Scotiabank & BC SPCA Paws for a Cause & CONTEST!

It’s been a beautiful Summer season in Surrey, BC. We’ve all been enjoying walks in our neighbourhoods and so have our furry friends! So why not do a special walk this season to support the many animals in need that the BC SPCA supports throughout our communities? Surrey604 is proud to be the official Social Media Sponsor for the Surrey 2013 Paws for a Cause walk.

This summer encourage your friends, family and others to donate and join Paws for a Cause to fundraise for the 29 000 animals that the BC SPCA helps each year. You’ll get a chance to walk in support of the animals on event day and meet other animal supporters.  You can participate on a team with family, friends, and/or co-workers or you can register as an individual. It’s a great way to get some exercise, enjoy the weather and support an important cause.

The BC SPCA depends on the generosity of the public to help fund the work that the organization does to keep the animals safe. Unfortunately, there are no current Provincial or Federal funds allocated to the BC SPCA. The goal this year is to raise $1 million to meet the needs of the animals throughout the Province.

After the walk, there will be lots to see and do in celebration! “Elvis Presley” will serenade the crowd with a live musical performance. In addition, everyone will have a chance to witness a live K9 Nose Work demo and a show from the famous RCMP Dog Squad. There will also be prizes for the Top Fundraisers! The MC of the day will be HGTV Host Sarah Daniels. Love her show, Urban Suburban! Sarah is an animal lover and also an award-winning Realtor in the South Surrey/White Rock communities. Drop by and say hello!
