Animal lovers in the Tri-Cities are urged to get moving to help a furry friend.
Registration is open for the annual Scotiabank and BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk, held each fall to raise funds for homeless and abused animals in B.C. Each year, participants in 37 communities around the province walk with colleagues, friends, family and with their dogs to raise $1 million to help animals in need.
Locally, Paws for a Cause will be held at Lafarge Lake on Sunday, Sept. 11. Registration begins at 10 a.m., with the walk starting at 11:30 a.m. Activities will include: dog agility demonstration, fashion show, vendor booths and doggy games.

"This is the largest single event supporting animals in B.C.," Denise Meade, the BC SPCA's director of development, said in a press release. "Participants are already signing up and will be fundraising in their own communities all summer long."
