The annual SPCA Paws for a Cause Walk returns to Abbotsford on Sept. 13.

The SPCA holds its annual event on Sunday, Sept. 13 to raise funds for abused, injured, neglected and homeless animals throughout the province.

Abbotsford is among the more than 30 communities taking part in the Paws for a Cause Walk to benefit the local branch. Activities get underway at 9 a.m. and the walk begins at 10 a.m. at Mill Lake Park.

Participants will be able to enjoy entertainment and activities, a barbecue and community vendor booths.

“This is the largest single event to help fight animal cruelty in British Columbia,” said Krista Constantineau, BC SPCA manager of fundraising events. “We are overwhelmed by the participation each year it’s so great to see thousands of people come together across the province to help B.C.’s most vulnerable animals and the great news is, this year, registration numbers are up.”
