On Aug. 20 and 21 local veterinarian Dr. Kelly O’Blenis and Abbotsford SPCA branch manager Jodi Dunlop locked themselves in a dog kennel for 29 hours, hoping to raise $5,000 for the SPCA’s annual Paws for a Cause fundraiser.

They almost made their goal, falling about $200 short, but will still accept donations until Sept. 11.

Dunlop said she would like to thank everyone who donated books and baked goods for the SPCA’s  annual sale, and for those who helped out during her weekend in the kennel.

“We were well fed and taken care of,” she said.

The next fundraiser is Paws for a Cause on Sept. 11. For more information please visit the website www.spca.bc.ca/abbotsford or call Dunlop at 604-768-4540.
