Why host a charity garage sale for the BC SPCA?
We love animals! We’re having this garage sale for the BC SPCA to raise money for their Paws for a Cause walk in September. This is a part of a year long fundraising campaign for them. We’ve done in store donations, a bake sale, and a pub night so far.
The BC SPCA is the largest animal protection group of its kind in North America. They protect all animals – pets, farm animals, and wildlife.
They’re the only group who can investigate animal cruelty cases. As well, only the BC SPCA can take actions to rescue animals in distress. Both of these things is due to the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. Additionally, they operate 36 branches, 5 veterinary locations, a wildlife rehab centre, and several no-kill shelters.
Whew! That’s a lot!
So why do they need our help? Well, to give one example: investigations. The BC SPCA spends $2.5 million dollars investigating cases of animal cruelty yearly. None of these investigations are funded by the government. It’s all us, baby.
Because of the great lengths they go protecting the animals among us, we’ve pledged to raise $10,000 this year. The total of our efforts the Paws for a Cause Walk on September 8th, 2019.
