Puppy Pub Day Raises Money For SPCA
Prince George, B.C. – Animal lovers have converged on the Westwood Pub’s parking lot for today’s SPCA Puppy Pub Day.
“It’s a fundraiser kicking off our May challenge with Kamloops,” says North Cariboo SPCA branch manager Jamie Walsh. “It’s a great turnout, we have inflatables, a barbecue, face-painting, and a hockey shoot-out.”
She says today’s event is one of several this month in a bid to raise $50,000, which Walsh says will go towards the care of animals.
Westwood Pub owner Nathan Coole was more than pleased to offer up his parking lot noting “when it comes to the SPCA I’m a huge supporter.”
Also on hand is Prince George Mayor Lyn Hall, who’s been busy serving up hot dogs and burgers.
“Take a look at what this is doing not only for the SPCA but the entire neighbourhood, it’s a great cause.”
He also admits he’s a big time animal lover.
“I am. I have an 18 year old Miniature Poodle. She can’t see, can’t hear, she spends a lot of time on our coach and a lot of time in our backyard.”
Following today’s event, the SPCA is planning other fundraisers, including an open house next weekend, and a Jail and Bail May 23 at Pine Centre Mall.
