The event is family friendly, tiny humans and fur babies alike are welcome. There will be a BBQ, a dog agility course, and a dog bowl licking competition. May the best pooch win!

The money raised will go towards caring for animals at the West Vancouver, Vancouver and Burnaby BC SPCA shelters. Last year alone the BC SPCA rescued 26,213 injured, homeless, neglected and abused animals across the province. Paws for a Cause is a great way to be involved in animal rescue.
