Dog owners be not deterred — you and your leashed buddy are more than welcome to join the cause. Registration includes a T-shirt and swag bag.

Hit up plant-based dog food brand Virchew HQ in Kitsilano for their Spring Open House. This women-owned brand serves vegan meals to dogs across British Columbia. You won’t go hungry either.
