Join The OSPCA Walk-A-Thon!

By Lisa Ng

A sponsored hip + urban girl post.

Are you the proud parent of a fur baby?

We want you and your dog to join the Ontario SPCA at the third annual Friends for Life! Walk, presented by Nutrience.

The event will be held the weekend of September 20th and 21st all over Ontario. Psst! You can look for the specific date and venue along with a location near you right on over here.

Pet-lovers of all ages are encouraged to participate in the Friends for Life! walk, gather sponsors and walk in support of thousands of animals in need. Tanya Kim, anchor of CTV’s ETALK and Honourary Provincial Chairperson for the Friends for Life! Walk, and her dog, Miss Louise will be hosting the event in Newmarket. The walk will be followed by a barbeque, an open house at the OSPCA provincial headquarters and fun activities for both families and their four-legged friends.

Don’t have a pet? You can still participate as a pet-lover and participate in the walk and all of the special events for this worthwhile cause.

Paul’s dog, a mini Australian shepherd named Jake is a true member of the family. I can’t tell you how much he has improved our lives and how his crazy antics and unconditional love can turn any day around. Whenever he sees me walk in the door he associates me with belly rubs and I make sure I give him my full attention when I get home. He’s the reason why I rally behind the work of the OSPCA.

The OSPCA supports at-risk animals across Ontario and the GTA. They work to enforce animal welfare legislation to make sure all animals are treated properly. Your participation and donations can improve the life of animals across the province. Last year’s walk raised over $375,000!
