Friends for Life! Walk™ by the numbers

by | Campaigns |

Our annual Friends for Life! Walk™ is coming up this weekend! Can you believe it’s already almost the end of September? Here’s some more information about the walk – by the numbers!

The Friends for Life! Walk™ is a major fundraiser for the Ontario SPCA & Humane Society and its Affiliates. By lacing up and collecting pledges for animals in your community, you’re supporting animals in need.

More than just a fundraising walk, the Friends for Life! Walk is a fun-filled day that offers something for everyone. From barbecues and live music to pet vendors and activities for the kids, it’s the purr-fect way to spend a day with friends and family who share a love of animals.

I stand behind SPCA with my monthly gift

I stand behind SPCA with my monthly gift. I am so happy there are folks like you to care for those who can’t help themselves.  My family and I have had animals all our lives and know what a comfort they are.  Thank you SPCA.
