Who do you sweat for? Sweat for Pets honours our beloved pets
Sweat for Pets, the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society’s virtual fundraiser, takes place from May 25th to June 25th, and we are already off to a running start! We have seen so much support across the province for animals in need, and many participants sharing why they sweat for pets!
Melody and Andy
Melody, a long-time supporter of the Ontario SPCA, became involved in Sweat for Pets after losing her companion animal, Andy. She found that Sweat for Pets, and the former Friends for Life! Walk, was a way to not only grieve his loss, but to share his story and keep him alive in a way that genuinely honoured his memory.
“I want to bring awareness to animal wellness and educate people about caring for and loving companion animals. Animals deserve respect and love,” says Melody.
Melody also loves participating in Sweat for Pets for the opportunities it gives her to connect with her friends, family, and co-workers – especially in these socially distanced times. Over the years, her personal community has supported Melody in her mission to change the lives of animals in need. She says that each year they get increasingly creative in their fundraising initiatives, and it’s a wonderful way to spread happiness and joy while making a difference.
“Without these fundraising events, homeless animals would not be able to have the opportunity to find a furever home.”
