Vancouver Opera and the Furry Faces

Why is Vancouver Opera taking part of the BCSCPCA's Paws for a Cause walk on Sunday, September 13?

Because we love our animals, that's why. And, it's a great cause to support!

This year, BCSPCA has set a goal to raise $950,000 to help companion, farm and wild animals.

Every dollar donated for the Paws for a Cause walk will help in the following:

$80 feeds a litter of puppies for eight weeks;
$100 feeds a litter of abandoned kittens for one month;
$75 neuters one cat;
$84 feeds and cares for a cat for one week;
$100 neuters one dog;
$105 feeds and cares for a dog for one week;
$110 spays one cat;
$120 covers emergency response for animal rescue for one night;
$150 spays one dog;
$200 pays for emergency and first aid equipment for our constables;
$250 pays for one dental exam;
$1,000 provides 20 beds for dogs;
$10,000 pays for the investigation and prosecution of one animal cruelty case.
