Next month, you can join hundreds of Vancouver dog owners for the funnest and most charitable dog walk of the year.
Paws for a Cause is back for another year with a three kilometre walk along the Seawall to raise funds and awareness for animals in BC. Hundreds of dogs are expected.
This year there are a few differences. For starters, the route is a little longer and starts from David Lam Park in Yaletown instead of its usual Stanley Park location.
And second, the dog-friendly beer garden is more than twice the size of last year — its biggest ever. The Yellow Dog Beer Garden will be open from noon to 3pm.
After your walk, fill up with a delicious vegan-friendly BBQ. The festival will have interactive booths, vendors, and a kids area.
Face-painting and family-friendly activities are available to make this an enjoyable family affair.
Your dogs won’t be left out of the fun with a “Temptation Alley” that will be there for them to enjoy.
And if you have questions about your dogs, AnimalKind accredited trainers will be available to answer any behaviour questions about your pets. There will also be live demos at the festival.
100% of funds raised help local rescued animals.
