The local SPCA held its 2013 Paws for a Cause fundraiser in Centennial Park in 100 Mile House on Sept. 15.

With other events going on around town, it was a quiet year for registrations, says Randi Dewhirst, 100 Mile House SPCA branch manager.

“It was a wonderful time. The weather was gorgeous.”

Paws for a Cause is held in a number of communities across the province every year and raises money to help care for thousands of animals in BC SPCA shelters.

The 16th annual SPCA Dinner and Auction – the 100 Mile House SPCA’s major fundraiser of the year – has been postponed due to poor ticket sales, Dewhirst says.

It was scheduled for Oct. 5, but the group now plans to host it sometime in the spring.
