Looking for a fun way to help out Lucky and Tigger.

Well, look no further than Sunday’s Sweat for Pets at the Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre in support of the Ontario SPCA Midland & District Animal Centre.

“Sweat for Pets is all about having fun and supporting vulnerable animals in your community,” centre manager Caytlynn Croisier said.

Croisier said every dollar raised during the campaign provides life-changing care and shelter to animals as shelter staff prepare them to find their loving forever home.

Added Croisier: “Sweat for Pets is a small ask with a big impact.”

Participants can get moving by taking part in a one-kilometre or three-kilometre walk and celebrate their success by encouraging family, friends and co-workers to pledge their support by making a donation to an individual’s Sweat for Pets online personal fundraising page.

Sweat for Pets aims to inspire people of all ages to get active and have fun while raising funds to help vulnerable animals in need. The Ontario SPCA is a registered charity that depends on donor dollars. Funds raised through Sweat for Pets support life-changing work to give animals a second chance.

Sponsored by For Sale on Georgian Bay participants will be provided with breakfast and lunch and can take part in a variety of activities the entire family should enjoy.

Music by local artist Marlon Gibbons, ‘Doga’ with Soul Set Yoga and an OPP canine unit demonstration are just part of the fun and there are also lots of prizes to be won.
