They would do anything for love – including going behind bars.
Local celebrities and community leaders will get locked into dog kennels at the SPCA to raise funds for abused and homeless animals this month.
“Lock-In for Love is a fun event that raises urgently needed funds for our community’s most vulnerable animals,” says Tess Repenning, B.C. SPCA manager of community fundraising. “Participants share kennel space with some cuddly SPCA canines while raising enough money to be let out. Last year, more than $20,000 was raised in a matter of hours, all for abused, neglected, homeless, injured and sick animals in the province, thanks to some superstar participants.”
This year, Lock-In for Love locations in the Okanagan region include:
Kelowna – June 21
South Okanagan (Penticton) – June 19
Vernon – June 22
