BCSPCA Paws for a Cause 2008

Marine Harvest Mutts Team 2008

For the second year in a row, Marine Harvest Canada staff have been awarded the #1 corporate donor prize at the Campbell River ‘Paws for a Cause’ walk. The team, called the “Marine Harvest Mutts”, is comprised of fish farmers, processing plant staff, hatchery staff and administration that all work for Marine Harvest Canada.
‘Paws for a Cause’ is the largest fundraising campaign by the BCSPCA that helps support animals in British Columbia.
This year, Leone Bliss captained the winning team by selling home made baked goods (thanks to Duane Yates who ate most of the goodies!), holding a raffle draw and soliciting donations from aquaculture suppliers.
Thanks to all Marine Harvest staff who donated money and a special thanks to those families that came out for the 4 kilometre walk on September 14th. A very, very special thanks to the Port Hardy Processing Plant staff that traveled 2 1/2 hours to attend the event!!
After the totals were in, the “Marine Harvest Mutts” donated $5,403.14 to the BCSPCA.
The Marine Harvest Mutts placed third in all of BC!!!

Way to go team!
