An 'Offleashed' success for the BC SPCA

Petsecure Territory Managers Ken and Chantelle attended the BC SPCA's Offleashed gala event, which raised money for the organization's work toward animal welfare in the province of British Columbia.

The event, held at the Four Seasons Vancouver on Oct. 22, raised a fantastic $360,000 for animals in need -- a huge step up from last year's total of $266,000. The gala featured a cocktail reception, a gourmet dinner inspired by an award-winning executive chef, entertainment, auctions, and the best part: a cuddle lounge featuring a variety of animals for snuggles.

"It was another well-done event by the SPCA," says Chantelle. "They had 300 people attend, which was sold out. The top-selling auction item -- dinner for eight with top chefs Umberto Menghi and Michael Jacob -- went for a record $15,000!"

The BC SPCA is a not-for-profit organization reliant on public donations. Their mission is to protect and enhance the quality of life for domestic, farm and wild animals in BC. Find out more at their website.
