Brockville – The Ontario SPCA – Leeds & Grenville Animal Centre is asking animal lovers of all ages to help change the lives of animals in need, one step at a time, at its Friends for Life! Walk™ on Saturday, September 22, 2018.

Highlights of the Leeds & Grenville Animal Centre’s event, taking place at Block House Railway Tunnel entrance, include draw prizes and lunch and entertainment and so much more! It’s the purr-fect way to spend a day with friends and family who share a love of animals.
“We can’t do this alone, which is why we need you to go the extra mile to help vulnerable animals,” says Carlyle. “By participating in the Friends for Life! Walk and collecting pledges, you are giving vulnerable animals the care and second chance they deserve.”
