The SPCA Works to Save 250 Lives in Five Days

Waste Industries offers $15,000 matching gift for the 2019 SPCA Dog Walk& Woofstock Event

RALEIGH, N.C. – The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) of Wake County is thrilled to announce an immediate opportunity to save the lives of 250 animals by midnight this Saturday, April 27th. Waste Industries will match donations to the SPCA’s 2019 Dog Walk and Woofstock up to $15,000 by Saturday night.

It takes $120 to save the life of an animal at the SPCA of Wake County. In shelters across North Carolina, adoptable pets are running out of time and space. These are lives that can easily be saved when people donate towards the SPCA’s Dog Walk & Woofstock event.

“Even if you aren’t able to make it to the event on Saturday, you can still make a big difference by donating to the SPCA’s Facebook Fundraiser or on our website at spcawake.org/walk,” says Tara Lynn, Media Manager for the SPCA. “This is a quick, easy way to double your donation and save twice as many lives.”

The SPCA hopes to raise $15,000 by midnight Saturday to make the matching goal. Each dollar will be doubled up to $15,000 courtesy of Waste Industries. The $30,000 total will allow the SPCA to rescue 250 homeless pets in our community.

The Raleigh-based non-profit is hosting a Facebook fundraiser where people can make donations (https://www.facebook.com/donate/2020541618255037/).

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the signature event which will take place Saturday, April 27th at Booth Amphitheatre in Cary.

About the Event:

Each year, nearly 2,500 people and 1,000 dogs attend the event. The goal of the Dog Walk is to raise money to provide medical care, spay/neuter services, shelter, food, and love to the more than 3,600 animals the SPCA of Wake County rescues or rehomes each year.

People can join by registering for the walk online at SPCAwake.org/walk. Registration is $35 for adults and $20 for youth ages 14 to eight. Kids seven years old and younger are free (but can register as a youth participant if they would like an event t-shirt).

The SPCA Dog Walk and Woofstock will be Saturday, April 27th, 2019 from 9:00a.m. to 1:00p.m. Participants can enjoy vendor booths, food trucks, music and more.

There will be a rally at the stage emceed by Two Men and a Mom of Mix 101.5, this year’s presenting media sponsor. Then pets and their people will join together to walk around Symphony Lake at 11:00a.m.
