Petsecure Helps Nova Scotia SPCA Hold Annual Bark in the Park Event

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwire - Sept. 13, 2012) - Petsecure is proud to join the Nova Scotia SPCA as a sponsor for the 3rd annual Bark in the Park event. Funds raised during the September 15 event will help the Nova Scotia SPCA provide medical treatment to the animals in its care and conduct cruelty investigations across Nova Scotia. Bark in the Park is the Nova Scotia SPCA's biggest fundraiser of the year.

"The work the Nova Scotia SPCA does is so important to the community," said Bill Skubovius, Vice President of Business Development at Petsecure. "As advocates for responsible pet ownership ourselves, we support this worthy organization."

Held Saturday, September 15 at Shubie Park in Dartmouth, Bark in the Park will run rain or shine from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. Participants will enjoy live entertainment, a barbecue, agility and flyball demonstrations, "Ask-a-Vet" sessions, activities for kids, contests, prizes, and more.

"Bark in the Park is the Nova Scotia SPCA's biggest fundraiser of the year," said Kristin Williams, Executive Director of Nova Scotia SPCA. "Proceeds raised will support cruelty investigations and help cover the thousands of dollars spent each month to provide the necessary medical care for all animals prior to adoption."
