A Vancouver cafe opened its doors Friday for a good cause–serving up coffee to help get some adoptable dogs into good homes.
The BC SPCA branches in Burnaby, Vancouver and West Vancouver has brought in some of their shelter dogs to the cafe. “
With the goal of educating potential adopters about some of the amazing animals we have at BC SPCA shelters – not only in the Lower Mainland but also, throughout the entire province – Cups & Pups allows people to meet with just some of the wonderful animals in BC SPCA care,” says Tess Repenning, BC SPCA officer, fundraising events. “People can also ask questions and learn more about the work of the BC SPCA.”
If people are already thinking about adopting a dog from the BC SPCA, this event might be just the place to find out more, she adds.
“Why not come on your lunch break, enjoy a cup of great coffee, and maybe even meet your newest, furry family member,” Repenning says. “You’ll get your caffeine fix and canine love, all while supporting a fantastic cause. Even if you’re not looking to adopt, it’s a fantastic opportunity to spend your lunch hour having fun with some lovable, four-legged furballs.”
Admission to Cups & Pups is $10, with coffee available by donation. TAXI Café is located at 515 Richards St., Vancouver.
