SPCA special events are integral to providing hope and happiness to animals in need! Below are the events that the SPCA will be hosting in 2017.

Paws in the Park - Sept. 23, 2017
As the SPCA’s longest-running fundraiser, Paws in the Park invites people to come with (or without) their dog for a scenic two-mile walk at Beaver Island State Park. The event will be held on September 23, 2017 and will include the opportunity for participants to interact with 50+ pet-related vendors and exhibitors, dog contests, an agility course for the dogs, and fun for children and adults alike. 

Participants are encouraged to raise pledges that directly benefit the people and animals that the SPCA assists. In return, these participants earn exciting prizes. Visit the Paws in the Park page for more details or to register!

Guests sampled delicious wines, beer, and food from local wineries, breweries, and restaurants. Several pet-themed vendors and exhibitors were on hand as well as a silent auction and basket raffle.
