Bring your favourite four-pawed buddy to See Ya Later Ranch on Aug. 31 for their annual Dog Days of Summer event.

Join the team at See Ya Later Ranch for an afternoon of family fun while raising awareness and funds for the B.C. SPCA.

“There is going to be a few more activities at this year’s event from the SPCA. There will be demonstrations on how to safely transport your dog in a pickup truck and an agility contest, but the dog will be leading the owners around a course by smell,” said Debbie House, assistant hospitality manager of See Ya Later Ranch.

Check out the local vendors, or enter the doggie fashion show for a chance to win a two-night getaway at the Watermark Beach Resort.

The fashion show begins at 3 p.m. This year there will be 20 vendors with dog and non-dog related products including a new addition of artists featuring their work.

While your pal is making new furry friends, there will be plenty on hand for people to do such as enjoy complimentary current and newly released See Ya Later Ranch wines. Hot dogs and sliders will be served at the event for a small fee.

Admission is by donation with all proceeds going towards the B.C. SPCA.

B.C. SPCA fundraising efforts support the safe and humane treatment of over 37,000 animals across the province each year.

See Ya Later Ranch has donated over $20,000 per year to the B.C. SPCA and in kind as their official wine sponsor.

Included in these donations are proceeds from the sale of Jimmy My Pal wine with 50 cents from every bottle going directly to the B.C. SPCA.

“We are a provincial sponsor for the B.C. SPCA and fundraise throughout the whole year. We don’t charge tasting fees, instead donations go to the SPCA, as well as we have the Puppy Love event for Valentine’s and we host several Vine Tails events where people can walk around the vineyards with their dogs,”

said House. “The next Vine Tails event is held on Oct. 5, during the Fall Wine Festival.

The Dog Days of Summer event starts at noon on Aug. 31 and ends at 4 p.m.
