tn IMG 6182September 9 was a day for the dogs at Bayfront Park in Hamilton as the Hamilton Burlington SPCA hosted the 29th Annual Wiggle Waggle Walk.  Dogs of all shapes and sizes were out to take part along with some of their human friends.  Vendors, music, great local Hamilton food trucks and a special police dog display were all parts of this fantastic fundraiser.  

The HPFFA Charity & Communicty Support Crew were on hand to help with some fundraising and set up their kid's fire fighter obstacle course to put the non-furry attendees through a fun challenge.  Thanks to everyone who volunteered and stopped by to take on the course!

In addition to the Sirens for Life Campaign, the HPFFA also hosts an internal Platoon Challenge, to see which Platoon is most willing to roll up their sleeves. Each Platoon was assigned a date to donate as a group in July.  As well, HPFFA friends and family are encouraged to donate on behalf of the Platoon of their choice any time during the campaign.  Any HPPFA members who missed their Platoon date can donate anytime in July or August..

Remember – you can donate every 56 days for men and every 84 days for women. Please call 1-888-2-DONATE, visit www.blood.ca or download the APP to make your next appointment!
