The newest member of the Kamloops NorthPaws is dreaming of full stands today, on what was supposed to be our inaugural home opener.
This large brown and white canine was adopted from the BC SPCA Kamloops & District Branch to keep us company leading up to our first season at Norbrock Stadium next summer.
This quiet doggo is very playful and loves to make new friends. This dog is very well-trained and can shake a paw, roll over, play fetch in the outfield and even walk on two legs.
Our new companion has been settling in and has already been spotted bounding through the outfield, dancing in the bleachers, and chasing geese and marmots around Mac Island. Although puzzled by the lack of fans to play with, this friendly canine is excited to explore the Kamloops region this summer.
Keep your eyes out for your chance to meet our new friend this summer, and when you do, please be gentle and don’t play too… ruff.
The new pup does not yet have a name and we need your help. Send us your best, creative ideas.
50/50 in partnership with Kamloops Sports Council Goes Online
We were to host a 50/50 raffle, in partnership with the Kamloops Sports Council, at each of our home games this season to raise money for local sport organizations. The raffle has now shifted online due to of the cancellation of our season. Our goal is to help these groups to continue to enrich lifestyle through sport with monetary assistance from this 50/50 raffle. All funds raised will be going right back into local sporting organizations in the Kamloops region.
