Tickets are on sale now for BC SPCA’s Lottery… for the animals.

The annual lottery raises funds for programs and services that benefit animals in need – from medical care and shelter to advocacy and foster care.

Education and prevention strategies to address B.C.’s cat crisis is a key focus of the society’s five-year strategic plan.

The lottery offers a chance at 31 cash prizes, starting with a $7,500 early bird draw on Mother’s Day (May 11).

There will be daily cash prizes throughout June, and a $10,000 prize awarded on Father’s Day.

Tickets are $25 each, three for $60 or five for $90. To order, call 604-205-5998 or visit spca.bc.ca/lottery.
