The Surrey Animal Resource Centre in Cloverdale is holding an open house this Saturday, providing the public with an opportunity to visit the facility, speak with animal experts and meet the animals available for adoption.

Other activities include music, entertainment, face painting, cake and free giveaways.

Adoption fees will be waived during the event, running from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 4. Mayor Dianne Watts is slated to speak at noon.

The Surrey Animal Resource Centre, which opened last year at 17944 Colebrook Road, houses animals awaiting adoption, provides information about owner responsibilities, dog off-leash areas, the City of Surrey’s animal regulations, and serves as a call centre for lost pets and animal complaints.
