SPCA hosts lottery to help animals

Win big by helping animals in need and potentially put thousands of extra dollars in your pocket

With the return of the B.C. SPCA lottery, you can win big by helping animals in need and potentially put thousands of extra dollars in your pocket.

Tickets are now on sale for the 2015 B.C. SPCA lottery, which funds urgently needed medical care, sheltering, spay and neuter services, advocacy, adoption, foster care programs and other services provided for homeless and abused animals in shelters across the province.

“There’s $100,000 in cash prizes in this year’s lottery for animals in need,” said Krista Constantineau, B.C. SPCA manager of fundraising events.

“It’s a win-win for animal lovers. You’ll help save the lives of animals in need throughout the province and have the chance to win one of 31 cash prizes. We know money isn’t everything, but it can sure help to have some extra cash on hand.”

Tickets are $25 each, three for $60 and five for $90. There are daily cash prizes throughout June – $2,500 each day and $5,000 on Fridays – with a special prize of $10,000 awarded Father’s Day. There’s also an early bird draw May 11 for $7,500 (the early bird ticket purchase deadline is April 26).

Each winning ticket is also re-entered for the daily prizes.

To order tickets, call 604-205-5998 or request your tickets online at spca.bc.ca/lottery.
