SPCA open house

Adopt an animal or treat the family pet to a nail trimming – these options and more are part of the Surrey SPCA’s annual open house, set for May 15 at the 6706 152 St. shelter.

The 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. event is to also include education booths, a pet photo booth and an ‘ask a vet’ booth, as well as kids activities and pet-toy making station.

Noting May is Be Kind to Animals month, BC SPCA spokesperson Lorie Chortyk said the open house “is an opportunity for people to meet the animals available for adoption and to have fun learning more about how to help animals in the community.”

The open house is sponsored by Hill’s Science Diet. Hill’s donates free pwt food in BC SPCA branches across the province, a program touted to promote the health of shelter animals, making them more adoptable and enabling animals to be transferred between shelters without suffering any ill effects from having to change pet food.
