SPCA planning garden party

New Surrey branch to host fundraiser June 20 to support animal-rescue programs.

The BC SPCA is set to host an outdoor garden party later this month in Surrey.

The event is set for June 20, from 5-9 p.m., and will be held at the SPCA’s Surrey location (16748 50 Ave.), which opened last year.

At the garden party, guests can sample cheese and wine, tour the new location –  which includes a horse barn and education centre, and is also the home base for the organization’s cruelty investigation officers – and speak with BC SPCA representatives who can answer questions about the organization’s programs.

“We’re encouraging animal lovers, SPCA supporters and active community members to come and tour the new facility, meet some adoptable animals and learn how the public’s generous donations are used,” says Surrey BC SPCA Education & Adoption Centre manager Rodney Weleschuk.

“It is a fundraising event with proceeds going to help the animals in need in our care, but also, a thoroughly enjoyable summer evening event. We’re hoping for a great turnout from the local community.”

Tickets to the event are $25, and are available online at www.spca.bc.ca. For more information, call the Surrey SPCA at 604-576-8960 or email surrey@spca.bc.ca
