Tickets on sale for SPCA benefit

Tickets are now on sale for the 2011 BC SPCA Lottery for the Animals, with the prize money – to be given away in May – doubled to $100,000.

The lottery funds urgently needed medical care, sheltering, spay and neuter services, advocacy, adoption and foster-care programs and other services provided for homeless and abused animals in SPCA shelters across the province.

“The lottery is a great way to help the BC SPCA care for the nearly 34,000 animals we rescue each year,” BC SPCA development director Denise Meade said. “Not only will you be helping the animals, but you’ll have a chance to win a jackpot yourself. It is a win-win situation for animal lovers.”

Tickets are $25 each, three for $55 and five for $80. There are daily draws throughout May for $2,500 cash prizes, with a larger prize of $5,000 awarded each Friday.

There is also a special Mother’s Day draw worth $10,000.

Back this year is the special Early Bird Draw April 1 (cutoff for early bird sales is March 18) when $5,000 will be given away.

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

To order tickets, visit or call 604-205-5998 or 1-855-205-5998. Ticket purchasers must be 19 years or older, and tickets can only be sold in B.C.
