Did you know buying lottery tickets can help B.C’s most vulnerable animals? With the return of the BC SPCA Lottery for animals in need, 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 BC SPCA Lottery for animals in need, 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 BC SPCA shelters across the province.

The BC SPCA is focusing on the province’s overwhelming cat overpopulation crisis with education and prevention strategies intended to help end the suffering of thousands of homeless and abandoned cats, as outlined in its five-year Strategic Plan.

“There’s $100,000 in cash prizes in this year’s BC SPCA Lottery… for animals in need,” says Krista Constantineau, manager of fundraising events, BC SPCA.

“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 on Father’s Day.

There’s also an early bird draw on May 11 for $7,500 (the early bird ticket purchase deadline is April 26).

Sponsored by CTV and TV Week, the lottery features another bonus: each winning ticket is re-entered for the daily prizes. To order tickets, call 604-205-5998 or request your tickets online at Ticket purchasers must be 19 years of age or older and tickets can only be sold in B.C. Know your limit, play within it.
