Tickets are on sale now for the 2012 BC SPCA Lottery, which 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 BC SPCA shelters across the province.

This year the BC SPCA lottery will feature prizes totalling $100,000.

“The lottery is a great way to help the BC SPCA care for the nearly 34,000 animals we rescue each year,” said Farrah Rooney, the BC SPCA’s manager of fundraising events.

“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 prizes throughout May for $2,500 cash prizes, with a larger prize of $5,000 awarded each Friday and a special Mother’s Day prize on May 13 worth $10,000.

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

To order tickets, call 604-205-5998 (toll free at 1-855-205-5998) or request your tickets or order form online at spca.bc.ca/lottery.

Ticket purchasers must be 19 years of age or older and tickets can only be sold in B.C.
