The Williams Lake & District Branch of the BC SPCA invites the public to an animal-themed day of fun on Saturday, May 14.  

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Williams Lake SPCA, 709 Bond Lake Road, Williams Lake.

In addition to featuring pets looking for loving homes, activities at the Williams Lake SPCA Open House will include an “ask a vet” booth, education booths, a scavenger hunt and a pooch paw painting. 

There will also be lunch served, a demonstration by the Canadian Cane Corso Association, a City of Williams Lake animal control officer information booth, and a silent auction and BC SPCA merchandise for sale. 

Hill’s Science Diet is partnering with BC SPCA branches across the province to promote adoption of homeless animals during Be Kind to Animals month in May.  “The open house series 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,” says Lorie Chortyk, general manager of community relations for the BC SPCA.  “We are extremely grateful to Hill’s for sponsoring this series to showcase the wonderful animals we have for adoption.

Hill’s donates free food for all dogs, cats, puppies and kittens in BC SPCA branches across the province to ensure that the animals receive a high quality and consistent pet food. 

The BC SPCA adopts more than 18,000 animals each year through its 37 branches. All animals adopted from the BC SPCA are vet-checked, vaccinated and altered (spayed or neutered), and assessed for temperament.
