Shelters tours at Chilliwack SPCA open house Saturday

The Annual Open House May 4 at Chilliwack SPCA will see half-price adoptions on all cats, kittens and rabbits

Kittens and rabbits are in focus at the open house event May 4 in support of the Chilliwack branch of the SPCA.

“We’re hoping for a great turnout,” said Chilliwack SPCA manager Ivanna Ferris.

It’s “kitten season” every spring so they typically have more kittens and cats than they know what to do with coming into the shelter, and look forward to showing off some of the animals seeking forever homes through adoption.

The Annual Open House of the Chilliwack SPCA will see half-price adoptions on all cats, kittens and rabbits, along with shelter tours, and educational displays.

There will also be a bake sale at the open house and a barbecue with refreshments.

“We’re also asking members of the community to help animals in need by dropping off urgently needed items for the shelter,” says Lorie Chortyk, general manager of community relations for the BC SPCA. “Wish list items include cans of Hill’s® brand wet cat and dog food, KONG™ dog toys, radios or CD players, patio umbrellas (to help shade the dogs when they are playing outside during the summer), cat toys and clumping cat litter. The Chilliwack Branch is also in need of a ride-on mower if anyone in the community is able to help with that need.

Chortyk says the BC SPCA is extremely grateful to Hill’s Canada for its continuing support.

“Hill’s is a champion of homeless animals, not only through their sponsorship of our Open House series, but in their ongoing support of the dogs and cats in our care,” said Chortyk. Hill’s donates free dry 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 Open House is Saturday, May 4 – 11 to 4 p.m.

at 6797 Hopedale Rd., Chilliwack.
