‘Frisky felines’ and more at Surrey SPCA Open House and Adoption Fair

The event will be held at the BC SPCA Surrey Education and Adoption Centre, located at 16748 50th Ave.

The Surrey SPCA Open House and Adoption Fair is coming up.

SURREY — Thinking of getting a new furry family member?

Then you’ll want to check out the Surrey SPCA Open House and Adoption Fair, set for Sunday, Aug. 14 from 1 to 4 p.m.

BC SPCA director of regional operations Jane Talbot said it’s kitten season, so there’s plenty of “frisky felines looking for forever homes.”

But the day isn’t just about adoption. There will also be barn tours, face-painting, animal themed crafts as well as live music, refreshments and a barbecue featuring SPCA certified vegetarian products.

“It’ll be a lot of fun,” said Talbot. Come and enjoy a fair with a country feel and help us find much-needed homes for the furry creatures in our care.”

The event will be held at the BC SPCA Surrey Education and Adoption Centre, located at 16748 50th Ave, which is rather unique.

Talbot explains.

“(It’s) in a rural setting that features a horse barn and chicken coop, along with emergency housing for homeless cats and small animals, education space for animal-related community programs and the operations centre for our Lower Mainland animal protection officers who rescue animals from neglect and abuse,” she said.
