The Swift Current SPCA will be running a new fundraiser on Friday April 21, as “Cinema SPCA” makes its debut. The family-friendly evening is built around a pizza/pasta buffet from Boston Pizza and a movie about a dog’s loyalty called “Hachi: A Dog’s Tale”.


“We wanted to try something new this year which would be fun for everyone and also really speak to how pets impact our lives, “ notes SPCA  Development Officer Teresa Cole. “The evening is a fundraiser to help homeless pets in our area but I think we often forget that pet adoptions can benefit the people who adopt as much as the animals and this movie really reminds us of that.” The film is rated PG and recommended for those 10 years and up.

The event will run from 5:30pm to about 9:30pm on Friday April 21 at the Great Plains College gym and the ticket price of $30 or 4 tickets for $100 includes a pizza/pasta/salad and dessert buffet from BP’s and the movie. In addition, there will be a cash “mocktail” bar including ice cream floats and speciality mocktails, a popcorn and candy concession, sparkle tattoos for the kids and a silent auction.

Tickets for Cinema SPCA are available at Pharmasave. For more information on the event, contact Teresa Cole at 306-773-1292. 

The Swift Current SPCA is a local volunteer-directed registered charity which receives no provincial or federal funding, is not affiliated with nor funded by the Saskatchewan SPCA, and must raise more than 80% of its annual operating budget from the community each year. It serves approximately 250-300 domestic pets (cats and dogs) annually, providing 24/7 – 365 day a year shelter, food and care with a high standard of health safety. It also provides required medical services including a spay/neuter program, foster and adoption services, pound services for the City of Swift Current, and a lost and found registry and microchipping program to help reunite strays with owners. The SPCA has operated animal shelter services in Swift Current since 1973.
