Changing lives, one ticket at a time

The Ontario SPCA is a registered charity that does not receive annual government funding. We depend on generous supporters to change the lives of vulnerable animals. The Draws for Paws 50/50 Lottery puts the fun in fundraising! It’s a new way for us to raise the necessary funds to provide urgently needed care and shelter for homeless animals at our 13 animal centres, and support animals in communities across Ontario through mobile spay/neuter programs, animal transfers, pet food distribution and humane education.

Best of all, it’s easy to get involved. Tickets are purchased online at That’s it! It’s easier than convincing your dog that his game of fetch is over and it’s time to come inside.

You’ll get the excitement that comes with the chance of winning a BIG cash prize, plus you’ll feel good knowing your ticket purchase will change the lives of animals in your community.

A note from the last lottery’s winner

Joanne and her 13-year-old brown tabby Twil were the winners of a woofing $63,235 as the result of our first ever 50/50 Lottery in November 2022.

Joanne has been a cat parent her whole life and has been a donor/supporter of the Ontario SPCA for quite some time! She was very excited as this was her first time ever winning a prize.

“My favourite thing about my cat is that he seems to always say ‘I go where you go, Jo’ and is always with me…not on my lap, but always near me,” she says. “I have always loved cats and have had them my whole life.”
