Adoption Stories

Cinder and Salem

Adopted July 27, 2019 from

Some things in life are just better in pairs—this includes cats, of course. Just eight weeks old in July 2019, Cinder and Salem were two beautiful black domestic short hair kittens waiting for their future guardians to come along to the BC SPCA Richmond Education & Adoption Centre. Lisa and her boyfriend couldn’t resist the …

Dumpling

Adopted January 13, 2008 from

When we connect with our animals, the bond can be instant and undeniable. This happened for Janelle when she first met Dumpling at the BC SPCA Richmond Education & Adoption Centre back in January 2008. Once she entered the cat room at the shelter, two confident cats were all over her, yet she couldn’t take …

Loki

Adopted November 1, 2019 from

On October 17, 2019, this handsome German Shepherd Husky mix was surrendered to the BC SPCA Kamloops & District Branch. His owner did not have the time to spend with Loki that he badly needed. Loki was described as friendly, cuddly and shy. Not yet five years old, this young fella also had an abundance …

Max & Mia

Adopted October 23, 2019 from

This pair of senior Shih Tzus was surrendered to us on October 11, 2019, as their owners were no longer able to care for them. Judging from the file of medical records that accompanied them, the two were well loved. They had all the signs of cherished companions: annual checkups, up-to-date vaccines, dental care and …

Bea

Adopted January 27, 2018 from

Bea came into our care at the BC SPCA Vancouver Branch as a stray in January 2018. Right away, Bea wasn’t afraid to show us just how affectionate and confident she was. We knew it wouldn’t be long before Bea claimed a family for herself. Only 11 days later, Katey and her partner arrived at …

Lucy

Adopted March 7, 2019 from

When we adopt a kitten, it’s important to remember that we will be responsible for entertaining them and playing with them; although, kittens also tend to provide us with endless entertainment in return! This is certainly the case for Janet and Doug with their young cat Lucy. Just a couple of months old when they …

Dwight

Adopted November 19, 2019 from

Dear Dwight went through a few homes before she found her forever people. This gorgeous, long-haired grey tabby showed up at our BC SPCA East Kootenay Branch shelter twice before she found her match. The first guardian could not find pet-friendly housing. The second surrendered her because she followed her feline instinct to chase wildlife, …

Harvey

Adopted March 2, 2019 from

As sensitive creatures, it can take some time and patience for cats to come out of their shell. Harvey was no exception. Having been a stray more than once in his life, it seems natural that Harvey was unsure of his future when he ended up at the BC SPCA Vancouver Branch in February 2019. …

Stella and Luna

Adopted January 20, 2019 from

When Tina lost her senior kitty Katie, she knew she wanted to open her home and her heart once again to another cat in need. She started her search for a younger adult cat, around three years of age, yet was pleasantly surprised in January 2019 when she met Stella and Luna (previously Bb and …

Rosie

Adopted February 18, 2019 from

Sometimes, an unforeseen life event causes a guardian to have to give up a beloved animal. When all other means of re-homing an animal are exhausted, they can end up in one of our shelters. Squid was surrendered to the BC SPCA Abbotsford Branch on February 12, 2019. This friendly, healthy, beautiful three-year-old grey tabby …
