In 2017 the BC SPCA helped a total of 48,946 companion, farm and wild animals, including 22,659 animals rescued from dangerous, abusive and neglectful situations. With your help, tens of thousands of animals received emergency care and shelter and were adopted into new homes where they are now safe and loved.
If you see an animal in distress, please call our provincial toll-free hotline (1-855-622-7722). Your support also funds advocacy and education initiatives to help us create a world where every animal lives free from pain, free and suffering. Thank you for your dedication and compassion!
