Adoption Stores presented by Royale

Leo

Adopted October 28, 2021 from

Any cat would have to be savvy, lucky and maybe a little bit tough to live to the age of two as a stray. And as an intact male, Leo here also would have also contributed to the province’s cat overpopulation problem. When Leo came into the BC SPCA Vernon Community Animal Centre on September …

Marley

Adopted June 9, 2017 from

We don’t know what circumstances led a previous owner to abandon their lovely three-year-old Labrador Retriever and her eight tiny pups. But we are grateful they were found and bought to the BC SPCA Shuswap Community Animal Centre. On their intake on May 2, 2017, momma and her six-week-olds were quickly examined and then placed …

Freddi

Adopted October 9, 2021 from

Naturally, Melissa and Dan were heartbroken when unexpectedly losing their young cat to Feline Leukemia. After some time had passed, they were ready to start looking into adopting another furry sibling for their senior cat, Abbi. Then, as if he knew his future guardians were looking just for him, Freddi and his extra fingers made …

Loki

Adopted June 3, 2021 from

Building trust and comfort isn’t always a smooth journey for our animals, even once they are in their forever home. In the late spring of 2021, Loki was surrendered to the BC SPCA Burnaby Community Animal Centre for medical reasons. At 10 years old, he found himself looking for a fresh start. When Sharon met …

Aries

Adopted June 21, 2021 from ,

When one home doesn’t work out, it’s likely because our rescued animal’s forever home is just around the corner. At only six months old, Aries found herself surrendered to the BC SPCA Prince Rupert Community Animal Centre because her owner could no longer take care of her. It wasn’t long before we decided to transport …

Kai

Adopted September 2, 2021 from ,

When Kai was brutally attacked and brought into our care in the summer of 2021, we knew it would be a long road to recovery for him. We also knew that, being the absolute gentle giant sweetheart he is, he’d have no trouble finding his retirement home. Once he was well enough to be adopted, …

Hobbes

Adopted February 19, 2021 from ,

Cats are typically very sensitive and in tune with their surroundings. So, it’s only natural that their well-being can correlate with their environment. When Hobbes was discovered abandoned in harsh weather conditions in Prince Rupert, we knew he needed immediate medical attention. After a couple of months recuperating at the BC SPCA Prince Rupert Community …

Igor

Adopted June 24, 2021 from

In the spring of 2021, this five-year-old stray tabby found his way to a farm on the outskirts of Kamloops. Igor was emaciated, so the owner of the property showed him compassion and fattened him up a bit. It was six weeks after his appearance, and Igor wasn’t making any inroads with the resident barn …

Sidney

Adopted June 26, 2011 from

Nothing warms our hearts more than finding a family who is truly the perfect fit for our adoptable animals. Back in June 2011, Sidney had already been in our care at the BC SPCA Vancouver Community Animal Centre for some time. We couldn’t understand why no one had shown an interest in adopting him. Then, …

Daredevil

Adopted September 4, 2021 from

When Elizabeth and Karl met Daredevil at the BC SPCA Vernon Community Animal Centre in September 2021, it was true love at first sight. After spending only a day in her new home, Elizabeth couldn’t help but share an update with us about Daredevil—and we are so grateful: “We just adopted Daredevil and brought her …
