On August 26, 2018, three kittens were born to a momma cat who was in the care of one of the wonderful foster guardians for the BC SPCA Victoria Branch.

In early 2019, Ian and Chantel were ready to welcome another canine companion into their life.

Boots & Jimmy

Adopted March 23, 2013 from

Bonded pairs are always adopted together because they depend on each other for play, affection and to feel safe in new environments.

‘Pikachu, I choose you!’ This friendly two-year-old cockatiel with rosy cheeks didn’t have to wait long to find her forever home.

Adopting a pet is a lifelong commitment for our companion. As our pets grow older, there may be some new challenges that come with age. Laurie adopted Bohdi from the BC SPCA North Peace Branch back in 2010. He was just a puppy at the time—a dark, handsome and very frisky new playmate. As Bohdi …

Gunner Mason Comeau

Adopted February 28, 2019 from

When a dog has a tough upbringing, it takes a special adopter to welcome them into their home. Having been neglected in his previous home, Gunner understandably had some behavioural issues.

When introducing a new pet into our home, it’s vital to give them some time to adjust. This can feel discouraging at first, especially when we feel an instant connection with our new pet, but it is an essential part of them becoming comfortable in their new environment. For Lilianne, it had been a while …
