Snow

Adopted August 31, 2020 from

Would that every stray cat in our province had a story with as happy an ending as Snowball’s. This lovely, senior boy was trapped in Alert Bay as part of a TNR (trap-neuter-return) program, aimed at addressing BC’s serious cat overpopulation problem, mainly among feral cats. But Snowball was not feral. Despite his obvious discomfort, …

Roxy

Adopted November 20, 2012 from

When adopting a furry companion, we must be prepared for the new and everlasting spotlight that will shine on them in the family structure. Not that we would have it any other way. This was certainly true for Amanda and her family when they were ready to commit to the sweetest puppy, Roxy, at the …

Bruno

Adopted March 20, 2009 from

When young Bruno was surrendered to the BC SPCA South Okanagan/Similkameen Branch back in early 2009, we knew just how much joy he would bring to the right guardian once they met him. Lucky for Bruno, Gary saw him as the perfect addition to his family. He was right. Bruno spent twelve happy years in …

Tia

Adopted September 23, 2017 from

Sometimes the first animal we set our eyes on to adopt simply doesn’t work out because there is another companion meant to be in our lives instead. When Christine set out to adopt a canine in September 2017, she had her sights set on a sweet dog at the BC SPCA Victoria Branch. However, this …

Toody

Adopted May 24, 2020 from

Toody was undeniably nervous and shy from the moment she was surrendered for the second time to the BC SPCA South Okanagan/Similkameen Branch in May 2019. Fortunately, she wasn’t in our care for long before she captured the heart of her forever guardian, Tammy, with her online photo. Tammy knew immediately that she could give …

Pongo

Adopted August 21, 2015 from

This shy, five-year-old Dalmation came into the BC SPCA Burnaby Branch on August 11, 2015 when he was surrendered to an animal protection officer as part of a cruelty complaint. There were signs that brave Pongo had always spent his life in an impoverished environment. He was skinny and very unsure of himself. But his sweet, …

Ramsey

Adopted July 21, 2020 from

All we want when we adopt a new animal is to make them feel as comfortable as possible in their new home. For particularly timid felines, this can certainly be a challenge. When Ramsey was found as a stray, abandoned by his previous owner and brought in to the BC SPCA Vancouver Branch in June …

Jasmine

Adopted August 29, 2019 from ,

Jasmine was already 10 years old and experiencing the early stages of kidney disease when she was surrendered to the BC SPCA Shuswap Branch in the spring of 2019. Though easily managed, her kidney needs along with her age appeared to be making her adoption an uneasy one. All we wanted was to find this …

Athena

Adopted July 11, 2014 from

This big, beautiful girl is a Cane Corso and her name is Athena. Athena and her buddy, a Great Dane, were surrendered to the BC SPCA South Okanagan/Similkameem Branch on July 3, 2014. Athena was two years old. The dogs were well loved in their previous life, but their owner was unable to find housing …

Weevil

Adopted August 21, 2019 from

Just six months old in August 2019, Weevil was surrendered to the BC SPCA Kelowna Branch because she made herself known as a notorious escape artist. Several days later, Tina came into the shelter to adopt a new feline friend. Aware of Weevil’s history, Tina was determined to make her the happiest kitty she could …
