Adopted May 12, 2015 from

On May 12, 2012, five-month-old Great Pyrenees, Bella was re-homed after being rescued from a situation of neglect. This gentle giant became a beloved and faithful member of the marvellous family who remember her here: “We always love having two dogs and when we found ourselves a one-dog family after our other dog passed away …

On January 24, 2024, after six years in his second home, Moka was surrendered because he had been peeing outside the litter box despite several visits to the vet for urinary checks. When a cat develops what we might see as a “behaviour problem,” sometimes the problem lies beyond the physical issue—our animal companion may be …


Adopted February 28, 2024 from

Sweet Nibbs was surrendered to the BC SPCA at about one year of age because her owner could no longer care for her. Her caring owner brought her to us, where she would be spayed, vaccinated and treated for an infection and parasites and have a chance at finding a forever home. A lovely young …

There are occasions when it takes a lot of perseverance to find the right guardian for an adoptable animal. For Archie, the third time’s a charm. After being surrendered, again, to the BC SPCA Victoria Community Animal Centre in late 2022, we hoped that Archie’s next adopter would be his match. This handsome tabby had so much …

Sometimes a newly adopted animal fits so seamlessly into their new home that it feels like it was always meant to be. When Kalin and his partner were searching for a feline companion to join their family, they met Apollo at the BC SPCA Cowichan Community Animal Centre in February 2024. Sweet, young Apollo was …

The Meowdalorian

Adopted December 5, 2022 from , ,

Beware, here comes a very “sloppy” love story. It’s the story of one VERY affectionate, year-old Tortoiseshell who came through three shelters before arriving on November 23, 2022 at the BC SPCA Vancouver Community Animal Centre. There she found a couple who could handle all the love and sweetness she had to give. The Meowdalorian, as …


Adopted February 22, 2024 from ,

This precious face belongs to Angie. She is a mix of German Shepherd and Labrador Retriever who came to our BC SPCA Salt Spring Island Community Animal Centre on February 8, 2024 at five months of age. Angie’s story is a pretty ideal example of a surrender and rehoming. She was taken in by her …

Tux and Mokers

Adopted February 22, 2024 from

Tux (the black and white male) and Mokers (the brown and white tabby female) were two of five two-day-old strays who came to the BC SPCA Cowichan Community Animal Centre with their mom on December 19, 2023. Momma herself was only two years old and would have surely continued to give birth to many more …


Adopted January 23, 2024 from

On November 18, 2023, this charming fella was surrendered to us by his owner on the grounds that he was too much responsibility. At a year and a half of age, he had not been neutered, had untended skin, ear and eye irritations and was friendly but unsocialized. Ozzy went into a foster home while …
