Losing a feline friend is devastating. When they’re gone, our daily life can feel hollow. When Daphne lost her cat companion, she undoubtedly felt a missing piece in her life and her heart.

These two healthy little darlings were surrendered to the BC SPCA Cowichan Community Animal Centre on August 3, 2023 as an unwanted litter.

Tiny, one-week-old Pearl and her siblings and …

When we make a match between one of our shelter animals and a family, we aim to give each animal a forever home where it can thrive. And that’s just what happened when a lovely couple walked into the BC SPCA Cowichan Community Animal Centre many years ago.  Read on for the lovely story of …

Sizeable Suzie

Adopted August 14, 2023 from

With a supportive environment and loving care, the impact we can make on our animals’ lives is huge. When Suzie was found as a stray and brought into the BC SPCA Cowichan Community Animal Centre in July 2023, she clearly needed a helping hand to get back on track. She deserved guardians who would be …


Adopted April 1, 2017 from

When Ivar was found as a stray and came to the BC SPCA South Okanagan/Similkameen Community Animal Centre in June 2017, we didn’t know much about him. Well, except for one thing: this boy had boundless energy. After getting to know Ivar, we discovered how much he loved to adventure, jump and howl. His new …

When we give our animals the stability, trust and loving environment they need, that’s when they truly flourish. When Guy adopted Nova from the BC SPCA Kelowna Community Animal Centre in December 2023, he heard some stories about Nova’s past, which indicated she didn’t exactly thrive in her previous situation. Nevertheless, Guy only saw the …
