Adopted December 7, 2016 from

When we first adopt a feline friend, it can take them a little while to come out of their shell. When Randy adopted Squanchy from the BC SPCA Burnaby Branch in December 2016, he wasn’t sure how to make him feel at home. However, it wasn’t long before Squanchy made himself the centre of Randy’s …


Adopted October 24, 2009 from

This green-eyed, grey tabby beauty is Elf. Elf was surrendered to the BC SPCA Kelowna Branch on August 14, 2009, when she was just over two years old. Her owner had become pregnant and could no longer keep her. Elf had not been spayed when she came to us. So she spent some time with one …


Adopted October 26, 2016

Young Frank came to the BC SPCA Vernon & District Branch on October 13, 2016. He had been a stray in the care of a cat rescue organization in Langley. He was only with us a week when a couple walked in and took to him right away. The feeling was mutual and Frank was …


Adopted January 29, 2010 from

We don’t know the history of this beautiful kitty, Camille, before she was adopted on January 29, 2010, but this much is certain: she was a gem, as you’ll discover in reading this story we received recently from her forever family. I walked into the cat room one chilly day and a little female came …

At our 44 BC SPCA animal shelters across the province, our adoption counsellors give a lot of consideration to making the right match between a human and an animal companion in our care. But sometimes, a magic connection just happens without our involvement. And that’s what happened the moment Buddy and a particular human made …

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, …


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 …


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 …


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 …


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 …
