Millie and Charlie

Adopted September 8, 2018 from

For many of us, our home feels more whole with four-legged family members as a part of it. When Chelsea and her partner Dustin bought their new home in Mill Bay in 2018, they were ready to share it. Dustin already knew he adored cats, and it didn’t take long to get Chelsea onboard, too. …


Adopted December 7, 2018 from

When we welcome cats into our lives, one thing becomes particularly clear—their personality. Just like humans, every animal has an individual character of their own. We just have to spend some time with them to discover their traits. In fact, it was Nero’s nature that caught Tara’s attention right from the moment she stepped into …

Peaches and Pebbles

Two cute kids with Guinea Pigs
Adopted July 11, 2018 from

Guinea pigs make incredible companions—not only are they affectionate, intelligent and playful, but they’re so much fun to be around. They also love to have piggy companions of their own, so we did not want to split up this bonded pair of pigs. One day in July 2018, a woman named Natashia visited the BC …

Snowball (aka Precious)

Adopted September 8, 2018 from

When we know it’s a match made to be, we’ll do what it takes to make that “purrfect” companion become a part of our lives. When Rebecca and her family were looking for a new cat to join them, they came across Snowball (then known as Precious) on the BC SPCA’s website. From reading her …


Adopted September 22, 2006 from

Back in September of 2006, Safari was picked up as a stray and taken to the BC SPCA West Kootenay Community Animal Centre. A couple of weeks later, a woman named Mysti came into the branch, looking for a new friend to adopt and found that friend in Safari. Over the past 12 years, Safari …

Merida and Aslan

Adopted July 22, 2017 from

To many of us, a home simply feels more complete when we have our furry companions around. They’re not just pets—they are members of the family. Cat and her boyfriend Jay certainly feel this way about their two felines, Merida and Aslan. Adopted several months apart from each other, yet both from the BC SPCA …


Puppy Jethro happy tail of adoption
Adopted May 6, 2018 from

In early 2018, Judy knew she wanted to welcome a new dog into her life. Having recently lost her senior border collie, Judy was considering adopting an older dog, but that didn’t quite happen. In the spring, Judy met Jethro, a young American Eskimo border collie mix puppy at an adoption day held by the …


Adopted August 1, 2018 from

This bright-eyed little fellow is Edgar. Edgar was only four months old when he was brought in as a stray to the BC SPCA North Cariboo District Branch in July of 2018. Edgar went directly to stay with one of our foster families, while the veterinarians tried to get to the bottom of his head …


Adopted December 9, 2018 from

Sometimes it’s all about timing. After experiencing the heartbreak of losing her cat to a terminal illness, Amy wanted to open her home to another cat. Amy searched for weeks but didn’t find herself connecting with any of the cats she met at various shelters. Yet, she persevered, knowing there would be the purrfect companion …


Adopted October 22, 2018 from

When October the tuxedo cat was surrendered to the BC SPCA Burnaby Branch in the fall of 2018, not only did we notice her shy yet sweet personality, but also admired her elegant, long legs! Limbs aside, it appeared that once October learned to trust those showing her affection, she wasn’t afraid to give them …
