Welcome and thank you!
Your generous gift is already hard at work helping animals. Here are just a few ways you are giving hope and creating happy endings for animals in B.C.
Cedric was starving and near death when he was rescued from a cruel and neglectful home by BC SPCA special constables. Literally just skin and bones, Cedric would shiver with cold because he didn’t have any fat on his body at all. It was even hard for him to lie down because it was so uncomfortable.
With help from generous friends like you, Cedric’s foster mom began feeding him around the clock – a little bit at a time, at first. After a special surgery to remove a foreign object from Cedric’s gut, which was making it hard for him to eat or gain any weight, Cedric’s health began to improve.
One day two nice humans met Cedric at the vet. They believed they were meant to be his guardians, and applied to adopt him right away. Thanks to friends like you, Cedric is now a happy, healthy and very handsome guy who absolutely adores his loving guardians.
2018 wildfire support
This August, a provincial state of emergency was declared due to wildfires. Friends like you stepped up to keep animals safe! We were able to evacuate BC SPCA branches in Quesnel, Williams Lake and Cranbrook (East Kootenay Branch). Plus, we opened an Emergency Animal Shelter for dogs in a Prince George warehouse.
You helped us house and feed as many as 68 dogs at a time, and provide much-needed medical care and treatment. Not to mention the immeasurable relief you gave evacuated families! Because of you they knew their animals would be well cared for when they had nowhere else to take them.
Your generosity will ensure that we are ready for the next emergency – no matter when it happens!
Wild for wildlife
The BC SPCA’s Wild Animal Rehabilitation Centre (Wild ARC) recently celebrated its 20th year rescuing and rehabilitating wild animals on southern Vancouver Island and this past fall, Wild ARC marked another milestone, admitting its 40,000th wild patient!
Your support helps animals like Lady, Cowby and Piers, three orphaned baby river otters. “When Lady from Ladysmith, Cowby from Cowichan Bay and Piers from Piers Island arrived their eyes hadn’t even opened yet! But now, thanks to amazing supporters, all three of them will be released back into the wild this spring.” shared Dr. Sara Dubois, chief scientific officer.
Your passion for animals will help many more orphaned and injured wild animals like these baby otters.
