Investigating reports of animal cruelty and seizing animals in distress is both rewarding and challenging. It’s a job that requires a unique set of skills and the right personality type.
The best way to find out if it’s the right job for you is to start by working in a BC SPCA animal centre to gain experience shadowing Animal Protection Officers and participate in initial investigations.
Currently, we employ 37 Animal Protection Officers throughout the province. Should an opening become available, the job opportunity will be posted on our website.
