The BC SPCA Quesnel Branch is closed indefinitely due to significant damage, including a roof collapse, caused to the building following a heavy rainfall. We apologize for the inconvenience – we are working to assess the damage and to determine our next steps. In the meantime, are working to provide services for animals who would otherwise be cared for at our facility.
Animals can be surrendered (if space is available) at one of our other SPCA locations. The closest SPCA shelters to Quesnel are Williams Lake (709 Bond Lake Road, Williams Lake. Tel. 250.392.2179), or our North Cariboo Branch in Prince George (4011 Landsdowne Road, Prince George. Tel. 250.562.5511). Be sure to call ahead to make sure space is available and to make arrangements with staff for the surrender. SPCA staff in Quesnel (250.992.722) are also working off-site – they are available to answer questions and to assist in finding the best solution for you. If you need help transferring your animal, we will do our best to help you.
