The BC SPCA’s Sea-to-Sky and Vancouver Branches are temporarily unable to take in cats due to a contagious gastrointestinal illness. Affected cats and kittens generally have mild to moderate vomiting, diarrhea, and loss of appetite. In rare cases, animals who are already compromised by other health issues may be affected more severely. Sick cats have been responding well to symptomatic treatment and recovered cats are available for adoption to homes with no other cats.
We are working with shelter disease specialists to identify the cause of the illness and will reopen our cat areas for intake as soon as we are able.
If you have found a stray cat in the District of Squamish, please call the branch at (604) 898-9890. The staff will help support the cat through alternate arrangements and if needed temporary accommodations outside the shelter.
If you have questions about a pet cat displaying similar symptoms, please contact your veterinarian. We appreciate your patience during this temporary closure.
