About the BC SPCA
The British Columbia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (BC SPCA) is a registered, non-profit, animal welfare charity. Our mission is to protect and enhance the quality of life for domestic, farm and wild animals in British Columbia.
The BC SPCA is the only animal welfare organization in B.C. with the authority to enforce animal cruelty laws under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act (PCA Act). We are the largest animal welfare organization of our kind in North America and the largest animal sheltering society in the world. We have 43 locations across B.C. including:
- 36 branches which care for abused and homeless animals, until they are adopted into new homes (including two facilities with large animal barns)
- Three animal hospitals (Vancouver, Burnaby and Penticton)
- Two spay/neuter clinics (Kamloops and Prince George)
- Wild ARC, our wildlife rehabilitation centre in Metchosin
- A provincial call centre in Victoria
- Our provincial office in Vancouver, which oversees animal cruelty investigations, advocacy and education for youth and adults and other key activities across B.C.
We assist more than 118,917 animals in need every year and are funded by compassionate animal lovers who support our work and partner with us to protect and enhance the quality of life for domestic, farm and wild animals in B.C. See more stats at a glance.
We are committed to achieving the highest standards of transparency and accountability in all our activities. In order to maintain these high standards of accountability and to foster public confidence in the work of our organization, we undertake to provide the public with information on our governance, operations and financial position.
