If you’re looking for a unique gift for the animal lover in your life, consider adopting a BC SPCA kennel in their name.
You can choose to sponsor a cat or dog kennel or activity space. Entering the unfamiliar shelter environment is stressful for any animal but staff work hard to make the transition as smooth as possible.
Cat kennels: Each cat kennel has separate rooms for their litter area and rest/play area to decrease stress. Cats have a specially designed hide perch and go box, which goes home with them when they are adopted. This provides the cats with a familiar and safe space to help them feel more comfortable as they adjust to life in their new homes.
Dog kennels: Each dog kennel is equipped with a sliding door to allow them to come out and visit with potential adopters but have the ability to retreat and take a break from the attention if needed. Each dog is given their own bed and taken for walks at least twice a day.
Activity spaces: These areas allow cats and dogs waiting for their forever homes to burn off excess energy. Activity spaces are a great place for staff to work on training dogs or socialize cats and provide play sessions. A happy and healthy animal will show their personality and have a greater chance of being adopted.
You can sponsor a kennel at any SPCA branch for up to three years. Make one of your new year’s resolutions a promise to help homeless animals in need.
The kennel will display a plaque with the name of that wonderful person along with a message that the kennel is being sponsored in their honour or memory. Each plaque will be seen by everyone who walks through the doors of the SPCA branch that is closest to your heart.
Your gift will help provide food, treats, toys and veterinary checkups and life-saving medical care for stray or injured animals. Animals make such a difference in our lives. Give back and make a difference in their lives – during a time when they need it the most.
