Behind the scenes of the Victoria Havanese dog rescue

April 18, 2018

The 45 Victoria Havanese dogs were living in tragic conditions and we are so thankful that someone took a moment to call the BC SPCA Cruelty Hotline to report their concerns. This led to an animal protection officer investigating the property and negotiating to have the dogs quickly surrendered into shelter care.

The hotline, the investigation and the army of people that came together that day – none of it would have been possible without supporters that care.

100% of animal cruelty investigations are funded by the public, by you. There are many ways to support, but we hope you will consider buying a BC SPCA Lottery ticket for animals in need. 

I want to help

These dogs have finally had their luck change for the better and there are so many more waiting to be found. Get your ticket today, because when you play, the animals always win.

Know your limit play within it. 19+


The dogs are receiving on-going care and medical attention in our shelters and are not up for adoption at this time. Please check our website at for updates.
