The BC SPCA has continued providing full services to animals throughout the pandemic, having been deemed an essential service by the provincial government during the COVID-19 pandemic. While some branches have now resumed normal public hours with social distancing and other protocols in place for public health and safety, others are still operating under a modified service model and are open to the public by appointment only for the processing of adoptions and the surrender of animals.
Please check for information about your local branch. Our veterinary facilities are open to the public and our animal protection officers continue to respond to complaints of animal cruelty and neglect, and to ensure that animals are removed from dangerous or violent situations. You can report animal cruelty by calling 1-855-622-7722.
