2020 has been a challenging year for British Columbians. As the COVID pandemic spread throughout our communities bringing so much uncertainty, the BC SPCA wondered how we would be able to continue serving the thousands of vulnerable animals who urgently needed our help. Our organization was declared an essential service in March and we quickly adapted our programs and services to ensure that animals would receive the life-saving care they needed while keeping our staff, volunteers and members of the public safe.
We are overwhelmed with gratitude for the incredible support we received this year from animal lovers like you to ensure that, together, we could be there for abused, neglected and injured animals, and that we could expand services to struggling pet guardians who needed some extra support to care for their pets.
On behalf the BC SPCA, I offer our heart-felt thanks for your generosity and kindness in partnering with us to save animals and wish you and your loved ones a very happy and safe holiday season.
I invite you to view this short video that shows how your compassion and support made a life-changing difference in 2020.
