If you missed it, it’s not too late to view the half-hour special on the BC SPCA produced by our media partner CTV. The special aired during the evening news hour on Monday, Sept. 5 and featured SPCA initiatives such as: Our SPCA Certified farm labeling program; a behind-the-scenes look at Wild ARC, the BC SPCA’s wildlife rehabilitation centre in Metchosin; our Drive for Lives programwhich transfers animals from areas with high pet overpopulation to shelters where they will have a greater chance for adoption; our Nanaimo Community Animal Centre – one of the new facilities in our Facilities and Services Development Plan; a “happy endings” update on some of the dogs seized from a Langley puppy mill earlier this year; a look at the important work of our cruelty investigations team; our summer camp youth programs and our new BC Pet Registry.
The special aired in advance of the Scotiabank & BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walks this weekend to highlight the urgent need to fund the BC SPCA’s work with abused, neglected and injured animals.
