BC SPCA officials and community members gathered on Sept. 28 to celebrate the official opening of the new BC SPCA Sea to Sky Education & Adoption Centre.
The 2,000-square-foot facility includes three rooms for cats and kittens, a small-animal room, an exam room, office space for local animal protection officers and humane education staff as well as a community room for BC SPCA Kids Camps, birthday parties and animal-related workshops for youth and adults. The centre also has a small retail area for BC SPCA products.
“We are so delighted to have this new space to provide services to animals in the Sea to Sky corridor,” says Craig Daniell, chief executive officer of the BC SPCA. “In addition to providing shelter for abused, homeless, injured and neglected animals in the region, this new centre will enable us to expand our programming to help support the bond between pets and their guardians.”
The Education & Adoption Centre, located at 1005B Industrial Way in Squamish, is open from noon to 4 p.m. daily, except Wednesdays.
