Adoption Stories

Jasmine

Adopted August 29, 2019 from

When we want to adopt a new animal, it can be difficult to predict how they will fit in with our current pets. Sue and her partner knew they wanted to open their home to a sweet senior feline, Jasmine. They knew she needed some extra love and care because she had been diagnosed with …

Hera

Perky little one-year-old Hera was surrendered to the BC SPCA East Kootenay Branch on September 15, 2019, along with two other rats with whom she lived.

Fiona

Adopted May 30, 2017 from

Michelle’s children were very perceptive when they recognized that she needed a companion. Not just any company would do.

For Mother’s Day in 2017, Michelle’s children gifted her with Fiona, a loving senior kitizen who fell right into her lap. …

Vinny

Adopted October 5, 2019 from

High-energy dogs can definitely be a challenge. To those who are willing to put in the time, effort and patience, this challenge is undeniably worth every moment.

Bandit

Adopted January 2, 2019 from

Are you going to take me home? That must have been the expression that greeted Bandit’s new family when they saw him for the first time.

Patrick Stewart

Adopted December 4, 2018 from

When we receive new animals into our care, it can be difficult to gage their true personality. They are often frightened, confused, defensive or simply shy. Even though we try to make our animals as comfortable as possible, we know they do so much better when in a true home. This was exactly the case …

Kermit

Adopted October 31, 2018 from

Often animals with special needs get overlooked for adoption in favour of an animal that is perceived to be “normal”. However, special needs animals have a lot of love and personality to offer adopters. Thankfully, not everyone will overlook these diamonds in the rough. When Kelly learned about the special needs of Kermit, a sweet, …

Chico

Adopted August 24, 2019 from ,

This handsome Catahoula leopard dog mix was brought to the BC SPCA Williams Lake & District Branch on July 20, 2019, when someone discovered that he had been left behind in the backyard a rental unit. He was skinny and his teeth and ears needed attention. When he turned up at the shelter, he was very …

Billy and George

Adopted July 8, 2019 from

On the verge of retirement, Axel and Jasmin knew they wanted to make their family feel full. Like many, they were following the BC SPCA story of seizing 15 badly neglected Bichon Frise dogs from a breeder in the Fraser Valley in May 2019. One of these dogs, Annie, was very pregnant at the time …

Peaches

Adopted September 11, 2019 from

Not only are our pets a source of inspiration in our own lives, but they can also inspire us to help others. When Judy heard about the BC SPCA rescuing 45 Havanese dogs from a breeder on Vancouver Island, it broke her heart. A month later, she met Peaches, one of the Havanese dogs at …
