Adoption Stories

Boots & Jimmy

Adopted March 23, 2013 from

Bonded pairs are always adopted together because they depend on each other for play, affection and to feel safe in new environments. It is generally more difficult to find homes for bonded animals because most families are just looking to adopt one pet. Tammy had her eye on one cat at the BC SPCA Shuswap …

Jasper

Jasper the cat
Adopted January 1, 2001 from

Adopting a pet means being prepared to take care of them for years and going through all the ups and downs in life together. Heather adopted Jasper from the BC SPCA North Cariboo District Branch in Prince George when she was attending university. Jasper was a kitten at that time and he’s turning 19-years-old in …

Pikachu

Pikachu the cockatiel
Adopted April 28, 2019 from

‘Pikachu, I choose you!’ This friendly two-year-old cockatiel with rosy cheeks didn’t have to wait long to find her forever home. She spent just five hours in SPCA care eating millet and enjoying gentle pats on the head from staff before Phyllis swooped in to adopt her. Phyllis had been frequently checking the SPCA website …

Bohdi

Adopted November 10, 2010 from

Adopting a pet is a lifelong commitment for our companion. As our pets grow older, there may be some new challenges that come with age. Laurie adopted Bohdi from the BC SPCA North Peace Branch back in 2010. He was just a puppy at the time—a dark, handsome and very frisky new playmate. As Bohdi …

Gunner Mason Comeau

Adopted February 28, 2019 from

When a dog has a tough upbringing, it takes a special adopter to welcome them into their home. Having been neglected in his previous home, Gunner understandably had some behavioural issues. However, we knew that with his charm, upbeat attitude and undeniably dashing looks, he would find his future guardians. After researching his situation and …

Hari-Bari

Adopted February 16, 2019 from

When introducing a new pet into our home, it’s vital to give them some time to adjust. This can feel discouraging at first, especially when we feel an instant connection with our new pet, but it is an essential part of them becoming comfortable in their new environment. For Lilianne, it had been a while …

Chloe

Adopted February 17, 2019 from

There are so many factors when it comes to looking to adopt a pet, but timing is very important. Once she committed to adopting a cat, Joanne knew that this cat would become a big part of the family. Therefore, the timing had to be right; then it was just a matter of finding the …

Oreo

Adopted August 12, 2018 from

Catfes are popping up in many cities, and are a wonderful way to not only interact and socialize with adoptable cats, but also provide a means of uniting these kitties with their future forever families. The Catfe Vancouver was a satellite adoption centre for the BC SPCA Vancouver Branch. In August 2018, Monika began her …

Slash

Adopted February 10, 2019 from

When we’re looking to adopt a pet, something we don’t automatically consider is whether they’ll love us right away too! Merle was looking to find that mutual connection about a year after losing her previous cat. She missed having that bond with a special feline in her life. Then, one day in February 2019 at …

Louis

Adopted January 21, 2019 from

Life has a habit of not always going to plan. When Sophia gained a newfound independence and started volunteering at the BC SPCA West Kootenay Community Animal Centre, she wasn’t expecting to invite a four-legged companion into her life so quickly—perhaps a cat, but certainly not a dog just yet. In late 2018, Louis, a …
