Adopted September 26, 2008 from

We’ll never know what fate Humphrey might have met if he had continued to live as a member of a pack of wild dogs. Luckily, this beautiful Brittany Spaniel mix found himself at the BC SPCA Nanaimo & District Branch on August 29, 2008. He was four months old, young enough potentially to become a good companion …

When Simba was found as a stray in June 2020, he wasn’t in the best shape. Despite having a wound on his leg that required medical attention, Simba did not let this dampen his spirit. After making every attempt to look for a previous owner, we came up empty handed. Once Simba was on the …

When adopting a feline companion, we must be acutely aware of how big an impact they will have on our lives. When Janet bonded with young Zoe in an unlikely way back in October 2001 at the BC SPCA Surrey Education & Adoption Centre, she soon discovered how important this tiny kitten would become. Janet …

Sometimes we can’t quite describe the connection we feel when we first meet our meow mate. We know they are meant to be in our lives, so we don’t even hesitate to sign the adoption papers. For Jim and Heather, there was no doubt in their minds that Cosmo was the cat for them. When …


Adopted December 7, 2016 from

When we first adopt a feline friend, it can take them a little while to come out of their shell. When Randy adopted Squanchy from the BC SPCA Burnaby Branch in December 2016, he wasn’t sure how to make him feel at home. However, it wasn’t long before Squanchy made himself the centre of Randy’s …

This green-eyed, grey tabby beauty is Elf. Elf was surrendered to the BC SPCA Kelowna Branch on August 14, 2009, when she was just over two years old. Her owner had become pregnant and could no longer keep her. Elf had not been spayed when she came to us. So she spent some time with one …


Adopted October 26, 2016 from

Young Frank came to the BC SPCA Vernon & District Branch on October 13, 2016. He had been a stray in the care of a cat rescue organization in Langley. He was only with us a week when a couple walked in and took to him right away. The feeling was mutual and Frank was …


Adopted January 29, 2010 from

We don’t know the history of this beautiful kitty, Camille, before she was adopted on January 29, 2010, but this much is certain: she was a gem, as you’ll discover in reading this story we received recently from her forever family. I walked into the cat room one chilly day and a little female came …

At our 44 BC SPCA animal shelters across the province, our adoption counsellors give a lot of consideration to making the right match between a human and an animal companion in our care. But sometimes, a magic connection just happens without our involvement. And that’s what happened the moment Buddy and a particular human made …

Would that every stray cat in our province had a story with as happy an ending as Snowball’s. This lovely, senior boy was trapped in Alert Bay as part of a TNR (trap-neuter-return) program, aimed at addressing BC’s serious cat overpopulation problem, mainly among feral cats. But Snowball was not feral. Despite his obvious discomfort, …
