We love it when people write to us many years after they have adopted an animal from the BC SPCA to tell us of their progress, or to honour the life of a companion animal. Such is the case with this letter from the guardians of Zoey, a beloved family member adopted from the BC SPCA …

When you wait for the right canine companion to come along, sometimes all it takes is one video to know a pup is meant to be yours. Luckily for Jax, Alberta had her eye on a Facebook live video posted by the BC SPCA Vancouver Branch in July 2018. Immediately, Alberta found Jax irresistible from …
