While there are so many amazing reasons for adopting a senior dog, they continue to inspire us in countless ways. When Mika, the 14-year-old Beagle, came into our care as a stray in the summer of 2020, she was so friendly and laid back. However, her imminent need for weight loss was evident. We needed …

We don’t know for sure why this sweet Pug cross was found wandering the streets of Kelowna, but we’re sure glad Dog Control brought her to us.

This green-eyed beauty is Briar. This lovely stray had been living a rough outdoor life, as evidenced by her wounds, her fractured teeth and her level of dehydration. At five years old, she had also likely birthed more than one litter of kittens, adding to the pet overpopulation problem in the province. But Briar got …

As much as we love our foster volunteers, we also adore when they can’t help but fall in love with their fostered animals… and end up adopting them. When Cheri and her family began fostering a very young family of rats that were abandoned in the forest near the BC SPCA Williams Lake Community Animal …

When Maggie, a young adult tabby cat at the BC SPCA Cowichan Community Animal Centre, was first adopted and returned just a few days later, we knew there was a reason she came back to us—she hadn’t found her forever guardian. Then, along came Maureen. Since adopting Maggie in early 2020, they have been inseparable. …
