Adopted October 21, 2007 from

Back in 2007, Molly came into the BC SPCA Burnaby Branch. She had such a big heart and we knew she was going to give all of her love to the right family. When Linda entered the shelter in October that year, Molly felt the connection. She immediately made it her goal to win over …

Shadow and Betsy

Adopted November 1, 2017 from

Shadow and Betsy both waited a while to meet their purrfect potential adopter in the BC SPCA Port Coquitlam Branch, which has now been relocated and renamed to the BC SPCA Tri-Cities Education and Adoption Centre. While in our care, we would have described these two as different as chalk and cheese. Betsy, a sassy …

Zita & Jessie

Adopted August 8, 1995 from

Sometimes, pets and their guardians have the odds stacked against them. At least, that seemed to be the case for Zita, Jessie and their guardian Myriam when she moved to Canada and had to leave her beloved cats behind. Living on the other side of the world doesn’t always mean the end of a relationship …

When Sam, a gorgeous five-year-old border collie, came to the BC SPCA Kamloops Branch one day in October 2015, she proved the great importance of proper socialization. Having lived primarily outdoors for her whole life, Sam was very nervous around new people and in new situations. Fortunately, we learned that Sam loved people far too …

On March 5, 2010, this young Pit Bull Terrier Mix was found abandoned in a dump. A concerned citizen brought her into the BC SPCA Surrey Education & Adoption Centre. Underweight and frightened, Mindy had identification but she had not been spayed. Staff and volunteer assessments showed that, with human attention, she quickly warmed up …

On May 13, 2016, a one-year-old, stray Lynx Point Siamese, found in Williams Lake, was brought into the BC SPCA Sea to Sky Branch. She gave birth to a litter of five kittens of assorted colours and coat lengths. Olive was one of those kittens. Mom and babies were housed with one of our wonderful foster …

On April 3, 2018, a three-year-old, 44 kg purebred Dogo Argentino was surrendered to the BC SPCA Vernon Branch, as his family could no longer care for him. When he first came to the shelter, he was unsure and fearful. A professional behaviour assessment by staff determined this big, very powerful, protective canine needed a breed …


Adopted November 24, 2017 from

Between July and October of 2017, Claudia,  a 11-year-old, blue cream Torbie, had been shuffled from one home to another, with owners finding she was not a good fit for their household. She finally came into the care of the BC SPCA Victoria Branch on October 31, 2017. At our shelters, staff and volunteers work together …


Adopted April 18, 2013 from

When Bindi came into our care in early 2013 at the BC SPCA South Peace Branch in Dawson Creek, we knew she was going to make a special addition to the right family. She wasn’t afraid to show her personality right away—as long as it meant finding a lap she could curl up in. Bindi …


Adopted April 27, 2018 from

On April 4, 17-year-old Tiny was taken by her owner to a Nanaimo veterinary clinic to be euthanized because she had become too much responsibility. The clinic declined to euthanize this healthy senior and instead brought her to the BC SPCA Nanaimo & District Branch to give her a chance at adoption. Not long after, …
