Casper & Smokey

Adopted July 18, 2021 from ,

For many of us, our family just doesn’t feel complete without a furry feline… or three. When Shi-anne’s human son was only four months old in July 2021, she and her partner decided they wanted him to grow up with his own kitty companion. So, Shi-anne went to search at the BC SPCA West Kootenay …


Adopted October 28, 2019 from

Finding the right comforting environment can do wonders for our animals’ well-being. Sadie, a sweet-tempered and friendly chocolate Labrador retriever, had been in and out of treatments for ongoing medical issues. She really needed a stable home with a loving guardian to help with her healing. Then one day in the summer of 2019, Katie …

When adopting a senior pet, we may expect them to be mellow and start to slow down. Well, this certainly wasn’t the case for Baloo, a sweet senior canine full of energy and so much love to give. When Kathleen met Baloo at the BC SPCA Kamloops Community Animal Centre in May 2022, she was …

On April 25, 2022, a good Samaritan called in a stray kitty who had been hanging around an elementary school. So emaciated he looked like a very old cat, the veterinarian estimated he was only about a year old. He was literally starving. Life had not been easy for poor Cheerio and during the time …

Meet Zayn. This gorgeous prince of a boy was freely roaming the outdoors when he was brought to us as part of a cruelty complaint on May 14, 2022. Like most felines who’ve survived a life in the outdoors, two-year-old Zayn had a couple of treatable but highly contagious conditions: an upper respiratory infection and …

When Boo first came into our care in the spring of 2022, we knew she had so much love to give to her future guardians. She was instantly affectionate towards us and certainly didn’t hide how she felt about head scratches. So, when Jenna and Jarryn were on the search for their very first feline …

Luna & Simon

Adopted June 16, 2021 from

Sometimes, even when we have a timeline in mind, life has its own plan. Nicole and her fiancé Aaron had agreed that they wouldn’t adopt cats until the fall of 2021, but then a couple months earlier she laid eyes on Luna and Simon, an incredibly adorable duo of kittens available at the BC SPCA …


Adopted March 22, 2021 from

One very stressed orange tabby was returned to the BC SPCA Kelowna Community Animal Centre on February 28, 2021. At that time, he was about eight years old and had lived most of his life in one home. But when his owners started to have a human family, Pekoe did not adjust very well. Pekoe …


Adopted April 3, 2022 from ,

On January 20, 2022, our Cruelty Investigations Department was called on to bring a two-year-old mother cat and her five one-week-old kittens into the BC SPCA Vancouver Community Animal Centre. As they were all healthy, they were moved together into one of our invaluable foster homes until they were old enough to be spayed or …

Ricardo and Pipka

Adopted February 11, 2022 from , ,

The journey to the perfect home for a companion animal isn’t always immediate, but sometimes the wait pays off. Such was the case for three-year-old Coonhound mix, Ricardo, and two-year-old Labrador Retriever mix, Pipka. It’s interesting how similar their paths had been. Ricardo first came through the doors of our BC SPCA East Kootenay Community …
