The BC SPCA works to protect and enhance the quality of life for farmed animals in B.C. One way we work towards a better future for farmed animals is by advocating for higher-welfare food.
For those who include animal products in their diet, we encourage consumers to choose products certified by an independent animal welfare assurance program. When certified options are not available, we help consumers understand how they can make informed decisions that still protect farmed animal welfare.
