As the largest animal welfare organization of its kind in Canada, the BC SPCA leads the way in animal care and management.
We help more than 41,806 abandoned, abused, injured and homeless animals each year, and run preventative programs around the province to address the root causes of animal suffering.
Our work is evidence-based, using the best available scientific and professional knowledge about the welfare of all animals — pets, farm animals, research animals and animals in the wild.
The BC SPCA’s position statements represent our evidence-based views on important animal issues. We use these statements to educate and raise awareness to improve the lives of all animals.
Our professional resources are available for use in your work to improve the lives of animals. Here you will find publications, materials and other evidence-based resources on animal care and management.
These resources may be useful to:
- Animal sheltering organizations
- Academics and other professionals
- Wildlife and rodent control operators
The BC SPCA’s bi-annual Science & Policy newsletter provides updates on BC SPCA science and academic initiatives, animal policy, legislation and current events.
