The BC SPCA Community Animal Spay/Neuter Grant is a funding competition that helps communities working to systematically address community cat population growth and support remote communities through increased access to spay and neuter in British Columbia.
The grants are available to registered animal charities and non-profits, municipalities, veterinarians, and First Nation’s governments.
We fund the following types of projects:
- Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR): Free Roaming Cats, defined as intact neighborhood or community-fed cats, abandoned cats, unfriendly or feral cats living in colonies, where there are one or more caretakers.
- Cats on First Nation land: Owned and unowned cats that are cared for by owners/guardians in a First Nation community.
- Dogs on First Nation land: Owned and unowned dogs that are cared for by owners/guardians in a First Nation community. This portion of the program is open to First Nation governments only.
Applications for 2022 are now closed.
Please check back later in the year to apply for 2023 projects. Completed forms and documents can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. The anticipated deadline for applications will be December, 2022. Please see below for the forms that were used last year.
