Give them a second chance

Many animals arrive in the worst possible shape: malnourished, injured and cowering in fear. They need a lot of care. Together we can get them ready to go to a loving new home for the holidays. Please give today, and share with your network!

BC SPCA Calendar Contest: Make your pet a star!

I know that many animals aren't as fortunate as mine are. That's why I want to help the BC SPCA, who care for more than 29,000 abused, abandoned and injured animals each year. They receive no provincial or federal government funding so it's only with our help that they can care for these animals and investigate animal cruelty throughout the province. Your donation will make a big difference. And I hope it will also help us win a spot in the BC SPCA 2014 calendar: a reminder that with our support other less fortunate animals will get a second chance to be as happy as mine! Thank you for your support.

Give and your gift will double!

Lucy Lemon is a Burnaby Shelter alumni. She required extensive surgery and twenty weeks of rehabilitation. Without donor support she never would have recovered to lead an active, pain-free life. With your gift to our Matching Gift Challenge you can help abused, abandoned and injured local animals like Lucy get the medical care they need. This year the Burnaby Branch will care for 1,200 abused, injured and abandoned animals from Burnaby and New Westminster. They will all get initial medical checks, most will require some follow up care, and a few will need extensive surgery and rehabilitation. The price tag for that care is $40,000, but we only need to raise half that because every dollar you donate will be matched! The first $20,000 in gifts made to the Burnaby Branch by July 15th 2013 will be matched dollar for dollar.

There is no better gift you can give an animal in need!

Chance got a second chance! Our Special Constable, Kent Kokoska, was attending another animal emergency in Cache Creek when he got a tip that Chance was trapped in a dumpster in a remote area an hour outside of Williams Lake, and had been there for several days. It was below freezing, and night was falling as he drove north. When he located the dumpster, all was silent and Kokoska feared the worst...

Your gift will double! Help cats stop multiplying.

“There are approximately 1,600 unowned, stray and free-roaming cats on Salt Spring”, says Sean Hogan, the local BC SPCA branch manager. "Some of these are in colonies of three to four dozen feral cats". Only about 8%, or 125 of these cats are able to be rescued, rehabilitated and adopted each year at the Salt Spring branch. "Those are the lucky ones, most homeless cats face untimely ends full of pain and distress, often leaving behind scores of kittens who repeat the cycle,” explains Hogan. When you donate, your gift will be matched dollar for dollar and fund a three to five year program that will help solve this crisis. Meeting the goal of $50,000, which will be matched dollar for dollar, will not only rescue and rehabilitate cats in immediate distress, but also create the Salt Spring Spay Neuter Intervention Program (SSSNIP) that will address the root causes of animal distress and eliminate future suffering.
