Second Chance 2015

Niko was hit by a truck on a remote island in northern B.C. With his hip broken in multiple places, his future looked bleak...

When Niko arrived at the vet after a nine-hour ferry ride, he could barely move and they feared the worst.

Kind and generous supporters gave Niko a second chance! Will you give a second chance to other animals like Niko?

Matched! A Generosity of Second Chances

Thanks to some amazing and generous animal lovers the Eldon & Anne Foote Fund at the Edmonton Community Foundation matched $50,000 in donations to A Second Chance. And, inspired by the remarkable kindness of these animal lovers, Mrs. Gisela Waibel and the Eaglecom Foundation then put forward a further $25,000, which was also matched in donations to A Second Chance! Thank you!

 There are still many more animals who need your help so if you haven’t yet given please donate today.

Niko's Second Chance

Even after days in pain and the ferry ride, this handsome guy was still in good spirits," shares Jamey Morris, manager at the Prince Rupert BC SPCA branch.

It was immediately apparent to the vet in Prince Rupert that Niko needed a specialist.

Placed onto a flight, Niko was rushed to Vancouver where he was met by a team of vets at the BC SPCA Hospital...
