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.

Both of our matching gift challenges have now been met! Thank you everybody for your generous contributions. If you haven't had a chance to give yet please still do, as there are always more animals who desparately need a second chance!

New opportunity!Just like the generous supporters who've joined our A Second Chance campaign, longtime BC SPCA supporter Mrs. Gisela Waibel loved the idea of being able to help more animals.

She has pledged to match the next $5,000 in donations to our A Second Chance campaign.

Nov. 26th, 2013

All gifts given to our A Second Chance holiday campaign before December 31st up to a total of $40,000 will be matched dollar for dollar. That means that when you give $100, it turns into $200 to help the animals!

We’re so excited that thanks to the generosity of the Eldon & Anne Foote Fund at the Edmonton Community Foundation your gift will go twice as far in helping the animals.


The Happy Ending...


When Kent Kokoska shone his flashlight into the dumpster, the light reflected off of Chance’s eyes. Even though he was hunkered down beneath the garbage and barely visible, Kokoska could see that the cowering dog was shivering from the cold and terrified, but most importantly, he was still alive.

It was dark, cold and remote. Imagine lowering a ladder into a confined space to crawl through rotting garbage and decaying moose flesh?
