South Peace Cares

Learn more about BC SPCA

We are building a new and improved BC SPCA South Peace Community Animal Centre in Dawson Creek that will help care for and protect thousands of animals each year.

We are so close to meeting our goal of $2.7 million. This will enable us to replace the aging and inadequate shelter we currently have.

With continued help from the community, together we have already secured more than $2,575,000 including a very special gift of $800,000 from the Province of British Columbia and $400,000 from the City of Dawson Creek.

Your compassionate gift that makes animal welfare in the South Peace region a priority, will bring us one step closer to meeting that goal - to build a better future for animals in South Peace.

The animals need you to help open the doors. Please make a gift today!

The New South Peace Community Animal Centre

The new facility will be a critical hub for animal rescue in the South Peace region and will be a special place to strengthen the bond between animals and humans.

The 4,800-square-foot facility will be located in the eastern part of the city at 11418 Third Street.

It will incorporate modern designs to ensure the highest levels of health and welfare for animals. The centre will include nine spacious indoor-outdoor dog kennels, five large indoor-outdoor cat rooms, areas for small animals, designated space for temperament and behaviour assessments, specialized isolation areas for sick and injured animals, food preparation and laundry areas and office space for shelter, cruelty investigations and humane education staff.

The centre will also have a multi-purpose space that can be used for dog training, SPCA youth camps, workshops and other events for the community.

The current, aging facility, located at 637 114th Avenue, served 607 abused, neglected, abandoned and injured animals last year and we are excited to grow to better serve the South Peace community.

A New Hope for Animals

We were excited to unveil plans for the new South Peace Community Animal Centre in Dawson Creek on March 3.

We are extremely excited about the new centre and are grateful to the provincial government, the City of Dawson Creek and all the generous animal lovers who are helping us make this urgently needed facility a reality.

 We hope you'll help us reach the goal so we can give the abused and abandoned animals of the region the highest levels of health and welfare to start them on their happy new life!

Established in 1895, the British Columbia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is the largest animal welfare organization of its kind in North America.  We have 43 facilities across BC operated by more than 500 staff and 4,000 volunteers.  With operations funded almost entirely by the community, we care for tens of thousands of animals in need across BC each year. We are the only animal welfare organization in BC that has the authority to enforce laws relating to animal cruelty, and to recommend criminal charges. Not only do we stop immediate animal suffering, we also work to address the root causes of animal distress and eliminate future cruelty. Read more...
