Is there a dog, a cat, or even a rat-shaped hole in your heart?
On Nov.9, the BC SPCA will have a province-wide adoption promotion that will include dogs, cats, kittens, puppies, rats and guinea pigs.
During the promotion British Columbians can adopt a furry new best friend at half the regular adoption price and half the BC Pet Registry fee. Adoption discounts for farm animals will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
“This adoption event was such a success last year that each of our 36 adoption facilities are eager to find loving homes for animals in our care,” says Mark Takhar, BC SPCA’s chief operations officer.
“Welcoming a rescued animal into your home is a rewarding experience for everyone involved. As always, our top priority is to ensure that every animal finds their perfect people, so our usual matching process will be in effect for this event.”
Takhar says the event is important to BC SPCA operations as the high rate of adoptions in one day allows the BC SPCA to care for additional vulnerable animals in the community.
You can view adoptable animals online, or visit your local branch.
In 2018, the BC SPCA found loving homes for over 14,000 animals. During the Fall Head Over Tails in Love event in 2018, a total of 212 animals were adopted representing 40 per cent of the animals in SPCA care at that time.
The SPCA also asks participants to snap an adoption selfie and tag @BCSPCA on social media to share the love.
