Get a little more love
Who couldn’t use a little more unconditional love in their lives?
May is Adoption Awareness Month and there are thousands of wonderful animals in SPCA branches across the province who can’t wait to meet their new family.
“The animals we receive are beautiful, loving creatures who are in our care through no fault of their own – they are with us because their guardians couldn’t, or wouldn’t, provide for their needs,” says Lorie Chortyk, general manager of community relations for the BC SPCA.
“Unfortunately research shows that a very small percentage of pets acquired in B.C. come from shelters or rescue organizations and we’d really like to challenge people to think of the BC SPCA as their ‘first adoption option’ when thinking about bringing a new pet into their family.”
The BC SPCA rescues more than 32,000 animals each year and operates adoption centres in 35 communities across the province.
All animals adopted from the BC SPCA have health checks, vaccinations, temperament testing and are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. To view adoptable animals online visit spca.bc.ca/adopt or visit the SPCA branch nearest you (a list of branch locations is available at www.spca.bc.ca).
