To help make life better for the animals in our communities:
ID your pet. The SPCA reunites thousands of lost animals with their families every year. Many animals are never claimed, however, and must be adopted into new homes because they have no ID and their guardians can't be found. Make sure your pets have ID tags on their collar and a microchip or tattoo, and keep the information updated.
Wildlife is often injured as the result of human activity. Properly dispose of items that can potentially harm wild animals, such as household cleaners, plastic bags and cigarette butts. Better yet, switch to environmentally friendly cleaners and use fabric bags instead of plastic.
Volunteer at your local branch of the BC SPCA or humane society. The help volunteers provide makes a huge difference every day in the lives of shelter animals. You can help care for animals at a shelter or foster them in your own home. We couldn't care for the more than 34,000 animals we help each year without volunteers. Get involved.
Advocate for animal welfare issues such as puppy mills, feral cats, and many others by contacting your city council or community leaders to help effect change through regulatory bylaws. Visit our advocacy page for more information.
Make sure your pet is cared for in the event of your death. The BC SPCA's Pet Survivor Care Program offers a number of options to secure your faithful friend's future, from a free basic registration of your pet to ensure it is adopted into a new, loving home, to variably priced premium and custom plans that take into account every aspect of your pet's needs.
