Emergency website for SPCA
A new emergency medical website has been launched by the BC SPCA.
It will profile injured animals that are currently being cared for, and will allow donors to take action and become part of the animal’s treatment and rehabilitation.
The injured animals will be featured in stories as they undergo treatment, with updates on their recovery.
“The BC SPCA cares for more than 25,000 injured, abused and abandoned animals every year across the province,” says Shoni Field, director of fundraising operations and innovation for the BC SPCA.
“Many of the animals require extensive – and expensive – emergency medical care and treatment, often exceeding the funds available in a shelter’s regular medical budget. Our online site is a way for us to connect injured animals with compassionate individuals who help us save lives by donating to an animal’s care.”
This way donors will be able to see the difference their contributions are making.
“We are so grateful to the individuals who provide life-saving support for our province’s most vulnerable animals,” says Field.
“Our veterinary costs exceed $5 million a year and, as a not-for-profit organization, we simply could not do the work that we do without the generosity of individuals who reach out to give the wonderful animals in our care a second chance.”
