SPCA shelters across the province are offering adoption discounts

Fur babies ready to go

If you are looking for a fur baby to make your house a home, Saturday is your day.

SPCA shelters throughout the province are offering animal adoptions at a reduced rate.

Most of the animals in SPCA care, including dogs, cats, kittens, puppies, rats and guinea pigs, will be eligible for 50 per cent off the adoption fee and 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,” said 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.

“As a partner as well as the cat and dog food supplier for the BC SPCA through our Hill’s Food, Shelter & Love program, we are honoured to be a part of these magical moments where animals get to meet their new families,” said Jenn Porter, general manager of Hill’s Pet Nutrition Canada.

Christine Bradshaw, with the Vernon SPCA, said the local shelter does not have many animals ready to be adopted, but encourages future pet owners to contact other shelters that may have what they want.
