BC SPCA offering half-price adoptions to create shelter space for animals displaced by wildfires

If you’ve been thinking long and hard about adopting a new pet, now might be the perfect time to pull the trigger.

The BC SPCA is currently offering half-price adoptions in an effort to free up shelter space for emergency boarding of animals who are displaced by wildfires.

The promotion takes place from July 20-30.

“Our goal is to create capacity for as many animals needing free temporary shelter as possible, while at the same time finding wonderful homes for the animals currently in our care,” said Lorie Chortyk, GM of communications for the BC SPCA.

“We are offering 50% off adoption fees of all companion animals – dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, rabbits, guinea pigs and other small animals.”

The BC SPCA has provided free emergency boarding for more than 80 animals since during the current wildfire season and has set up an animal evacuation centre in Kamloops.

“We encourage anyone who has been thinking about adopting a pet to take advantage of this promotion,” Chortyk added.

“You will not only be providing a loving home for a deserving animal in our care, but it will also help the BC SPCA’s emergency response for animals in crisis.”
