Protection for farm animals
When people think of animal protection in B.C. they usually think of companion animls. But the BC SPCA also promotes the welfare of B.C.'s 20 million farm animals through livestock inspections, lobbying for improved codes of practice, educational farm tours for students, and SPCA Certified, a labeling program that identify food products which have been raised according high animal welfare standards established by the BC SPCA.
The BC SPCA rescues more than 2,500 deer, birds and other wildlife every year through its shelters and through Wild ARC, the BC SPCA's Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre located in Metchosin on Vancouver Island.
Through its SPCA Kids Club, youth magazine - Bark! magazine, school presentations, curriculum development, summer camps, youth workshops, and website resources, the BC SPCA encourages thousands of young people to treat animals with compassion and respect, while empowering youth to be ambassadors of the BC SPCA's mission.
Reducing pet overpopulation
The BC SPCA works to reduce the suffering of surplus animals in B.C. through pre-adoption spay/neuter programs in shelters, spay/neuter assistance for low-income pet guardians, partnerships with First Nations communities and spay/neuter education campaigns. The BC SPCA carries out nearly 12,000 low-cost spay/neuter operations a year through community grant programs and through its Spay/Neuter Clinics in Prince George and Kamloops and its animal hospitals in Vancouver and Penticton.
