SPCA offering reduced adoption fees Oct. 13

Domestic animals will have the fees reduced by 50 per cent to encourage adoptions

The BC SPCA is hosting a Fall Head Over Tails In Love event Oct. 13, offering a reduced adoption fee across many branches.

Domestic animals, like dogs, cats, kittens, rats and rabbits will be eligible for 50 per cent off the adoption fee and pet registry fee. Discount rates for any farm animals will be decided on a case-by-case basis, says a press release. The discount will be honoured at branches across the province where adoptable animals are staying.

“Each one of our branches is committed to finding loving homes for these animals,” says Mark Takhar, BC SPCA’s chief operations officer. “Welcoming a rescued animal into your home can be an exciting time for everyone involved. Our top priority is to ensure that every animal finds their perfect people, so our usual matching process will still be in effect for this event.”

Takhar says the event will also allow the BC SPCA to help other animals. “When one animal heads finds their forever home, it gives us the opportunity to assist other animals who might be in need of care. We want to make sure no animal is left behind, and this event in particular – a groundbreaking one for the BC SPCA – will allow us to help other vulnerable animals throughout the province.”

Hill’s Pet Nutrition is partnering with the SPCA on the event, and general manager Jenn Porter says they are thrilled to help find homes for animals who deserve a second chance.
