Q - How much does it cost the BC SPCA to care for horses?

The BC SPCA's Cruelty Investigations Department is responsible for covering all expenses incurred related to the care of seized or rescued horses.

Costs may include food, veterinary care and boarding. Boarding fees for horses can range from as little as $5 per day to as much as $25 per day, depending on both the geographical location and season.

On average, it costs the BC SPCA $10 per day to support foster care for horses. However, horses that require veterinary care can result in thousands of dollars worth of medical treatment, depending on the condition of the horse.
