Yes, it's more than okay - it's very, very welcome!
Many generous children choose to collect donations for the animals in the form of funds, cat and dog toys and small animal supplies in lieu of their own birthday gifts.
Please note, the BC SPCA feeds Science Diet food exclusively to the cats and dogs in our care. Please encourage donations of this brand of food. We do welcome donations of other brands of food, which will be used to help animals through our pet food bank program for low-income pet guardians.
