Our mission: To protect and enhance the quality of life for domestic, farm and wild animals in B.C.

Advocacy Initiatives

The BC SPCA actively advocates on behalf of the 2 million cats and dogs owned in British Columbia, as well as the countless other domesticated animals such as free-roaming cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and gerbils. Our initiatives involve pressing for evidence-based changes to provincial and municipal laws, increasing public awareness about companion animal welfare issues, and promoting individual actions that lead to improved animal welfare.
