The BC SPCA Nanaimo & District Branch, in conjunction with the below mentioned veterinary clinics, seeks to find homes for kittens as soon as they are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, deflead and vet checked.

Kittens can be viewed at the vet clinics where they have been sent for their spay/neuter. After making a decision on a kitten, prospective adopters are asked to come to the BC SPCA Nanaimo Branch (2200 Labieux Rd, Nanaimo) to fill out an application. When approved, additional paper work will be required. Then, the kitten can be released to his or her new forever home.  

For availability and location of kittens, please contact us at 250-758-8444, Tuesday to Saturday between 2:00 pm and 5:00 pm.
