Welcome to the BC SPCA Port Coquitlam Education & Adoption Centre website. Each year our branch helps hundreds of animals find new homes. The British Columbia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (BC SPCA) is a not-for-profit organization reliant on donations from the public. 

Please note that our facility does not provide animal control services (such as lost, found or surrendered animals); please visit our about page for information regarding animal services. We appreciate your support, and thank you for making the BC SPCA your first adoption option! 

If you witness animal cruelty or neglect, please report it by calling our toll-free Animal Cruelty Hotline at 1-855-6BC-SPCA (622-7722).

The BC SPCA is a non-profit organization that helps nearly 29,000 injured, abused and homeless animals each year and relies almost solely on generous donations from its supports. You can help the animals by supplying any of the items listed on our Centre's Wish List. The BC SPCA is also in need of cash donations to help the thousands of animals that depend on us each day.
