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).
