At any one time, our branch has dozens of animals in its care. By choosing to adopt from the BC SPCA you are choosing to give a homeless animal a second chance at a happy life.

All applicants are carefully screened to ensure our animals are placed in the best possible home. BC SPCA animals are matched with guardians based on their general lifestyle and the type of care they can provide. To some it may seem rigorous, but we want to ensure adopters understand the commitment they are embarking on. We try to place animals in permanent homes, so they don't end up back in our shelters. All adoptions require a completed application and an interview with a BC SPCA representative.

Visit our adoption information section for a list of frequently asked questions. Please note: all dogs, cats and rabbits will be spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

Pet on the Net

We regularly feature homeless animals currently in our care, who are in need of a forever home. Check back often for new features, and updates on previous features.

Search for adoptable animals

We feature all available animals for adoption online with access to other locations throughout B.C. Please note that we do not transfer animals between branches for the purposes of facilitating an adoption.

Preparing for adoption

Choosing to care for an animal is a big decision. The following information is designed to help confirm that you are ready to bring an animal into your home and life:

BC SPCA cost of care 

The cost of animal adoption from BC SPCA branches may vary slightly in different regions; this is due to demand for animals, cost of care within the region, etc. The cost of a shelter cat or dog includes spay/neuter (or discount for the operation if it has not been done prior to adoption), a health guarantee, and vaccinations. In addition, it also includes other extras such as flea control, collars and leashes and more. To learn more, visit our main site for BC SPCA cost of care information. 

Adoption fees 

Fees subject to change without notice. All prices are subject to tax. All BC SPCA cat/kitten/dog/puppy adoptions come spayed/neutered and include a microchip, a six-week free trial with PetSecure, and a lifetime registration with the BC Pet Registry among other benefits.
