Gift in Kind Wishlist
The BC SPCA is a non-profit organization that helps nearly 40,000 injured, abused and homeless animals each year and relies almost solely on generous donations from its supporters.
You can help the animals by supplying any of the items listed below. We are also always in need of cash donations to help the thousands of animals that depend on us each day. Save a life, and make a cash donation to the BC SPCA today.
Donations of Cat and Dog Food
Hill's® Science Diet® donates all food for dogs and cats in all BC SPCA shelters.
With the nutritional needs of our dogs, cats, puppies and kittens now met through the Hill's Science Diet Second Chance for Love program, our shelters no longer require donations of regular dog and cat food.
However, we warmly welcome donations of Hill's® wet pet food for dogs and cats, Hill's® special diet and senior food, as well as food for rabbits, guinea pigs, birds and other small animals.
If you have something you would like to donate, please stop by our Centre during our regular hours. We regret that due to the limited staff and volunteers at the branch, we are unable to travel to pick up donated items. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us at 604-468-4044, email us at email@example.com or to stop by our Centre.
