Volunteer Programs


Fostering Program

The BC SPCA Foster Program benefits animals who have a good chance of adoption, but who are either too young, sick, injured, under socialized or emotionally stressed to survive in the shelter environment. Instead, animals are cared for and rehabilitated in a nurturing foster home. Healthy adult animals are also placed in foster care when space is limited in our shelters.

The BC SPCA is in need of foster homes for cats, dogs and small animals. Please contact your local branch to find out more about their specific needs, or alternatively, fill out the online application.

The results of your form will be forwarded to the BC SPCA Foster Program Coordinator in your area, and you should receive a follow-up phone call in a few weeks. Alternatively, you can also contact your local branch to find out more about foster volunteer opportunities.

*You must be 19 years of age or older to be a foster parent. Thank you in advance for your interest!
