Our warrant area is the largest in the Province, extending north to Peachland, south to Osoyoos, East to Bridesville and West to Princeton. 

Yearly, on average, we investigate: - 1200 complaints, - field 16,000 telephone calls, - travel 140,000 kilometers and - care for 1,600 animals. In addition to all these tasks we provide temporary shelter and find permanent homes for abandoned and unwanted animals. We also respond to ambulance calls for injured animals throughout the warrant area. Also, we work to educate the community about cruelty prevention, responsible pet ownership and the importance of spaying or neutering your pet. 

The BC SPCA SOS has a pet cemetery, to the best of our knowledge, we are the only shelter in B.C. that offers that option. It is located on 2.2 Acres, just off White Lake Road and was opened in 1987 and currently has just over 300 beloved pets resting there. To learn more, we invite you to browse through the various links, or to visit us at 2200 Dartmouth Drive, Penticton.
