The BC SPCA is a non-profit organization that helps nearly 37,000 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. 

The BC SPCA is always in need of cash donations to help the thousands of animals that depend on us each day. Save a life, 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, and food for rabbits, birds and small animals.

The BC SPCA Vancouver Shelter has put together a "Wish List" that can be viewed and purchase here on

If you donate an item through Amazon, please let the Vancouver branch of the BC SPCA know so that we can properly acknowledge your contribution, by emailing your full name, address and item purchased to:
