Services and programs

Share:

The BC SPCA Victoria Branch offers the following services and programs to animals and pet guardians in our community.

 

Injured animals

The BC SPCA Victoria Branch will pick-up homeless cats and dogs, as well as wildlife, that are injured after hours. We encourage you to contain the animal, but only if it is safe to do so. Please contact us during regular business or after-hours.

 

Humane education

BC SPCA Victoria Branch Humane Educators are available to speak to your classroom, scouting/guiding group or other community gathering.

The BC SPCA has developed Bite Free - an award-winning program that teaches kids how to be safe around dogs. By knowing the signals dogs communicate to express emotions and by recognizing how humans evoke responses to dogs, students will to be safer and more confident around dogs.

Kindness Counts is a primary-level unit with an emphasis on developing empathy skills, exploring similarities ad differences between humans and animals.

Companions for Life is an intermediate-level unit which focuses on responsible animal care and how that relates to our attitudes towards, and treatment of animals.

Units generally run about 30 minutes, but can be tailored to suit the group. Or if you'd like us to come to your workplace or community group, we offer presentations on topics such as our upcoming fund raisers and the emotional, yet popular success stories.

In 2008, we went to more than 20 groups, reaching out to almost 300 children in Greater Victoria. To book a presentation or for more information, please call the shelter (250) 388-7722 or email us .
