BC SPCA salutes its 4,000 volunteers during National Volunteer Week
April 3, 2013
They are the unsung heroes of B.C.’s most vulnerable animals – the 4,000 volunteers who help The B.C. Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (BC SPCA) care for nearly 29,000 abused, homeless, injured and neglected animals every year.
Our volunteers work tirelessly carrying out valuable tasks such as fostering animals, walking dogs, offering humane education programs for youth, cleaning cages and kennels, transporting sick and injured animals to veterinary appointments, helping with local fundraising events and speaking for animals at risk through advocacy programs.
“Volunteers provide vital expertise in our branches and facilities across the province,” says Craig Daniell, chief executive officer of the BC SPCA. “We couldn’t carry out our mission work without them.”
During Volunteer Appreciation Week April 21-27, we would like to offer our heartfelt thanks to the incredible volunteers who make a life-saving difference for animals each and every day.
The British Columbia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is a not-for-profit organization reliant on public donations. Our mission is to protect and enhance the quality of life for domestic, farm and wild animals in B.C.
