Our mission: To protect and enhance the quality of life for domestic, farm and wild animals in B.C.

 December 14, 2012

Charity Intelligence Canada has named the BC SPCA one of its top charities for 2012. The BC SPCA was one of 45 charities, and one of only two animal welfare organizations, selected in the top 2012 picks. Visit the Charity Intelligence review for details.

Charity Intelligence developed its system of monitoring and rating charities to help individuals make informed and intelligent choices to ensure their donations have the greatest impact.

The system promotes “performance-based giving” by assessing charities with criteria ranging from transparency and accountability to evaluation of program outcomes.

Charity Intelligence also benchmarks each charity to see how they compare with other similar non-profit organizations. An optimal charity, it says, is one whose operations are lean and efficient while its programs create positive impact and change. 

Earlier this year, the BC SPCA also received an A+ rating in MoneySense magazine in their annual rating of Canadian charities. For more information on other awards and accreditations that the BC SPCA has received, visit our awards page.

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.
