THE BRITISH COLUMBIA SOCIETY FOR THE PREVENTION OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS
Our mission: To protect and enhance the quality of life for domestic, farm and wild animals in B.C.

April 23, 2014 is Animal Abuse Prevention Day in British Columbia and the BC SPCA is hoping the province’s communities will rally around a great cause by taking action.
