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

 December 10, 2015

The BC SPCA is hoping caring animal lovers will rally this month to help raise the final donations needed to complete its new state-of-the-art Community Animal Centre in Nanaimo. Thanks to a generous matching pledge by a grateful adopter whose cat is an alumnus of the Nanaimo SPCA, only $14,108 is still needed to complete the $3.4 million facility, which is currently under construction on an 11.9-acre property on Westwood Road. The donor will match all pledges made before Dec. 31, 2015, to a total of $50,000.

The facility will replace the aging Nanaimo SPCA shelter, which has served the community for the past 40 years. The new Community Animal Centre incorporates the latest designs for animal health and welfare and will provide a safe haven for the region’s abused, homeless, neglected and injured animals. The centre will also serve as a resource for pet guardians through animal-related workshops and training and will serve as hub for transferring abused and neglected animals from other parts of Vancouver Island to SPCA shelters where they can receive emergency care and treatment.
