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 1, 2010

The BC SPCA has been receiving numerous calls and emails regarding the University of Victoria's pilot project to manage the growing population of abandoned rabbits on campus.

The BC SPCA does not support a cull on the rabbit population and urges the University of Victoria to seek every humane alternative to managing the rabbit population on campus.  However, if the university has to consider a cull after all non-lethal methods have been exhausted the BC SPCA wants to ensure that there is veterinary oversight and that methods are humane.

For more information please read the BC SPCA's position statement on feral rabbits or news updates posted on May 14 and June 30.

You can help the BC SPCA continue to advocate for higher standards of animal welfare. Please donate to the BC SPCA's Monty Fund for Community Education & Outreach today. 

 

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.
