More than 95% of the animals kept by Canadians are farm animals. In B.C. alone, more than 100 million animals are raised on farms each year. The BC SPCA works to improve the lives of these animals through many avenues, including the SPCA Certified program, advocacy for improved practices and evidence-based resources for a variety of audiences.
