About Our Shelter:The BC SPCA is a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting and enhancing the quality of life for domestic, farm and wild animals in British Columbia. Through its locations and operations across the province the BC SPCA provides emergency medical care and sheltering for more than 37,000 animals each year. The society also conducts more than 4,600 cruelty investigations and provides a wide range of advocacy and education programs for domestic, farm and wild animals through its Provincial Office.
Our mission, vision and charter is at the heart of all we do to rescue, protect and care for animals. It is also the driving force behind our animal welfare and education programs.
The BC SPCA Charter is the foundation that guides the work we do:
The world is inhabited by many species sharing a common ecosystem of air, earth, and water. We recognize and value our interconnectedness with all animals.
The BC Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is dedicated to protecting and enhancing the quality of life for the animals of the world we share.
We pledge our energies to inspire and mobilize society to create a world in which all animals, who depend on humans for their well-being, experience, as a minimum, five essential freedoms:
1. Freedom from hunger and thirst
2. Freedom from pain, injury, and disease
3. Freedom from distress
4. Freedom from discomfort
5. Freedom to express behaviours that promote well-being.
Our Adoption Process:In April 2012, the Surrey SPCA had to leave its former home in the City of Surrey animal shelter after its kennelling contract with the city ended. But the BC SPCA has exciting new plans for the Surrey Branch at its new site at 16748 50th Avenue (between Highway 10 and 32nd Avenue).
The new centre is not open yet. We are renovating the buildings on the site and working on development plans for the new centre of excellence for animal welfare. (http://www.spca.bc.ca/branches/surrey/news/plans-for-new-bc-spca-centre.html)
