Smudge is looking for a forever home that will help him overcome his shyness and learn that humans are good and can be trusted.
From Foster Parent:
Smudge is an energetic, curious, snuggly rat who is in need of a loving rat-savvy person. He makes elaborate tunnels with his towels to stash food for later consumption. When he hears my voice, he pokes out his tiny grey-brown velvet nose to investigate; when held, he wants to explore, returning to home base for reassurance. While a little bit fearful in general, he's completely unafraid of my cat (who would like to eat him), and I imagine he could be friends with a gentle child or dog. He grooms me, hides in my top, gently takes food from my fingers, and falls asleep when I stroke his head. Smudge is a little darling who will make a loving companion.

About BC SPCA - Vancouver Branch

About Our Shelter...

Our Mission:

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 36 branches located around BC and its provincial office in Vancouver, the BC SPCA provides a wide range of services for more than 53,000 homeless, abused, and abandoned animals around the province. The BC SPCA was created under the auspices of the provincial Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, and is the only animal welfare organization in BC which has the authority to enforce laws relating to animal cruelty and to prepare cases for Crown Counsel for the prosecution of individuals who inflict suffering on animals.

Our Charter:

The BC SPCA Charter is the foundation that guides the work we do:

Whereas:

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.

Therefore:

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.
