About Our Rescue Group...
The Haida Gwaii Branch
of the BC SPCA is staffed entirely with volunteers. We do not have a shelter location and all of the animals available for adoption are housed at foster homes. (*Of course, arrangements can always be made for viewing animals, please let us know...!)
If you would like to provide a donation, become a volunteer or foster parent, or if you would like to adopt an animal, please contact us!
To protect and enhance the quality of life for domestic, farm and wild animals in British Columbia.
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.
