Meet April, our curious little gerbil! April is bonded to her sister Deedee and they have to be adopted together.

Gerbils have a life span of three to four years. These animals are social creatures who like to live in groups. Keep pairs of males or females that have been raised together since birth. They are very clean, natural desert animals and their pee is a lot less stinky compared to other rodents. Gerbils are also known as Mongolian desert mice. Keep your rodent busy by providing an interesting habitat. Gerbils like to burrow so fill a 10 gallon or larger aquarium with wood shavings or CareFresh and add toilet paper and paper towel tubes for them to chew and/or run through. Plastic tubes, pieces of cardboard, cardboard egg cartons and anything else that is safe and fun for your rodent can also be added.

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.

Our Charter:

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.
