Pet lovers have the perfect opportunity to adopt a new four-legged friend this week!

To help free up space in animal shelters, the BC SPCA is offering 50% off all adoption fees across the province.

“Many of our shelters are very full right now with animals seized or surrendered in large-scale investigations and our goal is to create capacity for these animals, while at the same time finding wonderful homes for the pets currently in our care,” says Lorie Chortyk, general manager of communications for the BC SPCA.

The half-price adoption event will take place from September 27th to October 6th at all 36 BC SPCA locations.

“We are offering 50% off adoption fees for all companion animals – dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, rabbits and small animals, as well as for farm animals (with the exception of horses),” said Chortyk.

“We encourage anyone who has been thinking about adopting a pet to take advantage of this promotion. You will not only be providing a loving home for a deserving animal, but it will also allow us to create capacity for abused and neglected animals who urgently need our help.”
