Animals at the Burnaby SPCA shelter can be adopted for a reduced fee for one-day only thanks to a new province-wide event.
The BC SPCA is teaming up with Hill’s Pet Nutrition on Saturday, Oct. 13, to present “Fall Head Over Tails in Love.” During this event, animals in the SPCA’s care can be adopted at a reduced fee. Domestic animals, like dogs, cats, kittens, rats and rabbits will be eligible for 50-per-cent off the adoption fee and pet registry fee. Discount rates for any farm animals will be decided on a case-by-case basis, said a BC SPCA news release. The discount will be honoured at branches across the province where adoptable animals are staying.
“Each one of our branches is committed to finding loving homes for these animals,” says Mark Takhar, BC SPCA’s chief operations officer. “Welcoming a rescued animal into your home can be an exciting time for everyone involved. Our top priority is to ensure that every animal finds their perfect people, so our usual matching process will still be in effect for this event.”
Takhar says the event will also allow the BC SPCA to help other animals.
“When one animal heads finds their forever home, it gives us the opportunity to assist other animals who might be in need of care. We want to make sure no animal is left behind, and this event in particular – a groundbreaking one for the BC SPCA – will allow us to help other vulnerable animals throughout the province.”
In 2017, the BC SPCA found families for more than 15,000 animals. To learn more about this event, visit spca.bc.ca/adoption-event.
