very animal deserves their furry-tail ending! That’s why the BC SPCA is teaming up with Hill’s1 Pet Nutrition on Saturday, Oct. 13 to present “Fall Head Over Tails in Love.”
 

During this one-day event, animals in our care will be able to go to a loving home at a reduced fee. Domestic animals, like dogs, cats, kittens, rats and rabbits will be eligible for 50% off the adoption fee and pet registry fee. Discount rates for any farm animals will be decided on a case-by-case basis. 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.”


“As the cat and dog food supplier for the BC SPCA through our Hill’s Food, Shelter & Love® program, we are honoured to be a part of these families’ storybook endings,” says Jenn Porter, general manager of Hill’s® Pet Nutrition Canada. “We’re thrilled to help find more loving homes for animals who deserve a second chance.”


In 2017, the BC SPCA found loving families for more than 15,000 animals. The BC SPCA would love to be a part of your happily (fur)ever after adoption story, too! To learn more about this event, we invite you to visit spca.bc.ca/adoption-event for more details.



The BC SPCA is a non-profit organization funded primarily by public donations. Our mission is to prevent cruelty and to promote the welfare of animals through a wide range of services, including cruelty investigations, emergency rescue and treatment, sheltering and adoption of homeless and abused animals, humane education, advocacy, farm animal welfare, spay/neuter programs, and wildlife rescue and rehabilitation.
