The Heroes Fund for Animal Protection supports emergency animal rescue, the investigation of animal cruelty cases, and bringing abusers to justice.
The Heroes Fund for Animal Protection supports the many heroes connected to our organization. Our Cruelty Investigations Department (CID) works under the authority of the provincial Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act to respond to the thousands of complaints of animal cruelty and neglect the BC SPCA receives each year. Our Special Provincial Constables work in communities across the province and when needed, seize and rescue animals from neglectful and abusive conditions such as puppy and kitten mills, animal fighting rings and hoarding. In many cases, animals are found dehydrated, starving, without shelter and in certain cases, they are found suffering from wounds that have been intentionally inflicted.
Supporting the Heroes Fund helps support the numerous resources required for this physically and emotionally demanding work. Staffed by professional officers as well as volunteers, they require equipment and supplies needed to investigate properties and remove animals from situations of abuse and neglect. The fund also supports the BC SPCA's ability to prosecute abusers ensuring they are brought to justice. The heroes are not only our CID team, but also the animals who survive unbelievable situations, find the strength to love and trust humans again, and go on to become loving members of new families.
