SPCA Certified Inspection
By choosing SPCA Certified products, you help improve animal welfare and support local farmers who incur higher costs of production due to the high standards they provide. Since 2002, more than 1.5 million farm animals have been raised according to our rigorous science-based standards and have enjoyed the following benefits: egg-laying hens and pregnant sows are free from confining cages and gestation stalls, dairy cows have access to pasture and must not be tail-docked, animal environments are designed to promote natural behaviours, such as nest building, foraging and social interaction. In addition, the diet for all animals is free of antibiotics and hormone use is not permitted.
Emergency Vehicle Kit
Our Special Provincial Constables are on the road, alone, 365 days a year conducting cruelty investigations and rescuing animals in distress. In order for our constables to do their job safely, they require emergency equipment not only for the animals, but for themselves. They often find themselves on deserted logging roads, in blizzards, and attending calls where people are known to be violent.
Each year, the BC SPCA responds to more than 1,000 emergency after-hours calls. Last year, BC SPCA Special Provincial Constables rescued more than 1,800 animals in need of emergency care. Animals hit by cars, or injured in some other way are rescued at all hours of the night. Night emergency calls are particularly expensive - injured animals need to be taken to special 24-hour veterinary clinics.
Animal Ambassador Training
Many of our shelters offer BC SPCA summer camps. To date, our summer camp programs are in Comox, East Kootenay (Cranbrook), Kamloops, Kelowna, Nanaimo, Nelson, Quesnel, Trail, Victoria, Vancouver, West Vancouver, Surrey, Richmond, Abbotsford, Burnaby and Maple Ridge. At the BC SPCA summer camp, kids learn about responsible pet care, wildlife, farm animals, animal welfare issues and the environment. In most locations, the camps are a week long and involve crafts, games, guest speakers, and of course interaction with animals! Unfortunately, there are many kids in BC who would like to attend summer camp, but whose families can't afford the cost.
Hide, Perch & Go Box
BC SPCA Animal Welfare Staff recently developed a Hide, Perch & Go Box that helps to reduce stress in shelter cats. The box enables cats to exhibit their natural behaviours: hiding, perching and scenting. Upon adoption, the box can be transformed into a carrying unit. Our Animal Welfare Staff have been working hard trying to improve the lives of cats who stay in our shelters. Shelters are stressful environments for many animals, especially cats. When cats are scared they try to appear as small as possible and shrink and cower in the back on their kennels. A cat who is scared is less likely to be adopted into a loving home, and sadly, stress is a major cause of disease and mortality in shelter cats.
