The BC SPCA each year conducts countless cruelty to animals investigations. The number is absolutely staggering and embarrassing. We are the ones who need to stand up for the animals and fight the animal cruelty that exists in our community.
Help our furry friends and join tens of thousands of other supporters as they walk to raise the necessary funds to help animals in need.
