FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The BC SPCA is looking to free up some space for animals impacted by the current wildfires.

SPCA locations across the province are holding a half-price adoption promotion between July 20th to 30th to create space for displaced animals.

“Our goal is to create capacity for as many animals needing free temporary shelter as possible, while at the same time finding wonderful homes for the animals currently in our care,” says Lorie Chortyk, general manager of communications for the BC SPCA.

The BC SPCA is offering 50 per cent off adoptions fees for dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, rabbits, guinea pigs and other small animals.

“We encourage anyone who has been thinking about adopting a pet to take advantage of this promotion. You will not only be providing a loving home for a deserving animal in our care, but it will also help the BC SPCA’s emergency response for animals in crisis.”

Over 80 animals have received emergency boarding since the fires started.

Those interested in adopting a new furry best friend can visit the BC SPCA website.
