VANCOUVER, B.C. – The BC SPCA is once again offering half price on adoption fees until October 6th.

The half price promotion will hopefully free up some space at local shelters for incoming animals.

“Many of our shelters are very full right now with animals seized or surrendered in large-scale investigations, and our goal is to create capacity for these animals while at the same time finding wonderful homes for the pets currently in our care,” says Lorie Chortyk, general manager of communications for the BC SPCA.

“We are offering 50 per cent off adoption fees for all companion animals – dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, rabbits and small animals, as well as for farm animals (with the exception of horses). 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, but it will also allow us to create capacity for abused and neglected animals who urgently need our help.”

Anyone interested in adopting a new furry friend can visit the BC SPCA website and view the animals currently looking for homes. There are online instructions for the adoption process.

Previously in July, the BC SPCA also held half price adoption fees to make space for animals that had been displaced from the wildfires.

The promotion is running from September 27th to October 6th.
