The BC SPCA is holding a pay-as-you-can program called Little Creatures, Big Hearts to encourage the adoption of smaller animals.
The program is running from May 16th to May 31st.
“Some people visit their local SPCA looking for a dog or cat, but best friends come in all shapes and sizes, and we have so many interesting and wonderful animals looking for loving homes,” says Lorie Chortyk, general manager of communications for the BC SPCA.
“During our May small-animal promotion, we will be featuring rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, birds, gerbils, mice and rats and reptiles.”
Chortyk also mentions that their website, spca.bc.ca has many resources to help new owners understand how to help their “pint-sized pets live their best lives” and that “staff and volunteers are always happy to help with information and advice.”
She would like to remind potential new pet owners that cats, dogs, kittens, puppies, horses and other farm animals are not part of this promotion but are still available to adopt.
To adopt a new best friend, visit spca.bc.ca/adopt to see animals looking for their forever homes.
