KAMLOOPS - A furry fundraising campaign launched this weekend.

With $1.2 million needed for a new B.C. SPCA animal centre in Kamloops, the organization has announced the start to a public fundraising campaign, according to a media release.

The society has plans to build a $4.8 million facility at 2815 Tranquille Rd. with $1.3 million coming from the provincial government.

“Not only will the centre provide urgently needed services for the city’s most vulnerable animals,” CEO Craig Daniell says in the release. “It will be a critical hub for animal cruelty investigations in the region and a resource centre to support pet guardians in the community.”

The organization is currently working with the city on a rezoning application for the site.
