B.C. SPCA launching Million Acts of Kindness Campaign

January 16, 2015 - 3:46 PM


KAMLOOPS - Every year, the B.C. SPCA cares for almost 37,000 homeless, abused and abandoned animals across British Columbia. In Kamloops and the surrounding area, they care for over 1,100 animals per year. The B.C. SPCA receives no funding from the federal or provincial government and relies on volunteers, donations and fundraising events to support its operations.

In 2015, the B.C. SPCA will be adopting out their millionth animal. As part of the celebration of this huge milestone, they are also launching the Million Acts of Kindness Campaign.

“If you love both acts of kindness and animals, you'll love our new campaign,” says Michelle Virdee, Vice Chair of the Community Council for the Kamloops and District Branch. “We will be unveiling our plans and ways the community can participate on Friday, Jan. 23, at 7 p.m., at Thompson Rivers University in the Old Main Building Room 2402.”

“We really hope the public comes on board with this campaign, especially our local community. Seating is limited, so please preregister at kamloopsevents@spca.bc.ca,” Virdee notes.

Geoff Urton, the Manager of Stakeholder Relations for the B.C. SPCA, will be making the presentation on the upcoming campaign. 

“We really hope to see a full house for this unveiling,” says Virdee. “We are so excited about the upcoming year, and our millionth adoption milestone, and we want the whole province to celebrate with us!”
