With wildfires threatening communities across the province, the BC SPCA is holding a half-price adoption promotion to free up space for emergency boarding of animals displaced by the fires.

“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,” Lorie Chortyk, general manager of communications for the BC SPCA said in a press release.

The promotion takes place July 20 to 30 and is presented by Hill’s Pet Nutrition.

“We are offering 50% off adoption fees of all companion animals – dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, rabbits, guinea pigs and other small animals,” Chortyk said.

“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.”

The BC SPCA has provided free emergency boarding for more than 80 animals since the fires began through its shelters and at a BC SPCA Animal Evacuation Centre set up in Kamloops on July 7.
