Pets need homes in Maple Ridge

The BC SPCA is trying to find “forever homes” for hundreds of homeless animals during the month of December

Take a pet home for the holidays!

The B.C. SPCA is trying to find  homes for hundreds of homeless animals during the month of December through its Home for the Holidays pet adoption drive. SPCA shelters, adoption centres and volunteer-run branches currently have 4,000 homeless cats, kittens, dogs, puppies, rabbits and small animals in care.

“What better gift to give a homeless animal than a caring family and a warm home?” says Lorie Chortyk, general manager of community relations for the BC SPCA. “The SPCA strongly discourages giving pets as gifts. But if an individual or family has carefully considered their decision and the responsibility of a new pet, the holidays can be an optimum time to adopt. Families are more likely to be off work or school during the holidays and have more time to spend with each other and with their new companion animal.”
