Wanted: Photos of pets adopted from the SPCA

BC SPCA celebrating millionth animal adoption this month.

The BC SPCA is excited to announce that the organization is set to adopt its one millionth animal later this month.

In celebration, anyone who has adopted animals from the BC SPCA over the past six decades are invited to post photos of themselves with their adopted pet (or a picture of the pet on its own) on the BC SPCA Facebook page (www.facebook.com/bcspca). Posting a photo will automatically enter you to win a new iPad Air, generously donated by TELUS, and using the hashtag #oneinamillion shows you’re a proud BC SPCA adoptive parent, whether past or present.

Everyone is invited to visit the Facebook photo gallery to view pictures of adopters and adoptees – what the organization is playfully referring to as BC SPCA alumni – over the past 60-odd years.

“This is the BC SPCA’s 120th year in operation but the society didn’t start its adoption program until the 1950s when it began building animal shelters across the province,” says general manager of Community Relations, Lorie Chortyk. “We are very excited that we will be adopting out our one millionth animal this month, but we also want to recognize and honour the 999,999 other people who provided wonderful, loving homes for the animals we’ve rescued over the past decades.”

While this celebration is in recognition of past adoptees, there are hundreds more beautiful animals awaiting adoption in the province right now. With more than 28,000 animals taken into BC SPCA care each year, there are always furry friends waiting for their forever homes.

To enter the #oneinamillion photo contest, go to the BC SPCA Facebook page from Nov. 3-20 and click on the ‘photo contest’ tab near the top. Follow the steps to upload a picture of the animal you adopted from the BC SPCA or better yet, of you and the animal you adopted.
