Making our pets and animals lives the best that they can be.

Do you know that British Columbia has one of the highest pet and animal populations in Canada and no one to speak for their guardians.

The BC SPGA was recently formed to represent BC's animal and pet guardians and bring together our community as one Voice.

Our aim is to support and advocate for animal guardians and welcome new ideas, suggestions and initiatives.

  • Programs and assistance for guardians with animals and pets
  • Savings on products and services for guardians with animals
  • Being the Voice and advocating for BC guardians
  • Providing recognition to outstanding animal guardians
  • Working to make changes for better and fairer laws
  • Providing useful community resources and information
  • Providing a guide with animal rescues
  • Bringing like-minded animal guardians together for socials and activities

95% of animal guardians in Canada think of their pets as family. Pets contribute so much to our lives and those of our children. With higher costs of living and low pet vacancies in BC it's increasingly more difficult to keep a pet.

British Columbians with pets and animals deserve a Voice so we can make our animals lives the best that they can be.

Building a better future for BC's animal guardians

BC SPGA is the Voice for BC's animal guardians and their animal and pet families. We advocate for better access to services and we work with all partners to arrive at good solutions and positive improvements. We listen to our membership who are the driving force for change and better lives for the animals that we hold so dear.

Our Mission

Making our pets and animals lives the best that they can be by improving access to pet-friendly, affordable accommodation and bringing rights and protections for BC Animal Guardians.

Our Voice

To be the Voice for animal guardians in British Columbia to protect our families and pets and ensure animal Guardians are represented and our VOICE is heard in all pertinent areas in our provincial government.

Animal Guardians

55% of British Columbians own a pet or animal and 95% of the animal guardians in Canada consider their pets are family. Our pets and animals are important in our lives and our contributions in all facets of Society should be recognized.

We Care

Animals need us to care for them. While BC'ers are struggling as never before with a lack of accommodation, basic living needs, food, transportation, climate change, a helping hand is welcome. BC SPGA's Guardian and Pets In Hardship program helps to keep pets and animals with their families and loved ones during these very challenging times. The program urgently needs your donation.

Help us to make the lives of animals better

95% of animal guardians in Canada view their pets as family yet one in four Canadians are unable to cover an unexpected expense of $500. With the unprecedented, soaring costs in BC of bare necessities such as food and pet-friendly accommodation, the need has arisen for animal guardians, who are facing the rising costs of maintaining and feeding a pet to have a Voice in order to provide better lives for their animals and pets.

BC Guardian And Pets In Hardship Program

British Columbians with pets are struggling in these unprecedented times to make ends meet.

The challenges of keeping a pet or animal are resulting in many being placed in rescues and shelters

Animals loosing their loved ones is very frightening and traumatic. Places like the BC SPCA euthanize unwanted pets and sell those that meet their criteria. Other rescues are unable to accept more pets due to over-crowding.

The BC government has dnot assisted BC Animal Guardians because pet owners are not seen as a priority and neither are their pets.

The BC SPGA have taken the initiative to develop a program that assists families and individuals to keep their pets.

We assist financially, work with local veterinarians, help to seek accommodation and advocate for no-kill rescues and shelters if rehoming cannot be avoided.

Animals have feelings, thoughts, intelligence and long to be with their loved ones and their families. They have no voice when cruelly removed from loved ones and famillies who are struggling. It is a fate that leaves scars for life.

The BC SPGA believes that animals belong with their loved ones. We advocate for policing reforms at the BC SPCA including that the organization use their $80+ million surplus to HELP ANIMALS and their families in need.

The need is great, the animals should not suffer. Please help with a donation to The BC Guardian And Pets In Hardship Program.
