If you were thinking about adopting a pet, this is the weekend to do so.
The BC SPCA is holding a province-wide event on Saturday where animals in need of a loving forever home will be available at a reduced cost.

Domestic animals like dogs, cats, kittens, rats and rabbits will all be eligible for 50% off the adoption and BC Pet Registry fees.
This discount will be honoured at all branches across the province where adoptable animals are staying.
“Each one of our branches is committed to finding loving homes for these animals,” says Mark Takhar, BC SPCA’s chief operations officer. “Welcoming a rescued animal into your home can be an exciting time for everyone involved.”
“Our top priority is to ensure that every animal finds their perfect people, so our usual matching process will still be in effect for this event.”
Takhar says the event will also allow the SPCA to help more animals, since every adoption opens up a spot for another one to be rescued.
We want to make sure no animal is left behind,” he said, “and this event in particular – a groundbreaking one for the BC SPCA – will allow us to help other vulnerable animals throughout the province.”
While this event covers all domestic animals, any discount rate for farm animals will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
The BC SPCA found loving families for more than 15,000 animals in 2017.
