Kamloops and District Cares - A New Home for Animals

Kamloops and District concept drawing

 

July 2018 Update - Construction is well underway on the new and improved BC SPCA Kamloops & District Community Animal Centre that will help care for and protect thousands of animals in our region. This will enable us to replace the aging shelter we currently have, as well as our offsite spay/neuter clinic with one new, purpose-built Animal Care Centre.

The new BC SPCA Kamloops & District Community Animal Centre is projected to cost approximately $6.5. million. With help from the community, we have already secured much of these funds and have only $530,000 left to raise!

Your compassionate gift towards the new Community Animal Centre will bring us one step closer to meeting that goal - to build a better future for animals in Kamloops. The animals need you to help open the doors. Please make a gift today!  

The Kamloops & District shelter cares for over 1,500 animals every year but the current space isn't big enough and the space is not ideal in allowing staff to efficiently offer the quality of care the animals, staff, and volunteers require. The new 10,500 sq. ft. state-of-the-art Community Animal Centre will include modern animal welfare designs to promote the highest levels of animal health. It will serve as a critical hub for animal cruelty investigations in the region and will include larger indoor/outdoor kennels for dogs and cats, a multi-purpose room for humane education programs and 2,340 sq. ft. will be set aside for a spay/neuter clinic.

This new facility will transform how abused and abandoned animals are cared for in the region. Together we can prevent animal suffering and give vulnerable animals in need a second chance. This new facility could make Kamloops and area one of the most humane regions in B.C.,” said Craig Daniell, CEO BC SPCA.

  For more information about how you can lend a hand with building the new facility including donations and named sponsorship opportunities, please contact Lisa Fuller, manager of community development at (250) 572-3297 or lfuller@spca.bc.ca.

The New Kamloops & District Community Animal Centre

We are building a new and improved BC SPCA Kamloops & District Community Animal Centre that will help care for and protect thousands of animals each year. This will enable us to replace the aging and inadequate shelter we currently have, combined with our offsite spay/neuter clinic with one new, purpose-built Animal Care Centre.

The new BC SPCA Kamloops & District Community Animal Centre is projected to cost approximately $6.5. million. With help from the community, we have already secured much of these funds including a very special gift of $1.5 million from the Province of British Columbia. We have only $740,000 left to raise!

Your compassionate gift towards will bring us one step closer to meeting that goal - to build a better future for animals in Kamloops. The animals need you to help open the doors. Please make a gift today!

The new 10,500-square-foot facility will be a critical hub for animal rescue in the Kamloops region and will be a special place to strengthen the bond between animals and humans.

This new Community Animal Centre will meet the needs of the animals and create a welcoming place for potential adopters - making all the difference in how quickly animals find their new families. This new facility will incorporate modern designs to ensure the highest levels of health and welfare for animals, including a 2,340-square-foot clinic for spay/neuter surgeries to help reduce pet overpopulation in the region, 12 shared "apartments" for dogs to encourage natural movement and socialization, five large cat rooms, designated areas for temperament and behaviour assessments, and specialized isolation areas for sick and injured animals. The centre will also have a large retail area for pet supplies, a dog-wash station for the public, office space for regional animal cruelty investigators and a multi-purpose space for dog training, SPCA youth camps, workshops and other events for the community.
