Four cats and five kittens were adopted from the Parksville SPCA branch on Nov. 9 during the half-price adoption event.
It’s the BC SPCA’s second annual province-wide adoption event, which aims to find as many homes as possible for their animals.
The North Peace branch had the highest number of adoptions – 17, including 14 kittens and three dogs. The Vancouver branch had the second highest, with 15 adoptions including five cats, seven kittens, one dog and two rabbits. Kittens were the most popular pet across the province, with a total of 91 adoptions, followed by 76 cats and 24 dogs.
“Congratulations to everyone who came out to provide a loving home for an animal in our care,” said Mark Takhar, BC SPCA’s chief operations officer, in a press release. “Thank you to all of our branch staff, who were there to answer questions about the animals, walk through our adoption matching process and accommodate the increased volume of people passing through the doors at our 36 branches across the province.”
