http://www.spca.bc.ca - Mission: To protect and enhance the quality of life for domestic, farm and wild animals in British Columbia. Animals of all kinds are an important part of life and society and domestic animals have a striking similarity to kids, in the sense that they rely on adults so heavily. They offer a lot of intangible emotional growth in return and they are also extremely vulnerable to mistreatment because they cannot defend themselves and they cannot speak out for themselves. For this they need us. They hold a special place in my heart as they do in many people’s hearts. Please help in the best way you can.
