SPCA Coquitlam Chapter offers half the adoption fee for two weeks

For two weeks, the SPCA is offering interested pet owners the chance to find a new friend at half the normal adoption cost. Here is who is looking for a house in our area.

A dozen animals are currently awaiting adoption at the BC SPCA Coquitlam Chapter.

And the organization is offering interested pet owners the chance to take one home for half the price.

Effective today (October 15), the BC SPCA is offering a 50% reduction on adoption fees as part of efforts to free up space for incoming animals in need of urgent care.

Several kittens, cats and birds are in the care of volunteers and staff at the Tri-Cities SPCA Education and Adoption Center, located at 1-2565 Lougheed Hwy. in Coquitlam.


You can view the list of pets available for adoption below.


All, according to the BC SPCA, hope to find a forever home through the two-week promotion.

“We have so many animals in our care who are looking for loving homes,” spokeswoman Adrienne McBride added in a statement.

“As well as finding families for these amazing pets, we want to make sure we have open space in our facilities and foster homes for other animals that need a warm, safe place. where to stay as cold weather approaches.

“If you’ve been thinking about adopting a pet and giving it the loving home it deserves, we encourage you to act now and take advantage of this promotion.”

The Adoption Fee Half-Off Event runs until October 29.

Interested residents are encouraged to visit the BC SPCA adoption page for more information.

Here are the pets currently up for adoption in the Tri-Cities (from youngest to oldest), along with SPCA profile descriptions:

buddy and max

Buddy and Max are best friends and are looking for a house together.

They are still quite shy, but are beginning to be curious around people and purr with gentle animals.

They would do best in a quiet, welcoming home with a family that can provide several play sessions throughout the day and continue their socialization.

Amy

Amy is currently working with her adoptive mother to get her used to handling and socializing.

Experience working with birds is recommended.

big wig

Big Wig is a bunny with quite the personality.

His SPCA profile says he needs a home where he can roam freely in a wide space, likes to hang out in his “tree”, fetch treats and chew.

“He is very social and would like a home where his family can interact with him often. He would like us to also share that he likes romaine lettuce, parsley and cilantro!”

Ellipse

Ellipsis is a young rabbit who always seems ready for adventure and fun.

She likes to have plenty of space to jump, play and explore, but tends to be shy and takes a little time to warm up to strangers.

Rabbits are active animals that need lots of room to jump around, runs, playpens or a full rabbit room would be great!

Be sure to do your research to ensure that your lifestyle is compatible with the needs of rabbits.

octavia

This super soft bunny lives a very luxurious life of adventure.

Octavia has come a long way, but still needs the help of her new human parents to help her be more confident.

Rabbits are active animals that need lots of room to jump around, runs, playpens or a full rabbit room would be great!

Be sure to do your research to ensure that your lifestyle is compatible with the needs of rabbits. They are also very social creatures, so ideally a home with one or more other social bunnies would be great.

Cailey

Cailey is a sweet and shy kitty, but warms up quickly.

She can be a little picky with her food, but hopefully with a home of her own she will be more comfortable and put on a bit more weight.

As with any new furry family member, interested residents are strongly recommended to start her in a smaller, enclosed space in your home so she can get used to the new sounds and smells of her new surroundings.

She is booked for her sterilization on October 25 in Port Coquitlam, so her new family would pick her up as a “home to adopt” and care for her until then.

Wasabi

Just like its namesake, Wasabi can be a bit spicy when edgy, minus the green part.

She is a recent mom and we noticed that she felt quite protective of her little ones. They have now all found a home, but Wasabi is looking for a family she can call her own.

She is very talkative and will always have a good story to tell you. Wasabi loves attention and if she doesn’t get enough of it, she may decide to climb up the side of your leg. She loves Churu hits and has an adorable purr box that often goes non-stop.

She would like a home where she could explore (or one with a catio) and also have several play sessions with you throughout the day as she has a lot of energy to spare. If you’re willing to train with a harness and leash, that could also be something she would definitely appreciate.

As with any new furry family member, we highly recommend starting him in a smaller, enclosed space in your home so he can get used to the new sounds and smells of his new environment. The changes can be quite scary for some kittens, so she asks you to be patient with her until she is comfortable.

Dior

Dior is a sweet and affectionate girl ready to find her forever home.

She’s cuddly and loving, but has a bit of a nervous stomach, so she’ll do best in a quieter home without young children.

She is very friendly and playful and loves toys with cat herbs!

She is booked for her sterilization and dental checkup on Nov. 1 in Port Coquitlam, so her new family would pick her up as a “home to adopt” and care for her until then.
