The New Kamloops & District Community Animal Centre

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 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 foundation is poured and the framing started. Construction is on target for completion in December, 2018.
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 $540,000 left to raise!
Your compassionate gift towards the new facility 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 doesn’t allow staff to offer the quality of care the animals deserve. 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 provide us the needed space and resources to care for the abused and abandoned animals in the region and give vulnerable animals in need a second chance. We also look forward to having the capacity to increase our humane education programming and having the multi purpose community room which we will be able to offer as options to businesses and other groups to hold meetings” said Charleen Holloway Branch Manager, BC SPCA.
