Every year, thousands of unwanted animals are dropped off at BC SPCA shelters throughout the province. Thousands more are abandoned and left to die in fields, parks and on the streets. We are seeking funds for a targeted research campaign to:

1. Identify the factors that contribute to pet overpopulation in BC;

2. Design effective and long-term strategies to reduce the number of unwanted animals; and

3. Launch an aggressive campaign to spay and neuter an additional 1,000 animals for impoverished and First Nations pet owners in the most vulnerable communities.

How will the $100K be used?

Budget Notes: The project coordinator will implement a comprehensive research program that will lead to effective, long-term solutions to pet overpopulation. Data from surveys and other sources are needed to design effective strategies to reduce the number of unwanted animals in BC.
$ 50,000 To spay and neuter 1,000 animals in areas of greatest need in BC
$ 40,000 To hire a project coordinator (includes salary and expenses)
$ 10,000 To fund public surveys and other key research data
