Offleashed brings together hundreds of animal lovers every year to celebrate the joy of animals and to support the BC SPCA’s lifesaving work around the province. Even if we can’t be together in person, we can still come together to make a difference for the animals.
Our virtual Offleashed is a short and sweet celebration with the same heartwarming and inspirational stories you love to hear. And of course, we’ll have plenty of adorable animals! It may not be quite the same as our famous in-person Cuddle Lounge, but we’ll do our best!

Your generosity changes thousands of animals’ lives – more than 95,000 annually. The millions of dollars raised through Offleashed have powered so many of the BC SPCA’s vital programs: sheltering and adoptions, pet food bank and outreach services, veterinary care, wildlife rehabilitation, and summer camps and school programs for kids.
Your kindness and compassion have given so many animals happy and healthy new lives. For Rian, his happy ending is his new life with the O’Neill family in Vancouver.
“I just thought he was the best thing ever. The whole way home with him in my lap, I just thought, I’m dreaming!”
– Maiya, 10 years old
Rian was adopted by the O’Neill family after appearing on CTV News with Kim Monteith, Manager, Animal Welfare.

Animals – and people – across our province need the BC SPCA’s help every day. This year, that’s been truer than ever. Since the start of the pandemic, the BC SPCA has provided vulnerable animals and their guardians with critical support through increased pet food banks, emergency boarding assistance, and by serving as a vital resource in every community. The BC SPCA is uniquely able to deploy efficient, transformative help across British Columbia.
No matter what, the BC SPCA will be there for the animals and the people who love them. We know you will be too.
All funds raised at Offleashed support the BC SPCA’s mission work.
Here are a few examples of how your dollars help animals

One month of food and care for a horse
One month of formula for a litter of orphaned kittens
