The Celebration

JW Marriott Parq Vancouver

Cuddle Lounge 6pm
Dinner 7:30pm

Save the date – you won’t want to miss Vancouver’s biggest event to celebrate animals!

If you’ve attended before, you already know how great Offleashed is – thank you for your support and we can’t wait to see you in October.

If you haven’t attended Offleashed, we have two words for you: Cuddle Lounge. Really. In 2022, we hosted our largest Cuddle Lounge yet featuring fluffy and fuzzy rescue puppies, kitties, and other animals. And 2023 will be even cuddlier. Not only will you get to cuddle rescue animals, you’ll hear amazing stories told by the inspiring people who save animals’ lives every day.

Offleashed is always so inspiring because, at the core, this event is about growing our animal loving community and educating humans of all ages on what is possible if we all stand together.

Save the date for Offleashed 2023 and let’s make some magic happen.


Stay tuned. Ticket sales will launch in the spring.

Your Impact

Animals and their people across our province need the BC SPCA’s help every day and over the last few years, demand has skyrocketed. Floods, heat domes, Covid, wildfires, financial insecurity – the reasons for need keep increasing. But the BC SPCA is a constant community presence, providing vulnerable animals and their guardians with critical support such as pet food banks and vet services, emergency boarding assistance, and by serving as a vital resource across the province.

Your generosity changes thousands of animals’ lives. Did you know the BC SPCA is helping almost 120,000 animals a year in B.C.?  YOU make this happen. Kids can do this too and we can all do it TOGETHER, at Offleashed. The millions of dollars raised through Offleashed powers the BC SPCA’s essential programs: sheltering and adoptions, pet food bank and outreach services, veterinary care, wildlife rehabilitation, and summer camps and school programs for kids, to name just a few.

Your support helps animals like Gunner. He was surrendered to the BC SPCA the day our Offleashed Chair Tracey was filming 2021’s Virtual Cuddle Lounge.  He closed our show, the perfect family was waiting, and he’s now living his best life.  

Join us on October 21st for heartwarming updates on animals your support has saved. 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 power the BC SPCA’s mission work.

Yes, I will be there.
I feel inspired to help right now. Please accept my loving gift to change the life of an animal in need.

Thank You to Our 2022 Sponsors!


What is included with my ticket?

By attending Offleashed, you’ll help change animals’ lives. A ticket to Offleashed directly supports the BC SPCA’s work saving animals. You get a whole fun evening with access to the Cuddle Lounge featuring BC SPCA animal ambassadors, beverages, a 3-course dinner, special insight into the BC SPCA’s work from the experts themselves, plus a room full of people who love animals like you do.

Is this a family friendly event?

Yes. This is the only philanthropic event in Vancouver where families can cuddle animals, learn and give together. We share emotional stories and content more suitable to older kids (please think about your children, we understand every kid is very unique, use your discretion). 

How does my ticket help animals?

Thanks to our generous and wonderful sponsors, every dollar raised at Offleashed, including ticket and table sales, is used to help animals. The BC SPCA relies on donations from individuals and businesses for all daily operations like cruelty investigations, sheltering and adoption, running the animal helpline, and teaching future generations about animals. Your support makes the BC SPCA’s work possible.

What is the dress code for Offleashed?

We call it “fetching” but you can read that as “cocktail” or “business.” And don’t worry, we’ll have lint rollers on hand to help remove all the animal hairs after your visit to the Cuddle Lounge.

Will I receive my tickets in the mail?

No, we do not issue physical tickets. Your name and the names of your guests (if you bought tickets for others) will be included on our registration list and you will have an email confirmation. You simply check in upon arrival.

Can I purchase a table without knowing the names of my guests?

Yes, you will be able to register within our online platform and return at your leisure to your account so you can update your guests’ information including names, meal preferences, and contact information.
