NOW OPEN: BC SPCA Spay/Neuter funding

BCSPCA spay fundingHey Funds Fans – just so you know, I did not make that logo up myself 😉  This post is for pet-lovers across B.C.  For 2015, the BC SPCA is offering a total of $80,000 for cat spay/neuter programs and $7,500 for dog or rabbit spay/neuter programs in communities across B.C. Successful applicants will be allocated funding based on demonstrated need and ability to match funds. There is no set minimum or maximum amount to apply. Deadline: December 31, 2014.

Successful grant applications will demonstrate the need and be able to document a plan for use of the funds. It is their goal to be able to make a demonstrated impact on a group of animals. This means that applications targeted at fixing at least 85% of the animals identified in a colony or community will be prioritized.

Cat program: Funds are to be targeted at B.C. cats most at risk of contributing to cat overpopulation such as 1) intact neighborhood or community-fed cats, abandoned cats and feral cats living in colonies, where there are one or more caretakers (referred to from here on as “free-roaming” cats) or 2) cats cared for by owners/guardians in a First Nations community.

Dog or rabbit program: Funds are to be used for either 1) free-roaming dogs or rabbits where there is one or more caretakers or 2) dogs cared for by owners/guardians in a First Nations community.

Who can apply?

  • BC SPCA Branches
  • First Nation’s governments and tribal councils
  • Local governments (municipal and regional district)
  • Registered animal charities and non-profits
  • Veterinarians
