As devastating wildfires continue to impact many communities across British Columbia, the BC SPCA has already provided care for hundreds of animals in need, including those who have been rescued from behind fire lines, more than 104 animals being cared for through the BC SPCA’s emergency boarding program, and those whose families’ have needed emergency supplies.
