125th Anniversary

The BC government issued a special proclamation this week to mark the 125th anniversary of the BC SPCA. Since its inception, the non-profit animal welfare organization has helped more than a million injured and abused domestic, farm and wild animals. The BC SPCA came into existence because of the mistreatment of horses who were being used to haul heavy materials in BCs booming construction economy at the turn of the 20th century. A small group of clergy, journalists and businessmen concerned about the abuse of these horses successfully lobbied the government to create laws to protect animals in 1895 and the BC SPCA was created.
