A Second Chance - 2014

Corinne G.

Dear family and friends, this Christmas I hope to achieve something more significant than the exchange of presents.

This cause is close to my heart as I love animals and want to help those in need. I adopted a cat from the BC SPCA a few years ago that was previously homeless, and I've been so glad to provide him with food and shelter. As I cannot adopt anymore animals at this time, I would like to support the BC SPCA in continuing their excellent work to take care of homeless animals who desperately need food, shelter and medicine.

BC SPCA was rated as one of Canada's top charities. The donations they receive goes directly to helping the animals, and they don't take any admin fees.

"Your gift can help save lives. The BC SPCA is a not-for-profit organization that relies on public donations to protect and enhance the quality of life for domestic, farm and wild animals in British Columbia."

I would greatly appreciate anything you can contribute! It will make a big difference to one animal.
 

Double Your Donation - Save More Lives

Thanks to some amazing and generous animal lovers both matches have now been met!

Inspired by the remarkable generosity of animal lovers, the Eldon & Anne Foote Fund at the Edmonton Community Foundation matched up to $50,000 in donations to A Second Chance.

Longtime BC SPCA supporter Mrs. Gisela Waibel also loved the idea of being able to help more animals. She  pledged to match an additional $5,000 in donations.  

Thank you to the Eldon & Anne Foote Fund at the Edmonton Community Foundation, Gisela Waibel and the generous BC SPCA supporters whose gifts have been matched for helping twice as many animals get a second chance.

 

The Happy Ending...

Once Nelson was at the vet, he was rushed into surgery. The vet discovered that he had seven pellets from a pellet gun, embedded in his head, and determined that the deep wound across his neck was from a knife. Even though Nelson was frightened of another person hurting him, he came to understand that we were there to help...
