Win a BC SPCA Shop Gift Cardby
“It would have been perfect, but I would have to give up Buttons,” my mother has said to me several times over the last year. She’s been looking to move back into Downtown Vancouver but since adopting her kitten, the search has been a struggle since many properties do not allow pets in some capacity.
Pet-friendly rental accommodations has been a hot topic in Vancouver, as more than 60% of Vancouver residents have a dog or cat. According to the BC SPCA, 20 per cent of the animals dropped off at their shelter is by owners facing housing related issues1. However, landlords say renting to pet owners isn’t an easy decision.
“I agree that everyone has a right to a home. I’m not sure that right extends to including pets,” said David Hutniak, Landlord BC’s CEO. He said they love animals too, but regardless of how well-behaved a pet is, units have to be maintained – and that often means replacing flooring once the animal moves out.2
The City of Vancouver is pushing for the province to revitalize legislation on pet ownership to accommodate our furry family, but that’s not to say there are a few options out there already. Bosa and BlueSky Properties offers pet-friendly rentals in three Vancouver communities including Downtown, Chinatown and False Creek, with buildings offering pet-friendly amenities like “laundro-mutt” pet wash stations at LIDO at False Creek.

The shop has plush toy animals, leashes and harnesses, t-shirts, hoodies, and many more items for the pet lover in your life. You can also donate to the care of a wild animal, or purchase educational resources.

My daughter baked cupcakes for the SPCA national cupcake day. She loves animals; she would be thrilled to win this prize.
Great — !
Great prize pack❤
We adopted our kitty from the spca. love them
I’ve been meaning to visit the SPCA shop. This would be great!
Roses to the BCSPCA for all they do for the animals 🙂
It is horrible that so many rentals turn away potential tenants with pets. My landlord didn’t hesitate to let us move in with a dog AND a cat after we had a civilized conversation about it (and I gave a small pet deposit) it is a shame not more landlords have an open mind – so many owners surrender pets because of these archaic policies!
Thank you for supporting the SPCA and hosting this contest!
Great give away.
Would love to win! I am a monthly donor to the SPCA and would love to buy some stuff from their shop to show my support and create more awareness of their cause of course. Great idea for a contest! 🙂
