We have received reports of an individual canvassing door-to-door collecting donations for the BC SPCA. At this time, the BC SPCA has not made contact with this individual.
For personal safety reasons, the BC SPCA does not promote soliciting money from strangers by canvassing door-to-door. As a non-profit organization, the BC SPCA relies mainly on public donations to help the province's most vulnerable animals, but it recommends fundraising in different ways.
If you're not sure if someone knocking on your door is legitimately raising funds and you don't personally know them, please don't hesitate to call your local BC SPCA branch to check prior to giving any financial contributions.
BC SPCA branch manager
