Our Story

Our Mission: Keeping families together.

The British Columbia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (BC SPCA) has been protecting animals for more than 120 years. Today, we continue our mission with life-saving programs such as the BC Pet Registry: British Columbia’s only provincial pet ID database.

The BC Pet Registry was created in 2015 with the sole goal of reuniting more lost pets with their people. With over thousands of pets lost in Canada each year due to a lack of registered identification (ID), the program is more crucial than ever.

By having more pets’ microchips, tattoos, and licenses registered with our provincial pet ID database, we hope to reverse this trend, decreasing the length of stay for missing pets in shelters and increasing the amount of lost pets that are reunited with their families.

Community Partners

We partner with veterinary clinics and shelters across Canada to ensure lost pets are reunited with their families. Pet owners can have their pets microchipped and registered with the BC Pet Registry at any participating veterinary clinic. Learn more about our BC Pet Registry Community.

BC Pet Registry Grant Application

The BC Pet Registry Grant Program enables participating veterinarians and animal sheltering agencies to provide free microchips and registrations to pets with low-income guardians. Other activities considered for eligibility are public microchip clinics, spay/neuter initiatives, and feral cat identification initiatives. To be considered, veterinary clinics or shelters must complete the grant application process.
