The BC SPCA is caring for 119 small dogs surrendered into care from a property near Fort Nelson on March 12, 2021.

In response to  119 small, mixed breed dogs have been surrendered to the BC SPCA  Lake View Credit Union is partnering with the Dawson Creek SPCA in a blanket drive from now until April 9.

For every clean blanket or towel donated to the South Peace SPCA between now and April, the Lake View Credit Union Foundation will contribute $8 to help support the SPCA in their time of need. LVCU says everyone who can to please consider helping out, with the caveat that the blankets or towels MUST BE CLEAN when dropped off.

“We were all dismayed when we heard about the plight of all those poor little dogs, but we know they’re in good hands and we want to do everything we can to support our local SPCA’s efforts”, said Lake View Credit Union CEO, Lori Archibald. 

“We hope that offering to contribute eight dollars for every blanket donated will get people’s attention and encourage them to make time to follow through on their intent to donate.”

Marcie Moriarty, chief enforcement and prevention officer for the BC SPCA, said managing an unexpected intake of 119 dogs has put a huge strain on their financial resources.

"As a non-profit organization, we are very grateful for the public’s support. n the first three days veterinary costs are already over $14,000.”

Arrangements can be made with the South Peace SPCA to drop off CLEAN blankets and towels.
