A Message From the Animal Welfare Committee and the BC SPCA






BC SPCA Animal Cruelty Conference in Langley, October 3- October 5

BC veterinarians play a key role in caring for thousands of animal victims of cruelty and neglect every year. From identifying and reporting cases of cruelty and neglect to providing direct care for animals to assisting with cruelty investigations, vets are on the front lines. Please join other animal professionals for three days of lectures and workshops on a variety of topics relevant to this work.

Traditional forensics topics will be covered, as well as recognizing psychological abuse in animals, the link between animal abuse and domestic violence, self-care and mental health strategies, low-stress handling, and what to expect when testifying.
