PRINCE GEORGE - Over the last couple of month's SPCA's across the Province have seen an overwhelming amount of animals come into their shelters. On Saturday, October 13th all BC SPCA's will host the "Fall Head Over Tails In Love" event to find the animals a loving home. 

The Prince George SPCA has experienced an increase of 43 cats, 30 kittens, 2 bunnies and 39 dogs since September. They're taking part in a one-day, province-wide adoption event where pets are available for 50 percent off their original adoption rate.  

"We have seen significant increases in adoption's thanks to these events. Sometimes it's just a matter of little incentives like these for someone to make the decision to adopt an animal in need and we really hope this will be the case for this event as well and we can find loving homes for many of our animals," says Manager of Animal Centre, Dr Alex Schare.

In 2017, the BC SPCA found families for more than 15 thousand animals. This year the shelter is at full capacity and the goal is to find the animals a forever home while making space for new pets. 

One local dog owner and volunteer at the SPCA found her new friend at the shelter and says the process was simple. She believes "you have to give to the ones that are stuck."

The event will run from 12 until 6 PM on Saturday at the BC SPCA North Cariboo District Branch.
