Hello! I’m Victor, formerly known as Marcellus. I’m a Lab Chow cross, originally from Fort St. John where I was found as a stray. I’ve been transferred to the BC SPCA Burnaby branch and I’m awaiting to meet my fur-ever family!
I can be nervous around new people, especially men or people in uniforms or hats. Hate hats! I like to be introduced to new people slowly, so that I can gain my confidence and my trust. I can be good with other dogs, as long as we have a proper introduction.
I like to keep an eye on things, guarding my area, so I like to have a fenced, secure yard. I also love walks, but need a bit of a tune up when it comes to walking on leash. But I learn fast! I am good off leash, and I love to play and be goofy. And my toys? I like to carry those around with me when I can. All that said, I also like to spend plenty of time indoors, snuggling with my peeps.
As you may have noticed, I’m a little bit chunky because I’m so food motivated. I do need to get my weight down. Ugh, so hard! I’m looking for a gentle guardian who will help put me on a healthy diet and give me plenty of exercise. I need to slim down for my long term health!
I think I’d do best with a woman’s or a gentle man’s touch, someone who is an experienced and kind guardian.
If you’d like to meet me or learn more about me, just head to the Burnaby BC SPCA. I hope to meet you soon!
9 Reasons Why You Should Get Involved in
National Cupcake Day™
National Cupcake Day™ is a cross-country fundraiser where animal lovers are encouraged to bake cupcakes and give them away in exchange for a donation. The money goes towards preventing animal cruelty and helping animals that have been abused, abandoned or neglected.
The event takes place on February 27th but we’re encouraging everyone to fundraise all month long. Proceeds go to SPCAs and participating Humane societies across Canada.
Before you say you’re too busy, you’re on a diet or you don’t bake, hear me out.
Here are nine reasons why I think you should get involved:
1) The state of the world is kind of sucky at the moment. This is an easy way to do some good.
2) You don’t have to train for a month to take part. (Though kudos to anyone who does!) Instead of walking, running or riding to raise money, here, you’re baking cupcakes.
3) You love animals. I see you out there, you can’t walk by a dog or a cat without petting them. You want to help those poor critters who are abused and neglected by their so-called guardians. We’re heard so many of those terrible stories lately.
4) Baking cupcakes is super easy. Trust me, I’m no pro baker. If I can do it, so can you.
5) Shortcuts are entirely permissible. Say yes to cupcake mix and premade frosting or to buying your cupcakes. It’s not about how well you bake.
6) It’s a fun thing to do with your kids on a rainy (or snowy!!) day.
7) For those still maintaining their resolutions, you don’t even have to EAT the cupcakes. You can donate directly to someone who has registered. (I will happily accept your donations. Just search under “participant.”)
8) You’ll be able to cross off “giving back” on your 2017 to-do list.
9) “Baking” a difference will make you feel great!
So, how do you go about this? Some ideas:
– Have a Cupcake Day party at home and encourage friends and family to drop by.
– Host a Cupcake Day party at work, encouraging everyone to bring cupcakes and a few bucks for donations.
– Ask your school if you can have a cupcake day party in the classroom.
– Forgo the party and delivery cupcakes to your donors.
– Donate directly to someone who is already registered as a host.

My name is Oscar but I’m no grouch! I’m a six year old all white beauty, as you can plainly see. I ended up at the shelter when my guardian died suddenly earlier this year and I’ve been here ever since. I’d love to find a cozy new home in time for the holidays. My only request is no other animals, I prefer to rule the roost!
I’m very friendly and I do like some attention. But other than that, I’m a pretty independent guy. I was raised indoor-outdoor, so I like to go out on occasion to enjoy the fresh air. My hobbies include sprawling out on my side and watching the world go by. Heated tile floor preferred but not required.
I’ll be at the BCSPCA West Vancouver branch, accepting visitors any day from 12 to 4 pm!
It’s the annual Turn Burrs for Purrs campaign. Adopt an adult cat from Nov 24 -Dec 5 2016, and save 50% of the adoption fee!
Helloooo world! We’re Goofie and Gizmo, two and a half year old guinea pigs, and we’re hanging out at the Surrey branch of the BC SPCA.
