      The BC Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has announced it will no longer host SPCA satellite adoption centres in Bosley’s Pet Food Plus stores in British Columbia, effective immediately.

      “When we launched our partnership with Bosley’s in October of 2009 it was a wonderful opportunity for us to increase public awareness and exposure for animals needing homes,” says Craig Daniell, chief executive officer of the BC SPCA.

      “Bosley’s former president and general manager Ken Almond and his staff were very committed to the partnership and to our shared goal of improving animal welfare in B.C.”

      In addition to working collaboratively on the satellite adoption program in 17 of its B.C. retail outlets, Bosley’s also provided corporate support for the BC SPCA & Scotiabank Paws for a Cause event and other SPCA initiatives.

      I will no longer be shopping at Bosley's until they return to their policy of no live animal sales. Too many animals are already in our shelters to be breeding and selling in pet stores.

      Too many non-native species are sold as designer, fad pets. They are quickly abandoned and dumped by those unwilling to commit to life-time care who were unaware of the care required in the first place. as example: There are so many Sulcata/spur tortoises in the desert now that our own Sonoran tortoise is at the edge of extinction in the wild!!!

      I have already stopped shopping at Bosley's, and it will remain this way until they stop selling animals at their stores.
