Sweet Sammy is looking for a spectacular home to call her own. This beautiful 12 year old FURRiend was brought into the care of the BCSPCA with her brother, sister and mother after her guardian of 12 years passed away. At first this was a very scary time for Sammy and her furr-family, but with a little time and a lot of love, Sammy is ready to claim her spot next to some very lucky person. Like her siblings, Sammy has a weight loss journey ahead of her too and is looking for an adopter willing to help her get there. A best-match environment would be calm and quiet with plush beds for napping on and dedicated grooming times. Sammy has recently discovered the joys of toys that move and would love to incorporate more play time into her routine.
1. Visit the Nelson BC SPCA Community Animal Centre or call 250-352-7178 to learn more about Sammy’s ideal match and apply to adopt in person; or
2. Submit an online application at https://spca.bc.ca/survey/cat-adoption-application-nelson/ and staff will contact the first suitable adopter to set-up a visit! Kindly note that due to the high number of applications and the availability of walk-in adoptions, we will only be contacting potential adopters to further review their interest.
*Masks and social distancing are still required inside the building. All adoptions are by appointment.
