Powell River SPCA and Tla’amin Nation continue animal welfare partnership

Relationship grows through mutual interest in helping animals thrive

Tla’amin Nation and BC SPCA Powell River and District Branch share a mutual interest in animal welfare. The nation and organization recently announced the next step in a partnership of trust through the signing of a memorandum of understanding.

“Our relationship has been growing for the last several years,” stated BC SPCA Powell River manager Tara Daniels in a media release on April 29. “We’ve been partnered with the nation on providing a spay/neuter program for the past two years and have found other opportunities to work together.

“A partnership like this helps position us as a resource and support for community members, which creates a positive environment to help both people and animals thrive.”

During the COVID-19 lockdown in the community, the shelter helped to support pets in Tla’amin by providing dog and cat food, which was distributed internally during those weeks.

“Tla’amin Nation is very pleased with the recent signing of a memorandum of understanding with the SPCA,” stated Tla’amin Community Services house post Losa Luaifoa. “This MOU formalizes and strengthens the great partnership we have established with the local SPCA. We look forward to continuing this work together.”
