Wildfires in B.C.’s Southern Interior have forced the animals at the Penticton branch of the BC SPCA to be relocated to other shelters.
With hundreds of people forced out of their homes due to the wildfires, it can also provide emergency boarding for pets at its Kelowna branch, added the BC SPCA.
The organization can also offer pet food and supplies to those who have been forced to flee.
Pet owners are encouraged to plan for their animals while making evacuation preparations.
Anyone needing assistance can contact the animal helpline at 1-855-622-7722.
