This year, the Nova Scotia SPCA will care for nearly 15,000 pets. Some need one-on-one support to overcome abuse and neglect. Others need emergency medical treatment to survive.
It’s tough, but you can make it easier. Support second chances and help save lives with a donation to the SPCA.Make a Gift
The homeless animals in our shelters are waiting patiently and hoping for that moment when someone will look into their eyes and see how special they are. Become a hero by rescuing a pet and creating space for more animals to be saved.Adopt a Best Friend

Foster families provide socialization and love to pets who are young or need to recover from illnesses or injuries. When you temporarily open up your heart and home to a foster pet, we will provide all the supplies and training you need.Open your Home
SPCA Thrift Stores
We have four SPCA Thrift Stores throughout the province and 100% of the proceeds support the shelter pets in our care. Relying on the generosity and support of community donations, our thrift stores accept a wide variety of household items.Learn More
Donate a Car
When you donate your car, truck, RV, boat, or motorcycle to Nova Scotia SPCA through Donate A Car Canada, it will either be recycled or sold at auction depending on its condition, age and location. Free towing is provided in most areas across Canada, or you can drop off your vehicle to maximize your donation.
Donate a Car Canada will look after all the details to make it easy for Nova Scotia SPCA to benefit. After your vehicle donation is complete, we will send you a charitable tax receipt and your donation will be used to help save lives.Donate a vehicle
