    • Tens of thousands of cats, dogs, small animals, and reptiles roam the streets or reside in shelters, sanctuaries, and rescue organizations.
    • Thousands more suffer daily neglect and abuse at the hands of their guardians.
    • There are no criteria required for groups to be involved in animal welfare and rescue.
    • There is no accountability or funding support for these organizations.
    • There is little corporate, provincial, or federal financial support.
    • Animal protection-related legislation is outdated and unenforced.
    • Existing animal welfare initiatives within the Province are understandably stuck in emergency response mode unable to create sustainable solutions that protect animals in need over the long term.


    Paws for Hope Animal Foundation Partners with the BC SPCA to support low income families

    Vancouver, BC January 8 2016: Through a collaborative approach, Paws for Hope and the BC SPCA Vancouver Animal Hospital have formalized an agreement for referring cases from Paws for Hope’s no cost Vancouver animal health clinics and veterinary care funding program.

    Paws for Hope Animal Foundation’s mandate is to create sustainable animal welfare and purposeful companion animal protection in British Columbia. Meaningful partnerships within the animal welfare community are an essential component to making this happen.

    We are very pleased to be partnering with the BC SPCA to provide emergent veterinary care support to the pets whose families need financial assistance,” says Board President, Dr. Shawn Llewellyn, “by working together we can make tremendous strides in sustainable animal welfare.”
