    B.C. charity seeks to help overburdened animal welfare system

    Maple Ridge, B.C.: Paws for Hope Animal Foundation is trying to ease the overburdened animal welfare system by allowing pets to stay with their owners.

    The charity, founded in 2011, is asking for donations towards its programs which help avoid animals being surrendered unnecessarily.

    “We know that more animals suffer from a lack of access to veterinary care, than intentional acts of cruelty,” says Executive Director Kathy Powelson.
