As an organization trying to create sustainable animal welfare in B.C. by strengthening and empowering the existing support infrastructure, we work closely with the following established organizations in BC to help animals in need. Our goal is to step up and fill the gaps with our own direct animal assistance and educational programs while assisting these organizations and those they support in the process.
Better Together Partners
These are the organizations we work with to provide vet services, pet grooming, and pet food, bedding, and other supplies to low-income pet guardians in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside and New Westminster.

Directions Youth Services Center
Directions Youth Services Centre, operated by Family Services of Greater Vancouver, provides Vancouver’s homeless youth and youth at-risk with a single entry point to access the tools, support, and guidance they so desperately need to go about making healthy, positive changes in their lives. Directions strives to be accessible to all youth, regardless of their circumstances and fosters a culture of respect. Directions Youth Services Centre is working closely with the community to develop solutions to end youth homelessness in Vancouver and to change the community’s perception of street-involved youth.

Seniors Services Society (SSS) is an amalgamation of the Seniors Housing Information Program Society and the Western Society for Seniors Citizens Services. SSS was incorporated in February 2006 and now offers over fifty years of combined experience serving seniors in the BC Lower Mainland. Our society is proud to continue a strong legacy of volunteerism and is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. The society offers support and information for seniors in three distinct areas: Support Services for seniors living in New Westminster; Housing Services for seniors province wide; and information for seniors and service providers throughout the Lower Mainland via our Community Education department.
