Noa Nichol, a writer and editor, has been working in Canadian print and online media – including such pet-focused publications as Modern Dog and Modern Cat magazines – for more than 15 years. In 2016, while on maternity leave from her editor role at Vancouver-based Glacier Media, she launched a website, Adopteez, which gives responsible shelters and rescue groups additional communications tools, free of charge, with which to network animals seeking adoption. Joining the Paws for Hope board of directors this past fall has given her further opportunity to make a real difference to a cause that’s close to her heart, and she looks forward to supporting the organization’s work, helping to strengthen and empower the existing animal welfare and support system in place within B.C., in 2017 and beyond.
One example of the important work being done by Paws for Hope is the creation of a provincial Animal Welfare Advisory Network, meant to enable organizations across British Columbia to work together to fund and implement strategies that address challenges associated with pet abandonment, abuse and overpopulation (this following Paws for Hope’s 2016 “A Snapshot of Companion Animal Welfare in B.C.” report and a subsequent stakeholders meeting). The strides that can be made via a strong partnership between animal welfare and rescue organizations will serve to create a more sustainable and accountable animal welfare system in B.C.
