UPDATE: We have had a huge outpouring of support for these cats and are currently working our way through foster home applications. Thank you to everyone who has shared this post to help spread the word, and to all of those who have offered to open their homes to these cats! Victoria pet-lovers are amazing <3
If you live in the Victoria area and would be interested in fostering a cat (or two) short term, please let us know. There are a large number of cats in a desperate situation that need our help. Please share!
For the safety of the animals in our care, we have placed a hold on all adoptions until after the Halloween weekend. While Halloween is a lot of fun for children of all ages, the costumes, fireworks, decorations, and noises can be frightening for some pets, especially those that are new to a home and have not yet settled in.
Did you know that VPAS has an account at Return It Bottle Depot?
You can donate the value of your returnable cans and bottles to Victoria Pet Adoption Society by simply asking that your refund go onto our account (please ask before the clerk begins counting your bottles.) There are 3 Bottle Depots in Victoria that participate in the charity program: the Glanford Ave, Queens Ave, and Quadra Street locations.
Your support is very much appreciated :)
Purdy's Chocolates is a local (Vancouver, BC) chocolate company that strongly supports community programs in BC. Each year, Purdy's supports Victoria Pet Adoption Society by donating 25% of the value of all orders placed through the linked, customized website below, back to VPAS. The funds raised through the Purdy's Holiday Program allow us to provide much needed medical care for homeless pets that are waiting to find their happily-ever-after.
Join us in Oak Bay Village on October 31st for their annual Trick or Treat celebrations! Oak Bay Avenue will be closed to traffic as they host a variety of entertainment including stilt walking, juggling, poi spinning, fortune telling, and hula hoop performances to create a circus-like atmosphere. Live music will keep the ghosts, goblins and superheroes groovin’.
