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 each year through the Purdy's Holiday Program allow us to provide much needed medical care for homeless pets in need.
On behalf of everyone at Victoria Pet Adoption Society we'd like to thank you for choosing to adopt one of our wonderful pets. 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 the home and have not yet settled in.
Did you know that we have a Wish List? Caring for all kinds of animals takes a lot of work and we are always fundraising so that we can provide our pets with the things that they need. Help us reduce our costs by donating something from our wish list.
Items that we are currently in need of are:
-Pill Pockets (chicken flavour)
-Cat Dancer cat toys
-Canned Kitten Food (all types)
-Collapsing Dog Crates
-Folding Fences (Exercise Pens)
-Pop-up Cat Tents (available at some dollar stores)
-Cat Litter (World's Best is our favourite)
