VPAS will be attending the Vancouver Island Pet Expo this year and we'd love to see you there. The Vancouver Island Pet Expo is the largest gathering of pet owners on Vancouver Island. It promotes responsible pet ownership and helps draw attention to abandoned pets available for adoption. Many pet-related businesses, adoption societies, and retailers will be there.

The VPAS booth will feature photos & bios of our adoptable pets, some great/unique fundraising items for sale, info & volunteers to help you find out how you can become an adopter, a foster parent, or a volunteer.

Temporary Foster Home Urgently Needed!

Temporary Foster Home Urgently Needed!

Temporary foster home urgently needed for a Boxer X in Victoria! Norman needs a foster home ASAP with someone who is home for much of the day. He has separation anxiety and does not like to be left alone. Norm gets along well with small dogs (and loves to have them around), but he's nervous around dogs larger than himself. He cannot be in a home with cats. For more information, or if you can provide Norman with a temporary foster home, please contact
