Working Together to
Save Lives

The Community Coalition for Animal Welfare members collaborate in these key areas to improve the lives of companion animals in BC:

Humane Education : Schools, families and communities—saving lives starts with responsible pet guardianship. » Humane Education Resources

Spay/Neuter Clinics : Unwanted births are adding to the numbers of homeless companion animals each and every day. The answer to euthanasia and homelessness is prevention. » Spay/Neuter Model Programs

Foster Network : It is important for the emotional and physical well-being of all homeless companion animals to be in homes where they can heal and learn. » Building Your Foster Network

Adoption : Committed, loving people are ready to adopt homeless pets—a collection of successful adoption strategies, incuding creating a transport network. » Adoption Strategies (coming)

Legislation : Changes to animal welfare legislation at municipal, provincial and federal levels are long overdue. » Advocacy

Whatever it takes. » Learn more.

Northern BC Animal Care Initiative

Communities throughout the northern region of BC with limited or no access to veterinary and animal welfare support services are the focus of our first community-based pet care initiative. We hope to bring solutions through education, spay/neuter clinics, building foster networks, increasing adoptions and improving local bylaws.

Together We Can Make a Difference

Collaboration will be the key to success. Rescue organizations, shelters, veterinary professionals, educators, First Nations and volunteers working together to save lives and inspire compassion for pets in our communities. If you would like to participate in this important effort, please join us.
