Fostering an animal while it awaits a permanent home is incredibly rewarding – but it’s not always easy.
We were proud to attend the Victoria premiere of ‘Sled Dogs’ on May 9 — an important documentary which chronicles the plight of Whistler Sled Dogs that has also recently aired on CBC.
Working to help animals in remote communities is an important part of the VHS mandate. On the weekend of May 5-7, our Executive Director Penny Stone along with 2 vet volunteers and 3 vet assistant volunteers, attended a wellness clinic in Saik’uz (near Vanderhoof).
What could be more fun than a day with puppies! Thank you to all the volunteers who attended and to the Westshore Town Centre for providing the space for a very successful puppy meet and greet April 30 and 31.
Whether we are funding surgery for an injured dog in our care, or arranging transportation for litters of rescued puppies or kittens from remote communities, the Victoria Humane Society has a major financial load to bear that is not covered by simple adoption fees.
Finding foster homes is critical to the success of the Victoria Humane Society. And right now we need more foster homes! So if this interests you, please fill out the foster application.
