Sometimes happy endings are not possible.

We wanted to update you on Fraser, the injured Shepherd-cross who came into care several weeks ago. Unfortunately, Fraser’s litany of injuries and indignities could not be overcome and we said a peaceful and humane goodbye to him on (date). Fraser had survived being dragged behind a truck, being shot multiple times, and being sprayed with porcupine quills – which turned out to be the one insurmountable injury as the quills had migrated into his brain, spine and lungs. At VHS we always step up to help the injured or sick animals often left behind in rescue circles. Most of the time, we have happy endings, but sometimes there is heartbreak. Thank you to all our friends and donors whose support allows us to save so many – the vast majority of which have happy endings. We don’t always know what the outcome will be, but we believe in giving all animals a second chance.

You are the lifeblood of our work on behalf of animals.

You are the lifeblood of our work on behalf of animals.

As a non-profit organization, the Victoria Humane Society depends entirely on donations from kind-hearted people like you. Every month, we rescue literally dozens of dogs and cats, and sometimes other small animals, many from horrific circumstances such as neglect, starvation and abuse. The associated costs of rescue are significant, from arranging transportation for the animals out of remote communities and into our care, to emergency medical bills to save animals lives, to spay and neuter costs, vaccinations, hospitalizations, medications and on-going food costs and incidentals. Monthly and one-time donors are literally our most critical form of support. We thank you for donating what you can today.
