Establishing a shelter

A top priority for Victoria Humane Society is the establishment of a regional rescue and rehabilitation shelter. While we will always rely on a strong and valued network of foster homes, a permanent shelter would help VHS rescue more animals, reduce costs per animal, and provide a central location for social and physical rehabilitation and public adoption services. Our shelter vision is to create a truly “humane” shelter, where animals can co-exist and recover in a more normalized, quiet and less stressful environment, further preparing them for successful adoptions. Victoria Humane Society is currently looking for a property in the Greater Victoria region that is zoned for or can be rezoned to include “animal shelter” as a primary use.

If you would like to contribute major funds or a gift of property towards our future shelter, please contact victoriahumanesociety@shaw.ca.
