VHS Animals

Open arms for animals in need.

The Victoria Humane Society is involved with animal welfare at many levels in the Victoria region and across the province. From heroic acts of rescue, to conducting spay and neuter clinics in remote communities, to ongoing fundraising events, we step up for animals in every possible way. Through a unique network of volunteers and foster homes, the animals that come into our care are placed with qualified and compassionate individuals before they transition to permanent homes. This provides adopting families with an insight into each animal’s unique personality and suitability for their home.

Our Animals

The Victoria Humane Society accepts dogs, cats and small animals from Victoria, Vancouver Island and across BC, who have been abandoned, mistreated or can longer be cared for by their owners . In some instances, we partner with other rescue organizations to help save animals in dire need.

Almost all of the adopting families and individuals are from the Greater Victoria/Vancouver Island region.

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.
