Rescues & Charities

Thank you for continuing to help us raise donations for local rescues and charities. Learn about who we've donated to in the past and about organizations we look forward to donating too in the future.

Charlie’s Pet Food Bank by BCSPCA

Charlie’s pet food bank provides free and low-cost pet services for people who are homeless, living outdoors, low-income and senior pet guardians in downtown Vancouver.

This community-based initiative was created to improve the lives of pets living in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Launched in 2000 by the BC SPCA’s Chief Animal Health Officer at the time, Dr. Jamie Lawson, and the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, Charlie’s is named after a starving dog that came into our animal hospital in critical condition. Sadly, we weren’t able to save Charlie, and he passed away after three weeks of intensive care.

Furever Freed Dog Rescue

Furever Freed Dog Rescue is a non-profit rescue group of volunteers located in Langley, British Columbia. Formed in 2013 by Lisa Gaye, Furever Freed has saved the lives of over 3500 dogs, thanks to the effort and work of our dedicated volunteers, our amazing rescue partners in Mexico, Korea, and the US, and the escorts that assist in transporting the dogs.


Furever Freed is also grateful for the love, support and compassion of families in British Columbia, who have chosen to adopt a rescue dog.  

The Rescue Chain


The Rescue Chain Foundation is a not-for-profit organization committed to reducing pet overpopulation and suffering of dogs through spay and neuter clinics. Formally known as CAARE Rescue, they decided to address the root cause and with the mission to hopefully reduce the need for rescues by organizing and funding spay and neuter clinics in communities most in need. 

Senior Animals In Need Today Society

SAINTS is an end-of-life sanctuary for senior and special needs animals that have nowhere else to go. They provide a special place for senior animals to be loved, cherished, and receive proper medical care for the rest of their days. All animals deserve to have hope for a better tomorrow.

Because of infirmities and physical challenges, many homeless senior and special needs animals have very little chance of finding a new home. Through SAINTS dedicated staff and volunteers work tirelessly to find these special animals a place to finish their journey in comfort and in love.
