Our aim is to find the best homes possible for dogs who have been neglected, abused, injured or surrendered for euthanization.
A Voice4Paws Canine Rescue Society is a not-for-profit, all-breed, no-kill rescue organization with foster homes located throughout Metro Vancouver, BC, Canada.
We are a BC Registered Non-Profit Society with a small group of dedicated volunteers. Our focus is on
- rescuing and rehabilitating homeless, at-risk and injured dogs
- assisting low-income dog and cat guardians
- educating the public on responsible dog guardianship
A Voice4Paws does not have a facility or shelter to house our rescues. We are 100% reliant on volunteer foster homes to care for and evaluate our dogs as they transition to their forever homes. For more information on becoming a foster parent(s) please visit Fostering.
Through proper vetting and training, we set up our dogs and their new families for success. Each dog that comes into rescue is evaluated and a long-term plan is put in place for their health and overall well-being.
We generally do not adopt our dogs out right away. A foster-to-adopt period is required to ensure that the match is ideal for the dog and the new adoptive guardian(s).
