The First Rescue of 2022

It’s a Happy New Year for 24 dogs and puppies who were saved from freezing by a team of incredible volunteers.

Not blizzards, nor icy roads. Not freezing temperatures or ice slicked highways. Not multiple car crashes nor road closures. None of these things (and many more obstacles) were able to stop our amazing drivers from saving lives.
Thank you to Kevin Hughes and David Bigelow who went above and beyond and made the trip to Calgary and back, and April Bower who drove from Regina to Calgary…all to save 22 lives.
The temperatures were as low as 40 below and April rescued these sweeties and brought them to her home. Nursed them (and even had six puppies born in her home) and with a house full of dogs and pups, she cared for them. April, you are a true hero! Arrangements were hastily made to get them to us and the transport began (on possibly the worst weather days we have had) but our amazing drivers worked hard to get these animals here safely.
They arrived on the 6 o’clock ferry to Victoria on January 3, and are all now in their foster homes and will be taking time to decompress and learn about their new lives in beautiful Victoria.
They will be posted for adoption once they have had time to decompress and adjust to their new life, and we need to get them all vetted and assessed.
So please don’t send questions as we cannot answer any until this happens. Once they are ready we will post them.
A big shout out to our amazing fosters. We really could not continue to say yes to incoming animals if YOU didn’t say yes!
It Takes a Village!

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.
