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.
The Victoria Humane Society accepts dogs, cats, and small animals from Victoria, Vancouver Island, and across BC, who have been abandoned, mistreated or can no 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.
