Adopt a pet in the City of Vancouver

Adopt a pet

Because of the Raymur Pump Station upgrades, Raymur Avenue will be closed to vehicle traffic at Malkin Avenue. Access to Animal Services will be retained through Raymur Avenue.

Street parking is limited on Raymur Avenue and Malkin Avenue. We recommend parking on neighbouring streets.

Want to adopt a pet and give them a "forever" home? We're thrilled! Our pro-adoption shelter places 200 to 300 dogs and small animals every year with families and homes that best meet the needs of the animals.
