Volunteer your time by walking a dog

Donate and volunteer with Vancouver Animal Services

Animal Services accepts monetary donations, as well as donations of supplies for dogs and small animals. Monetary donations are used to help pay for veterinary care and supplies, particularly for stray animals that have extraordinary medical issues that must be treated before they are ready to be adopted.

Tax receipts can be issued for donations of $20.00 or more.

Volunteering at Animal Services

Not everyone can be a pet owner, but everyone can be a pet lover. Vancouver Animal Services often needs energetic, caring volunteers who want to spend time with our animals and/or educate the community about responsible pet ownership.

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.
