VICTORIA PET FOOD BANK & FERAL CAT REHABILITATION SOCIETY

We are a group of concerned citizens and animal lovers who came together to help the animals in need from our community. Our mission is to provide assistance to animals in distress and to support low income families with pet food contributions. Due to urban sprawl and to the actual economic crisis animal tragedies are dramatically increasing in our area. WE see cats abandoned and multiplying at an alarming rate in our rural lands and we are afraid that dogs will become the next victims.

Therefore, because the welfare of the animals in our backyards, bushes and populated or unpopulated areas relies exclusively on us, the people, our group decided to start a prevention program to help pet owners, a pet food bank. Abandoned, injured and/or hungry animals need all of us to interviene and help. Please, residents of Greater Victoria, join forces with us to assist the poor defenceless animals and the low income pet owners who love them! Donate to our cause or volunteer with us. The animals need you!

WHY IS A PET FOOD BANK URGENTLY NEEDED IN OUR REGION?

Abandoned animal are already a sad part of our daily reality.

We see animal tragedies from Victoria to Port Renfrew and by donating food and some medical care we can prevent them.

In the last years many among us have noticed how the economic global crisis is forcing families to abandon their beloved pets.
Tamed and inexperienced pets who used to sleep comfortably on the living-room's couch or on the children's bed are presently
living outdoors hungry and cold with no food or shelter to protect themselves from our damp climate.

WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN WHEN WE ARE GOING TO START SEEING SUFFERING DOGS ROAMING ON THE STREETS?

The pictures below are perfect examples of this new and sad reality for family pets. The difference with cats & dogs is that cats hide, but dogs will not. Do you know that all MLAS and SOOKE COUNCIL have preferred to ignore the problem when we addressed it to them?

feeding stations.

LET US KNOW IF YOU CAN HELP, PLEASE.

Our site will be updated regularly, this is just the beginning of our campaign to promote and portray
Sooke as an animal friendly town.

THE BASIC ITEMS NEEDED are found in our


Because we are just starting our foundation any contribution, big or small, will help our mission and will be really appreciated by abandoned animals and by low income families.

  • Help with spaying and neuter is urgent! We have several cat colonies to trap, spay-neuter, shelter, and keep feeding
    for year to come.
  • Help with the spay and neuter of dogs. In the last six months we have become aware of the lack of spay/neuter support for the dogs of individuals who are homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless.
  • Pet food, many low-income families cannot feed their pets and with your/our help we will prevent animals to be
    abandoned. Any little help will be well received and distributed.

  • Please, do not throw your pop and beer cans away! Any Bottle Depot accept donations in our behalf, or in Sooke they can be left in our bins at 2075 Otter Point Rd.

    "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated",
    preciously described Mahatma Ghandi.


    We can become a MODEL OF COMPASSION & RESPECT TOWARDS ANIMALS.
