Fraser Valley Humane Society


Who We Are: The Fraser Valley Humane Society was first formed in the summer of 1999, when the Fraser Valley (BC, Canada) was put on flood alert.  With the cooperation of veterinary facilities and volunteers from the community, we were able to establish a telephone hot-line and database to register and coordinate foster homes for pets in need. This database was available to other areas as needed, and therefore a network of help was created.  The FVHS works to eliminate the endless suffering of strays and abandoned cats in our community. Our no kill centre provides a humane approach to animal welfare. For the health and safety of the cats ALL of our cats are Indoor Cats Only.

Seeking Volunteers / Participants: The Fraser Valley Humane Society operates 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We are in desperate need of volunteers who are able to schedule and commit to a few hours of their time per week.  Help is always greatly needed in a variety of ways. If you are interested and feel you may have something to offer we would love to hear from you. If you can help as a volunteer, you are dedicated to animal welfare, and want to make a real difference helping animals in the face of this challenge, do not hesitate to contact us.
