VPAS will be attending the Vancouver Island Pet Expo this year and we'd love to see you there. The Vancouver Island Pet Expo is the largest gathering of pet owners on Vancouver Island. It promotes responsible pet ownership and helps draw attention to abandoned pets available for adoption. Many pet-related businesses, adoption societies, and retailers will be there.
This is Chance. He came to us from animal control after being found as an injured stray. We think that poor Chance was hit by a car; he has a broken pelvis and some wounds on his left side & legs. The break on Chance's pelvis cannot be fixed by surgery so must heal on it's own, in time. At this point he cannot walk and has to pull himself and/or flop to get around but he is improving every day! Fortunately, his pain is well controlled and he is a very happy cat with a wonderful spirit. Chance loves every minute of attention and just purrs up a storm any time his foster mom is with him.
Each year, the Dean Park Estates Community hosts a massive garage sale, usually with nearly 100 houses involved. This year, Victoria Pet Adoption Society & United Hearts Animal Society will be participating in the garage sale together. We will have lots of great items for sale like: CDs/DVDs, books, games, household items, decorations, clothing, childrens toys and much, much more. Come on out, browse, take home some gems & support animal welfare initiatives in your community.
We will have coffee & pastries for sale in the morning so make us your first stop!
