Isabelle came to RAPS around Christmas 2016, having been severely burned in a house fire. Her people did not have the resources to pay for her care and, in almost any other jurisdiction, Isabelle would have been euthanized.
RAPS is a NO-KILL organization and we knew that Isabelle could be saved. Through media attention and the powerful network of RAPS supporters, we raised the funds to provide Isabelle with the surgeries and other medical care she needed.
Isabelle’s case is extreme. But she demonstrates our commitment to caring for all animals. Under RAPS’ care, no animal is ever euthanized due to lack of space, treatable illness, physical defect, or solvable behavioural or socialization issues.
This NO-KILL ethos is also the reasons RAPS is an admired community agency and accounts for why we attract the grassroots support we do from animal-loving people.
Everything we do is possible because of the support of friends like you.

Pet insurance may seem like a frill. But the peace of mind you have by knowing that veterinary expenses will not cause a sudden hardship – and either force you to make a terrible choice or delay seeking necessary vet care until it’s too late – is a price worth paying. ow.ly/IYsU30bOSJ1 ...
