RAPS Regional Animal Hospital: Great Care and a Great Cause!

RAPS is opening a new Regional Animal Hospital! Not only can you access the finest in veterinary care for your companion animal, but all revenue generated goes into helping more animals in our community.

RAPS is giving away hundreds of thousands of dollars in services to new registrants of our Animal Hospital. Be one of the first to register your animal and you can win one of the many amazing prizes RAPS is offering.

The Regional Animal Hospital is slated to open by the end of 2017 in sparkling new premises in the Richmond Auto Mall – thanks to the generosity of our community partners at the Applewood Auto Group!

Our team of veterinarians and staff, along with partner specialists, will offer first-rate health care that includes the best in animal care.

At full capacity, we intend to have five full-time veterinarians and 10 supporting staff, as well as dozens of professional volunteers to meet the needs and requirements of our valued clients.

RAPS’ goal is to provide the best animal care and customer service.

But the Regional Animal Hospital is also a social enterprise run by RAPS. That means the fees you pay go into supporting homeless, abandoned, endangered and abused animals in our community.

By registering your pet with the Regional Animal Hospital, you support:

  • All the work RAPS does with animals at the City Shelter and the RAPS Cat Sanctuary
  • Improving the lives of the animals and people in our community
  • Spaying and neutering of animals to prevent overpopulation
  • An animal Food Bank for individuals and families with low incomes
  • Subsidized veterinary care for companion animals of families in need
  • Expansion of the RAPS Cat Sanctuary
  • Creation of a Dog Sanctuary and a Rabbit Sanctuary

RAPS is here for you.

Do you want the best veterinary care for your animal – and the best for animals in need? Please support the RAPS Regional Animal Hospital.


Register your pets now and we will notify you when we’re ready to welcome you to Metro Vancouver’s newest animal hospital – and the only one operated by a community-supported social enterprise NO-KILL animal organization with Sanctuaries.


Your pet will receive a free general examination and there are tens of thousands of dollars worth of veterinary care available to be won – only for the first 1,000 people who register before December 31! (Stay tuned.)
