RAPS Cat Sanctuary – Canada’s largest! – is home to hundreds of mostly unadoptable cats, many of whom would have faced euthanasia in other jurisdictions.
RAPS unites homeless animals with loving people. We also educate young people and the public about the joys and responsibilities of companion animals.LEARN MORE
We are reimagining veterinary care through an affordable, community-owned, not-for-profit model that makes an animal’s well-being – not profit – the bottom line.
RAPS operates two thrift stores in the Metro Vancouver region. Proceeds from the sale of donated items at our thrift stores goes to supporting all RAPS initiatives.
RAPS unites companion animals with forever homes. If you are considering adding a family member, learn about what you should consider, how to prepare and meet adoptable animals who want to take their place at the heart of a loving household.
Adopting a pet is a commitment for the lifetime of the animal. Sometimes, people may be unable to fulfill this commitment. It is vital that the animal be surrendered to a legitimate agency that will ensure their well-being and rehome them.LEARN MORE
Our fostering network is central to RAPS’ no-kill promise. We are always seeking loving, patient households to temporarily rehome animals who need socialization or rehabilitation and can help prepare them for the next phase of their lives.
RAPS is all about the animals. But everything we do is possible because of a small army of dedicated humans who deliver individualized care to thousands of animals every year. If helping animals is your life’s passion, we want you to join us!
RAPS is an enviable place to work. We attract team members who are driven to save and improve the lives of animals and who are inspired by our no-kill promise. We are always looking for talented, dedicated people for a vast range of roles.LEARN MORE
Whatever your capacity or talents, you can help us fulfill our mission. Giving of your time, your skills or your charitable donations allows us to keep our no-kill promise. Individuals of every age and ability can make a powerful contribution!
