Help the RAPS Animal Hospital Open 24/7

When your pet needs care, they can’t wait.

We can turn the RAPS Animal Hospital into a 24/7 facility. Will you help?

Since last year, we have been incredibly fortunate to have the RAPS Animal Hospital to serve the community. This has allowed us to exponentially expand the work we do across British Columbia with animals and their people. The mission of the hospital is to provide exceptional healthcare for your pet, at the most affordable cost, while helping those in need based on ability to pay.

    Help us to help more. Please give.    

In the past 16 months of the hospital’s operations, we have provided more than $500,000 in fully or partially subsidized care for animals from other rescue organizations and in households with seniors, veterans, low incomes, single parents and others who needed assistance, as well as unclaimed animals requiring emergency surgeries to save their lives. This year, we hope to top $1 million in subsidized care, making us one of the largest animal healthcare organizations in British Columbia. All of this is possible because you have faith in RAPS and have assisted us in our mission.

But we need your support to realize our next goal. We want to make the RAPS Animal Hospital a 24/7 service, 365 days a year.

Imagine what this means in the lives of animals and their people in British Columbia! A 24/7 not-for-profit RAPS Animal Hospital would:

Be the only 24/7 not-for-profit animal hospital for your emergency needs, within 20 minutes from the vast majority of people in Metro Vancouver.
Save individual clients thousands of dollars compared with existing 24-hour emergency hospitals.
Eliminate the need to transfer animals for overnight care.
Continue to offer our affordable fees, monthly specials and interest-free payment plans for people in need, day and night.
Increase revenue, which will be reinvested into all of RAPS’ services, saving and improving the lives of even more animals!


That means a $1.1 million investment now has the potential to save British Columbians with pets tens of millions of dollars over the coming years – while simultaneously strengthening every area of RAPS’ operations. The RAPS Animal Hospital already has a convenient location and highly competitive fees. Now, we want to make those advantages available to you 24/7, which can potentially save you thousands of dollars in overnight care.

Do you agree that we should be available to you 24 hours a day? If so, we are asking for your one-time help to launch this important initiative.
