Paws for Hope Animal Foundation

Coalition of BC Animal Welfare Organizations

To build a sustainable animal welfare system in B.C., Paws for Hope is spearheading the BC Animal Welfare Coalition, a network of organizations who will work together to create a more sustainable approach to animal welfare and vastly improved outcomes for animals in BC. Twenty-one organizations, including municipal and SPCA shelters, launched the coalition in 2016 with two primary purposes: 1. To create professional operational and practical standards for rescue organizations in BC 2. To enable organizations to work together to fund and implement regional or provincial strategies to address the greatest challenges we face that lead to pet abandonment, abuse, and overpopulation Through the Coalition we will work to make systemic change to our animal welfare system by: 1. Shifting societal values: a. Changing both how citizens in our communities care for their pets and how rescue and welfare organizations carryout their work b. Influencing legislation, bylaws, and regulations that govern animal welfare to ensure they are based on research and best practices 2. Increasing organizational capacity: a. Securing greater levels of funding and applying these on a broader scale to achieve the greatest impact b. Developing common practices and increasing knowledge of those working in animal welfare to ensure the highest standards of care for our pets 3. Reaching remote and under resourced communities
