Here is Moonlight Dog Cafe's list of pet rescues and shelters that we have worked with or heard good stuff about. Looking for a new cat or dog in Vancouver, reach out to the list below to see if you can adopt a pet.
The Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association (VOKRA) is a no-kill, non-profit, registered charity dedicated to the rescue of cats in the Lower Mainland. VOKRA does not have a shelter. Instead, they provide over 350 individual foster homes throughout the Lower Mainland. In a home environment, their cats are safe and well socialized, with lots of love and attention. VOKRA covers all of the costs and provides ongoing support to foster families. This is by far the best rescue group we have seen in Vancouver.

Regional Animal Protection Society is the City of Richmond's Animal Shelter. RAPS is a registered charity and is a no-kill organization. We've donated a number of items as well as food to them in the past and they are amazing at taking everything and using it for the animals in need. They've never turned away a donation that we've brought in as they use everything they can get to help.
