VHS encourages individuals, businesses and government to take responsibility for the welfare and rights of animals affected by human activities.
About VANCOUVER HUMANE SOCIETY
The Vancouver Humane Society is an animal charity working locally, provincially and nationally and funded primarily by public donations. We do not operate an animal shelter; rather we work on the underlying problems of animal abuse by exposing animal cruelty to the public and informing individuals how their choices impact animals.
Our primary areas of work are: animals in entertainment (zoos, rodeos, circuses, the film industry, sled dog operations); farmed animals (such as caged egg-laying hens, "broiler" or "meat" chickens, and other intensive confinement systems via our 'Meatless Monday' and goveg.ca projects); and companion animals, including spay/neuter and emergency veterinary medical assistance for pet guardians on limited income.
VHS is one of the few animal organizations that encourages vegetarianism and veganism, as not eating animals is the most effective way to stop animal suffering."
