Welcome to BC Pets and Friends!

Way to go, Team Pets and Friends!

Team Pets and Friends crosses the finish line while raising crucial funds, spreading the word and sharing ‘puppy therapy’

A huge thank you to Team Pets and Friends for making this year’s Scotiabank Charity Challenge a big success! We couldn’t have done it without your support, whether you helped out at our booth, walked or ran the Half Marathon or 5k or donated to our team. Way to go!

To date, we’ve officially reached 72% of our goal, having raised $5,745.00 for our Pet Therapy Program. If you’d like to support Pets and Friends, there’s still time! Donations are being accepted through July 23rd. Every dollar counts and every donation of $20.00 or more receives a tax receipt. Go Team Go! To make a donation or check out our progress, click here.

If you have any questions about how you can help Pets and Friends reach our goal, please contact Lauren Salmon at lauren@petsandfriends.org.


Want to know more about how to get involved with BC Pets and Friends as a Pet Therapy Team?

Great! We are always looking for new volunteers to help us bring the joy and comfort of animal
companionship to persons living in care facilities and to people in other health care and
educational settings in the Lower Mainland. As a first step, we recommend that you read all
about what our screening and orientation process looks like here. If you think you are able to
commit to the screening and training process, and to regular visits for at least one (1) year, please
click here to be notified when we’re recruiting pet therapy teams and/or email us at info@petsandfriends.org to get started!
