Five ways you can support Vancouver Humane!

Vancouver Humane receives no government funding and therefore we rely on donations from supporters like you. Your donation, however large or small makes a real difference to our work for animals. Here are just five ways that you can support us throughout the year.

Free Wills Month

Are you an animal lover aged 55 or over? Starting May 1, you have a unique opportunity to make a new will or revise your current will, for free! We are participating in a campaign that allows you to provide for your loved ones and make a significant contribution to charity, if you choose to do so. There is absolutely no obligation to include a charity in order to participate, however, it’s our hope that you might use this opportunity to let your love of animals live on by helping us to continue our work.

You can contact one of the law firms listed on the website anytime during May to request an appointment. And although the campaign runs from May 1 to May 31, your will does not need to be completed in that time frame. To find out more information, please visit the Free Wills website.


Donating to Vancouver Humane just got a whole lot eco-friendlier! We’ve registered with Return-It, meaning every time you return your recyclable beverage containers to a Return-it depot, you can choose to donate your proceeds to us!

Find your local depot and a list of recyclable containers on the website. Bag up your items in blue or clear recycling bags, which can be purchased at most grocers, drug and hardware stores. There’s no need to sort your containers.

When it comes to returning your recyclables, simply enter our account number 604 266 9744 (the same as our telephone number) on the checkout screen at your depot and select how many bags you have to recycle. A bar coded sticker will be printed, which you can add to your bag.

Once Return-it has processed your bags, the funds raised from your recyclables will be donated directly to our Vancouver Humane account.

Fundraise for us

You can fundraise for us by hosting an event at your school, work place or even just at home! Hold a vegan bake sale or dinner party or get active with a sponsored walk or run.

Do you have a Birthday or special occasion coming up? Why not ask friends and family to donate to us in honour of your special occasion!

We’re also looking for support from local businesses. Place a Vancouver Humane coin box at your checkout, donate to us through your payroll or challenge your employer to match your donation to us.

Volunteer your time

Donating to Vancouver Humane doesn’t have to just be financially. Donate your time to us! We are always in need of volunteers for outreach, particularly for our Go Veg project. Click here to find out more and fill out an application.

Attend an event

We host and table at several events throughout the year. These are regularly updated on our website. Check back for updates on what’s happening.
