GVAC is 100% volunteer run and could always use your support
GVAC is one of only four groups in the Greater Victoria area that provides funding for vet care for low income families. When you donate, you directly touch the lives of animals and families in need.
GVAC helps over 1,500 companion animals each year and we can always use your support to help even more.
