GVAC was founded in 1973 and has since grown into a leader in our local animal rescue community. It was founded as a volunteer organization and continues to be run entirely by dedicated and loyal volunteers. Our goal is, and always will be, to put as close to 100% of all funds collected to the rescue and care of companion animals.

GVAC Rescue is dedicated to making a difference in the Greater Victoria area. It is our mandate to promote an enlightened and progressive program of animal rescue and welfare. We prioritize spaying and neutering, and work to help lessen the suffering of unwanted companion animals and whenever possible, find them loving forever homes.

Community is vital and working together is the key to success, whether it is with other rescue organizations or with people in the community who simply love animals and want to help.

Join us in making a difference in your community.  Give a voice to those who can’t speak for themselves.
