Happy Giving Tuesday

 I know that our group page has been rather quiet lately, with fewer dogs coming in compared to before. However, we currently have some dogs in desperate need of homes. Despite this our focus for Giving Tuesday is not on our rescue efforts but rather on giving back to our local community. To continue our tradition, our volunteers are gathering donations for Charlie's Food pet food bank in Downtown Eastside.

Charlie's Food provides free and low-cost pet services for individuals who are homeless, living outdoors, low-income, and senior pet guardians in Downtown Vancouver. The initiative was established to enhance the lives of pets in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside and is named after a malnourished dog named Charlie. Unfortunately, despite three weeks of intensive care at the SPCA hospital, Charlie couldn't be saved and passed away.

For this Giving Tuesday, we encourage you to consider making a donation to RAB's annual support of Charlie's pet food bank. You can contribute directly through e-transfer at or via Paypal.

Donations of $25 or more will receive a tax receipt.

Your support means a lot to us, and together, we can make a positive impact. Thank you!

Available for Adoption - Diesel (UPDATE ADOPTED)



We are looking for a permanent home for this boy.  This is our goal.   But if you can help by fostering that would be great too.   We need a very special family for this boy. Someone whose very patient and wants to continue training with Diesel. He has come leaps and bounds since he first came to our rescue but still has a way to go. He is loving and sweet but is a handful.   Since being in the rescue, his sweet moments are showing more than his crazy moments.  But it is going to take work to get him the rest of the way.  RAB will be providing training support for Diesel.    He is smart and wants to be a good boy but sometimes he forgets the way.  

Diesel is 1 years old and cute and adorable.  He is getting better everyday on walks but still gets frustrated.  We know what works for him and we have a plan.  He just needs to find his person and for them to follow through and commit to the plan.  Diesel needs a confident owner because if you give this boy an inch he will take you 100 miles.  He is active and full of energy.  Needs a lifestyle with lots of exercise and mental stimulation.  Good with balanced dogs and unknown with cats.  At this time Diesel should not be in a home with children.  His perfect home would have a nice big back yard with lots of space to run. 

If you are serious about adopting him and are confident that you can continue with Diesel’s journey please contact us :

URGENT - Foster home needed


Bella has been adopted into an amazing home.



Can you foster Bella?
She’s not doing well in the shelter, please help we need to get her out.
Meet Bella!
Bella says "My name means beautiful in Italian and I was named perfectly because I am a BEE-YOO-TI-FUL lady!"

Bella came to Animal Services after her owner, sadly, passed away. She is a large girl who loves her food, the kennel staff, and pets and snuggles. Bella would do well in a home with large breed experience that can manage her weight. We are working on her weight so that she can lose a few pounds, Bella will also need an experienced home with NO other pets, and one that can manage her reactivity to dogs and other animals. This dear girl would love to be a walking partner to her very special adult human and a couch potato in your home. Do you have the experience to take care of this sweet girl? We would love to hear from you.

Please send your expression of interest via the link on this site and we will forward you our application.
