Welcome to Small Animal Rescue

The Small Animal Rescue Society of BC is a registered society run by volunteers. Our primary focus is to rescue and rehome small animals in need. Neglected, injured and abandoned animals are our main priority.

Small Animal Rescue works to provide a safe haven for small animals in need while promoting responsible pet guardianship through education, advocacy, and spay/neuter initiatives.

SOLD OUT – thank you everyone!!

March 10th, 2018

A big warm THANK-YOU to YVR POP CHOIR for making SARS BC the charity of choice for their upcoming benefit concert on April 7th.

It is SOLD OUT which means lots of support for our animals.

Please give them a like/follow and make sure to support their shows in the future.

As a rescue working with less well-known/popular pets, fundraising year after year can be challenging to say the least. That is why we are so grateful to these wonderful people for choosing to support us. This event will not only raise funds but also awareness about small animal rescue and adoption.

For a small, volunteer-run rescue like us, this is amazing. Thank-you.
