Regional Animal Protection Society - RAPS Logo

The Regional Animal Protection Society – RAPS – is an independent, non-profit organization serving animals and their people. We are, very proudly, a no-kill animal care agency.  We independently operate one of North America’s largest cat sanctuaries, the RAPS Cat Sanctuary – a loving forever home to 400 cats. In addition, our RAPS Adoption Centre receives cats and kittens as owner-surrenders, from other rescue agencies & shelters and feral cats who have been trapped. These cats and kittens are available for adoption. The not-for-profit RAPS Animal Hospital opened in February 2018. The RAPS Animal Hospital is a full-service, community-supported veterinary hospital, owned and operated by the Regional Animal Protection Society. In addition, RAPS operates two RAPS Thrift Stores in Richmond as well as one in New Westminster.  All revenue from the thrift stores is reinvested to help save and improve the lives of animals and their people in our community.

We are proud to have served the animals and people of this city and region for over two decades.  We could not do what we do if not for the generous contribution of time, skill and caring of our extraordinary volunteers.

The best antidote I know for worry is work. The best cure for weariness is the challenge of helping someone who is even more tired. One of the great ironies of life is this: He or she who serves almost always benefits more than he or she who is served.
