RAPS  Regional Animal Protection Society operates the City of Richmond BC Animal Shelter & Canada's only cat sanctuary. When You Give ... They Live!


Nelson, a newborn kitten, was saved by a neighbourhood dog who found him alone and brought the little guy home to his owner. Nelson was found cold, dehydrated and he weighed only 64 grams. After a few weeks with his foster family Nelson is doing AMAZING! He now weighs 4oz (119 grams) and has developed some major cattitude when he doesn't get his milk on time!

Nelson lives because you give! Please help us continue to save animals just like Nelson by contributing to our Capital Campaign to complete the RAPS Regional Animal Hospital.

Can you donate items or services for a silent auction? The Regional Animal Protection Society (formerly the Richmond Animal Protection Society) is completing a new Regional Animal Hospital for the animals in RAPS' care and also generate revenue so RAPS can save and improve the lives of more animals than ever! RAPS is having a spectacular gala in October and is looking for silent auction items. Do you have something that could help raise money for this amazing cause? Contact vincent@rapsbc.com.

Sanford & Nesbitt are two of the cutest kittens you will ever see! These boys are playful, affectionate, and full of personality. Both kittens are outgoing and bold and would likely fit in well in any household. Sanford & Nesbitt are recently neutered and must be adopted together. If you're ready for countless hours of playtime, laughter, and cuddles then these are the boys for you! For more info, please contact the Shelter at 604-275-2036.

Maggie is an outgoing, friendly female tabby cat who prefers to live without other feline friends, Maggie absolutely loves all people! She is very affectionate and cuddly and will purr and headbutt her way into your heart. Maggie would love nothing more than to curl up on your lap and snuggle - she is an absolute darling! For more information on Maggie please call the shelter at (604) 275-2036, she is available for viewing at Bridgeport Petsmart in Richmond.

Roscoe is an outgoing and spunky boy who really enjoys exploring his surroundings – he absolutely loves climbing and jumping. He has a strong personality and is used to being the center of attention although he has adjusted well to living with the other cats in our communal cat room. We believe that Roscoe would adjust well to living with another feline friend who can give him his space. Roscoe is looking for a home where he can be the apple of your eye and keep you entertained for hours with his antics.

We promise to live up to your high expectations. RAPS has been nominated as Association of the Year for the Richmond Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards. Lots of achievements! Lots of animals still to care for!

Cocoa, RAPS’ designated Shelter Cat, has also become our Quality Control Officer! She loves to help our Animal Shelter staff receive and inspect donations. Looks like she approves!

RAPS needs you! We have accumulated many large items that need to be hauled away and are looking to the community for assistance with junk removal. Do you know someone who can help? Contact the shelter at (604) 275-2036

Did you know that the average cost to the RAPS Cat Sanctuary, per cat, is $20,000 dollars spent over their lifetime. RAPS considers this a small price to pay when compared to euthanasia due to lack of space. Every animal deserves to live. Please support RAPS so we can continue to save more cats through our Sanctuary model. They live because you give! (Link in bio!)
