No-kill shelter that deals mostly with cats, but some dogs

But the house built in 1958 is run-down and has some electrical issues — not quite the right place for no-kill cat shelter Furry Friends. The nonprofit group has rented the central Vancouver house for about 2 1/2 years from a former volunteer who moved to Arizona.

Broken Promises Rescue is a volunteer run, not-for-profit, animal rescue organization located in the lower Vancouver Island. We are a group of long time rescuers that have come together to focus on improving the lives of unwanted, neglected and orphaned animals on Vancouver Island (as well as remote communities and other areas of B.C. if our resources allow us to.) Currently we are seeing many pets overlooked in the shelter system because they have less than desirable qualities. They may have medical or behavioral issues or they may simply be the wrong color, age or breed. At Broken Promise Rescue we believe all animals deserve to experience a life without pain, loneliness or hunger and want them to know what it feels like to be loved and cherished, despite appearance, age or medical condition.

Rescue, foster care, adoption education.

Adopt a cat from Furry Friends, a small, hands-on cat rescue organization Most of the animals we have are dogs. But we also have rabbits, hamsters, budgies, and sometimes a guinea pig or even chickens! If you are looking for a smaller pet, contact us to see what we have available. (If you want to adopt a cat, contact Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association, other local municipal shelters or the BCSPCA.)

Since our opening on January 01, 2002, numerous improvements have been made at our District of North Vancouver Animal Welfare Shelter facility. Our shelter houses animals in a few different areas. For our feline guests they stay in the "Community Cat Courtyard", where cats can enjoy the outdoors in a secure environment. The "Bunny Run" allows rabbits to leave their condos to play outside in warm weather. In addition to these areas, the Shelter has a "Singles Room" that holds strays pending a search for their owner, and an "Isolation Room" for sick or pregnant animals.
