ISLAND RESCUE VETERINARY SOCIETY
The IRVS aims to find and fund veterinary services for animal rescue organizations on Vancouver Island. Come volunteer with us or adopt a rescue animal today!
Increasing access to veterinary care
Veterinary staff shortages and an increase in household pets related to COVID-19 have made it harder to find verterinary care than ever before. This is a true for the general public, and even more so for non-profit societies that serve large numbers of animals with limited funds. Our society was created to help find space, time and staff to provide high volume, subsidized, primary healthcare for these rescues.
