// About Us

Big Heart works within the Province of British Columbia with a special focus on remote First Nations communities without a resident veterinarian. ┬áCommunities we work with include Waglisla (Bella Bella), Shearwater, Bella Coola, Wuikinuxw (Oweekeno) and Klemtu on the Central coast. We are funded 100% by generous donations from community members and supporters with proceeds going directly to the care and rehabilitation of companions in need of medical intervention, training and re-homing. Big Heart Rescue Society was formally organized as a non-profit charity (Canada Revenue Agency charity number: 877348508RR0001) in August 2002. Since this time many, many companion animals have been vaccinated, sterilized, vetted, fostered and adopted. Big Heart Rescue does not have a shelter facility. All companions in our care are in loving foster homes until they find the family that is a perfect match. If you’re interested in fostering or volunteering for Big Heart, please contact us at <bigheartrescue@gmail.com> or fill out an application now. Thanks for supporting Big Heart!


And thanks to Max’s family for letting us use his handsome face as part of our Big Heart logo!
