Critical Care Medical Program

WAG's Critical Care Program provides animals with funding for special medical needs. Many of the animals that arrive at WAG have sad and painful histories of abuse, injury, starvation or neglect. The Critical Care Program was developed to ensure there was money available to treat animals immediately and over the long term.  

These programs rely solely on your donations to exist - please consider donating to an animal in need today!

Ways to Donate to the Critical Care Fund:

  1. Donate ONLINE! You can choose which animal receives your donation by selecting their Fund.
  2. Donate by Credit card by calling the Shelter directly at 604.935.8364
  3. Mail in a cheque to : P.O. Box 274, Whistler, B.C. Canada V0N 1B0.
  4. Donate by CASH, Debit or Credit Card by dropping by the Shelter at 8000 Nesters, Rd., Whistler, during our Open Hours.

Please note: If donations for a specific animal exceed their medical expenses, the surplus will be added to our General Critical and Compassionate Care Fund, and help support other WAG animals with special medical needs.
