A Shelter Full of Hope and Promise

Critical Care Medical Fund

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.


Our Story:

We are only 15 weeks old and already we have had to fight for our lives. We were surrendered to WAG, but despite having been seen by a vet with their previous owners, we were not vaccinated. Very shortly after arriving at WAG, we both became very sick.

After admitting them to Twin Trees Veterinary Clinic' s emergency, it was determined that we were both were positive for the Parvo Virus, a deadly disease to puppies and senior dogs that have not been vaccinated, as we should have been.

We were hospitalized overnight at WAG, and dedicated WAG staff drove in throughout the night to care for us. The next morning we were taken by a volunteer to Eagleview Veterinary Hospital in Squamish to receive treatment, fluids, medication, and monitoring for the rest of the week.

Thanks to the amazing care of the WAG staff, volunteers, and these amazing vet clinics, we have responded well to treatment are on the road to recovery!

WAG needs your help to cover the medical bills of us neglected sisters, so they are asking for your help in Saving the Sisters!

My Story:

I came to WAG very sick - I was on the brink of a diabetic coma. Luckily they were able to diagnose me and give me the care I needed to recover - No one knew I had been diabetic! Unfortunately I lost my eyesight, but that has not stopped me from doing much! 

I have now regulated my insulin and put back on all the weight I has lost, so now I am a sleek, beautiful and healthy girl, looking for a home to retire in.

Where your donation will go:

My insulin
Specialty food (D/M) 

Your donation will go towards my life saving insulin and supplies, and my continued care while at WAG. Thankfully at WAG, there is no time limit for me!


My Story:

Mindy was a stray in Whistler for many years and was being fed by some kind neighbors. One day it was reported that she was most likely pregnant. Before WAG could get to her, she had her babies in a cardboard box! Thankfully we brought the whole family inside to keep them safe from predators and warm on those chilly nights.

All of Mindy's kittens have been adopted. Now we are hoping to teach her humans can be friends! She is also looking for a Foster Home...
