Aide For Paws Rescue Society

Abbotsford, BC

Our Mission

Aide For Paws & Rescue Society is a small, foster based rescue located just outside Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. We work primarily with special needs & senior animals as these animals, though they are every bit as amazing as your average pet, are often overlooked and considered less desirable to adoptive families.

In order to highlight our special needs & senior animals we have dubbed them our "Magical Unicorns" to help showcase them and show everyone they are just as wonderful & deserving of a new home.

Our unicorns have varying degrees of special 'abilities' including hearing impairment, vision impairment, food allergies, epilepsy, obesity and even paralysis. Some of our Unicorns just need need a specialized food, or daily medication, to help keep them in tip top shape. All of these animals have overcome a challenge in life and are in need of a forever family who will love them unconditionally despite their medical conditions.

Are you the family they have been searching for?

Adoption Policy

Adoption applications can be found on our website at

Please note that we do not process adoption applications on a 1st-come-1st-served basis. Our adoptions team reviews all applications and will be in touch with applicants we feel would best suit each individual animal's needs.

Our rescue completes personal reference checks, reference checks from your veterinarian, as well as reference/strata checks for any applicant who rents and/or lives within a Strata property to ensure a new pet will be welcome & there are no restrictions (size, breed & # of pets allowed).

Once reference checks have been completed our adoptions team will perform a home check followed by meet and greets with pre-approved potential adoptive families.

Ultimately we allow our animals to choose their forever home. This is determined by the interactions with each family.

All of our dogs are then placed on a 2 week foster to adopt trial before making the final decision to adopt. We want to make sure that all of our animals are the best possible match for each individual family, their home, as well as their lifestyle.

Please note this adoption process might take several weeks to complete depending on how many applications are received per pet as well as the time needed to contact each of your references.
