We promote and foster animal welfare through the provision of sanctuary, education and rescue.
Critteraid, the Summerland Cat Sanctuary, was established in 1991 to provide refuge for unwanted, abused, abandoned and feral cats. The sanctuary is based on a ten acre farm in Summerland, BC where cats, guinea pigs, and livestock are provided sanctuary for the time they stay with us. For some, that is forever.
We are committed to keeping their lives free from anxiety, providing a healthy environment and medical attention and encouraging adoption to responsible caring human beings.
Critteraid is not a high profile animal group. We like to consider ourselves small but mighty! Critteraid volunteers work steadfastly to help animals and people with animals at the very grassroots level of our local communities.
Critteraid is a registered charity that operates entirely on donations and grants.
