Smiles & Cries Rescue Society is an all breed, volunteer based organization serving the greater Vancouver Area, dedicated to re-homing local dogs in need and saving homeless or abandoned dogs domestically within Canada.
We strive to assist with the overpopulation of dogs from other provinces that have compelling situations where they are in danger of abuse, neglect or euthanasia.
Smiles & Cries Rescue Society places dogs into temporary foster homes, where they are socialized, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and treated for any medical or behavioral conditions limiting their adoptability.
Founded in 2018, Our ultimate goal is to create a better world, where all dogs have loving, permanent homes and where no good natured dogs, no matter what their age or breed, are killed for any reason. Whether they are considered to be a surplus or an un-adoptable dog.
