The Okanagan Humane Society says it will help more than 1,400 animals in 2021 and will break that record in 2022.
In a news release, the charity said there will be a sharp increase in animal needs in the Okanagan Valley in 2022. He also said he was answering as many calls as he could, thanks to the support of the community.
“The busiest in terms of rescuing the most animals, sterilizing and neutering the most animal pets, cats and dogs, our adoptions have also gone wildfire. Adoption has been a blast,” said OHS Volunteer President Romany Runnalls.

Runnalls told Global News there was a 42% increase in rescue programs and a 31% increase in adoptions.
She said the model works and is being implemented across networks from Osoyoos to Shuswap. Now in 2023, Runnals says he’s preparing for a busy New Year.
“We are trying to encourage people to prepare their animals for spaying and neutering. We will make 2023 our biggest and best year yet to rehabilitate as many animals as possible in our communities. We want to,” said Runnalls.

OHS fund development advisor Marni Adams said that without the volunteers’ dedication and donations to the community, we would not be able to do what they are doing.
The charity also thinks 2023 will be a very busy year for them.
“We receive no government funding other than the BC Community Gaming Grant and rely on community support,” said Adams.
