RCHS announces a change in direction

We wish to advise all our supporters of a change in our scope of operations effective October 30,2019.

We have been fortunate to have had a donated cat shelter space in New Westminster since the spring of 2006 and hundreds of volunteers to donate their time and efforts to give so many cats the care they deserve until we were able to place them in homes. And now -- to coincide with the completion of the new City of New Westminster shelter on Boyne Street in Queensborough -- we have closed our cat shelter as of October 30, 2019. The New Westminster shelter offers a modern and comfortable place with safeguards and space to prevent outbreaks of disease which were, unfortunately, lacking at our shelter.
