Support pets in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside with OPS

The Overdose Prevention Society offers volunteer-based services and lifeguard stations out of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside neighbourhood. From harm reduction supplies and Narcan training, to sterile injection sites and peer counselling, the OPS provides a safe environment for the city’s homeless and street entrenched.

“At the Vancouver Overdose Prevention Society, we see a lot of dogs come through our door. Sometimes the dogs need medical attention that costs money. So, this year we made a calendar to celebrate our furry heroes as a fundraiser to help them receive the care they need, as they give us so much love and compassion.”
