Who We Are
TRACS is a registered, non-profit charity dedicated to the kind and compassionate treatment of all living beings. In addition to hands-on rescue work and crisis intervention, we actively promote public awareness in areas where animals are exploited for profit, abused, or denied natural conditions.
An Okanagan-based charitable organization, TRACS was formed in 1994 after a local issue of horse neglect prompted a small group of neighbours to launch a petitioning effort on behalf of these animals. The starving, emaciated horses involved were eventually seized and re-homed. Responding to an urgent, ongoing need for animal protection in our community, the neighbours formed an official group. TRACS became a non-profit society in December 1994 and a registered charity in 1995. Today, we strive to protect all species of animals, as well as the habitat that they share.
Currently we are focusing on our Miscellaneous Animal and Rabbit Rescue Projects. These projects offer compassionate care and sanctuary to those that cannot help themselves. Click here to read more about these projects.
All TRACS programs are funded by donations, fundraising and grants. A very small portion of these funds are used for administration leaving almost 100% going directly to the animals.
