Who We Are

Kootenay Animal Assistance Program Society (KAAP) was founded to meet the needs of homeless and disadvantaged pets who might otherwise fall between the cracks in existing services.

KAAP is a registered charity serving the West Kootenay in BC. We are 100% volunteer, and are no-kill.  Help us save lives! Volunteer, Donate, Adopt, Refer, and Support KAAP.

All KAAP animals available for adoption can be visited in their foster homes. Please call the contact number at the bottom of each pet listing to make arrangements.

How to Adopt a Pet

Browse the listings of adoptable animals. These include KAAP animals, Private Adoptions and pets from other Rescue Organizations. If you want to adopt a pet from KAAP you will have to pay an adoption fee and fill out an adoption application. If you want to adopt one of the other animals listed here you will have to follow the instructions in the individual postings.

How To Post A Pet

KAAP.ca is a free public web site for pet adoptions and lost-and-found pets. We currently serve the area in and around Nelson, British Columbia, Canada. If you wish to post an ad, please submit the form on the post a pet page. Be sure to include a complete description of the animal – name, age, breed, personality, does it get along with other dogs/cats/children, special needs, reason for advertising, where the animal is currently, and your phone and email information. (Please note: we do not allow post ads for animals for sale.). Once you submit the form a moderator will review the posting and publish it live to the site.
