Giving back means a lot to us at North Shore Veterinary Clinic and is part of our commitment to the community.
VOKRA is a committed group of volunteers dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of homeless or unwanted cats. We provide medical care, vaccinations, pet identification, and spay and neuter surgeries at reduced rates to help them achieve this goal.

We support local schools with their career placement programs, giving students an opportunity to see if Veterinary Medicine is a career choice they would like to pursue.

Our team in the community
Dr. Mary Plischke has volunteered as the veterinarian on site at many dog events including dog agility trials and canine search and rescue training events. She has also taught pet first aid classes at Canine Camps and for Search and Rescue groups.
Dr. Shaunne Gorrie worked previously as a veterinarian for the Vancouver SPCA. While there, she cared for many shelter animals. She didn’t have the heart to euthanize unadoptable animals and ended up taking many of them home, which is how she ended up with over 15 pets at one time.
Staff member Juanita makes regular trips on her own time to the North Vancouver District Shelter dropping off food, toys, towels, and blankets, etc. Some of these items are from our clinic that we no longer have use for, while others are donated by our generous clients.
