Seniors’ home

A profile of B.C.’s Senior Animals In Need Today Society.

Hine established SAINTS in December 2004 after she heard volunteers at other animal shelters lament that many older animals spend their final days in a shelter, only to finally be euthanized.

“They don’t even make it to the adoption list. They’re too old and they cost too much to take care of,” she said.

Hine bought the acreage with the sole purpose of creating an end-of-life retreat for animals no one else would take. She believes it’s the only shelter of its kind in B.C., and perhaps in Canada.

A fulltime community nurse, Hine has worked with palliative patients and the elderly.

“I’ve learned you can be terminally ill and still have a good quality of life, and that [understanding] naturally progressed to animals,” said Hine, who’s also worked in animal rescue for two decades.
