Angela McLaren

Executive Director 

Angela was originally born in South Africa and moved to Fort St James, British Columbia in 2008. Shortly after moving to Canada, she opened the Fort St James Humane Society and began working with local communities on spay and neuter, vaccination, and animal management programs. Over the past thirteen years, Angela has continued to work collaboratively with First Nations communities to create and individualize animal management programs and to develop methods designed to reduce the stray dog overpopulation.


Under Angela’s leadership, thousands of animals’ lives have been saved and she continues to show an unwavering commitment to animal welfare. Since working in rescue, Angela has fostered over 600 animals and shares her home with her 2 daughters and her rescue cats.
