Year of the Dog: Vancouver Police dog charity calendar now on sale

The $15 calendar raises money for the BC Cancer Foundation and the BC Children’s Hospital

The newest calendar featuring some of the best looking four-legged members of the Vancouver Police Department is now on sale.

Since its inception, $150,000 has been raised.

  • VPD Public Information Counters

    3585 Graveley Street or 2120 Cambie Street

  • Vancouver Community Policing Centres
