Vancouver Hospital Trust Fund

SPCA Vancouver Hospital Veterinarian

February 10, 2018

One of the Trustees is always a veterinarian who represents the Vancouver Hospital. This allows the Trust to maintain a current understanding of the needs and challenges of the Hospital, as well as enabling a good dialogue about the cases and administration of our grants. This position is currently filled by Dirk van der Walt.

Dr. van der Walt graduated from Ontario Veterinary College in 1989. He worked for 1 year in Toronto before returning home to the Ottawa Valley where he worked for 6 years at Kanata Animal Hospital. In 1996, he relocated to Vancouver where he has been working ever since.  He has worked on a part time basis at the BC SPCA Vancouver Animal Hospital for nearly 20 years. In addition, he occasionally works at the BC SPCA Spay and Neuter Clinics in Kamloops and Prince George.
