VOKRA Walk for the Kitties
Where: Beach Path, West of Jericho Sailing Club (1300 Discovery St, Vancouver)
When: Sunday, September 17, 2017 at 10:00am
Participation: Register online now for the 5km walk for $25 (plus fee). Dogs are welcome to tag along and you can grab a free ticket for them online as well.
Each Walk for the Kitties participant pledges to raise funds for VOKRA to help in their mission to end cat overpopulation and homelessness. VOKRA is a 100% volunteer driven organization that relies on donations and fundraising for their support. They take in over 1,400 cats a year and they don’t even have a shelter! They rely on a foster network of over 350 homes in the Lower Mainland to care for these animals.
Here’s how your contributions will help:
$25 buys a flat of food
$50 provides one cat with care for a month
$85 covers the cost of one spay/neuter
$100 buys 20 nursing kits used to feed orphaned kittens
Donations, pledges, and support from the Walk for the Kitties will help VOKRA buy food, litter, and even spay/neuter treatments for local cats. Follow them on Facebook and Twitter for more information.
