As a volunteer-driven non-profit, the Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association (“VOKRA”) relies on Walk for the Kitties to raise much needed funds to help them rescue more than 1,400 cats and kittens each year.
Their mission is to end cat overpopulation and homelessness. They rescue, heal, then place cats – first in their network of foster homes, then in carefully matched, loving, forever homes. They are a passionate, volunteer-driven charity with extensive cat care experience. They believe that no-kill is the only responsible approach to rescue, that Trap-Neuter-Return works and that cats are AWESOME!
Here’s how your contributions 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.
