2014 Walk for the Kitties made $50,000

alannah | September 22, 2014

We hit the $50,000 milestone!

A thank you message from VOKRA President, Karen Duncan:

"We see a lot of cruelty and sadness in animal rescue work, but the support and kindness we've received from the community keeps us going.
This is the most successful Walk for the Kitties we have ever held and we are so thankful for our wonderful volunteers and donors. The money you raised this year will keep our new operations center running, our supplies flowing, our vet bills paid, which means hundreds of homeless cats and kittens will be saved from the local streets and provided with quality food, shelter, and care."

We are so grateful to the good people at South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital for holding a free spay / neuter clinic for VOKRA!

The veterinarians and staff at South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital are celebrating Fabulous Feline Month on Sunday July 20th. Their team will be volunteering their time to spay/neuter 30 cats for us at no charge. As spay/neuter is one of VOKRA's biggest costs, this is so very appreciated and will save us thousands of dollars!

In addition to the South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital vets and staff, we want to thank Zoetis Animal Health for providing flea & deworming treatment for these cats with Revolution.

If you would like to make a donation to help cover the cost of supplies for this wonderful charity event, please contact the South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital office at 604-526-0334 or petcare@telus.net.

Thank you, South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital!

VOKRA will be at the Khatsahlano Street Party on Saturday, July 12th.

Look for us outside the Cat and Dog Shop at 2637 W. 4th.

Pop by and say hi!

Happy Tax Day

Lady Marmalade is helping her person, Marie, fill out tax forms. Good kitty!

VOKRA’s going green and introducing electronic tax receipts so you’ll get future donation receipts by email. If you send donations to us by cheque, please consider adding your email address.

On April 8th, VOKRA VOlunteers, Michele and Morgan, were invited to give a presentation at Hugh McRoberts Secondary School in Richmond. They spoke to students in the McRoberts Animal Rescue Club about the work VOKRA does, the importance of spay/neuter and how young people can help spread the word about responsible pet care. These young people are amazing! They volunteer with animal shelters, learn about rescue work, and fundraise for animal charities.

We were thrilled when club co-presidents Angela Lin and Jordan Nguyen presented VOKRA with a cheque for $200 from their fundraising efforts!

Many thanks to Angela, Jordan and all the members of the McRoberts Animal Rescue Club and to their staff representative Mrs. Sundell for having us and for their contribution. We know the future of rescue is in great hands with young people like this getting involved.
