Anderson Animal Hospital Vancouver's full service veterinary clinic 8465 Granville Street Vancouver, BC V6P 4Z9
Dr Anderson and his staff have spayed/neutered many of our cats and kittens for free this spring and we are so very grateful. Help like this has enabled us to continue answering pleas for help with cats in desperate situations. Things have been incredibly busy for this time of year and we have not spoken enough on the very generous service dr Anderson's clinic has provided for us. Thank you so much!

Why we Volunteer:
Dear Peg (Our Adoptions Manager)
Once again, my heartfelt thanks for walking
me through the joy of bringing Crocus
home to me as an owner. I have greatly
appreciated all that you have done,
and in such a fun and pleasant manner
too. You are made for that work!
So I will go to that place in North
Van on Saturday. For your information,
as we agreed, the fee will be $125 and
I will be bringing it to your lady there
in cash. Following that, I will take
my excellent cat carrier to Janelle's (Foster Mom)
home, make sure she is as comfortable
as possible for her trip to West Van.
I'm going to pick up some flowers
for Janelle, the foster mom. She
has done such a great thing by
taking Crocus in and loving her.
Crocus' New Forever Mom
Just a quick note to say that Crocus
is making out well. She ate her food
and used her litter box the very first
day. Then the next day, she very
daintily ate some Treats off my
hand. She seems cautious, of
course, but not shaking or acting
nervous in any way.
I'm keeping her in the bathtub
with a towel from Janelle and a
lovely soft blanket from me.
Last night I went in to find her
sound asleep with her head on
a big rubber ducky that I put in
the tub for company. Oh, how
I wished I'd had a camera!
I knew you would be wondering
so thought I'd drop you a line.
Thank you again for all the
trouble you went to in
making sure Crocus ended
up in my welcoming arms.
I love her dearly.
Continued success with your
work. If I have an chance
to do any fundraising for you,
I certainly will.
Crocus' Forever Mom
Yes, after a nice long note of advice
from Janelle, I pretended I wasn't
afraid and rubbed her nose and chin
and fed her some Treats. She was
delighted with all of that.
Janelle said she doesn't meow
but instead her way of
communicating is hissing
but not to worry that she
will hurt me.
So far so good.
She really surprised me this
afternoon. I was tired and was
lying on my bed in my bedroom
watching TV. I had my door
open, although I first closed the
bathroom door. I am leery of
Crocus running in under my
bed and having to haul/coax
her back out.
Well, I was lying there and
suddenly Crocus walked
confidently into my bedroom,
tail up, Miss Little Confidence
herself. Then she stopped,
turned around and looked
at me as if to say:
"Well, here I am!"
I'll have to make sure that bathroom
door is closed tight every time,
but I knew you would enjoy
the little story.
Thanks so much.

video of Timothy at rest home before he was trapped:
video of Timothy at foster home:
Timothy was originally trapped at a rest home when he was under a year old. People had been feeding the cats and allowed many litters to be born before VOKRA was called. Luckily, Timothy survived out on his own.
Timothy needs a place with no stairs as he has bad back legs. He is friendly once he knows you and would love to sleep on your bed! As much as Timothy likes to mooch treats, he is cautious of strangers. With the right home and care, he will quickly grow out of this behaviour.
Timothy needs a quiet home with no children where his needs are respected. He is a special guy who must be adopted with MICKEY MOUSE. They were adopted together once but unfortunately were returned after several years due to a change in the adopters life. THEY BOTH need some TLC.
Is it with you?
