A Day in the Life of Karen, Maria, VOKRA Co-Founders, and our great Volunteers:

So, some kind of day. Donna and I went to a place where we picked up and sorted through over 45 cats/kittens. We brought back 7 kennels of moms and kits or young kits that would be 30 living beings.


Have a number at High Point Vet (great folks!), where we are using the Pepsi Grant to do fixes (Thanks, Heather!).

Another 5 or 6 left at the home to go in on Thursday to pick up. All nice cats, and healthy!

Same old story. A kind hearted Woman took in cat someone dumped. It was preg, got preg again before finished nursing. She asked a shelter for help and didn't get it!

And the whole thing took off. Man. 45 from one.


We NEED low cost Spay/Neuter in this city and to make it accessible!


Now is the time to DONATE! Click here.

Arthur Needs a Sponsor

Grino | June 8, 2011

We have some news about dear ARTHUR who we rescued from Surrey, BC last fall. This precious guy needs your support.



Arthur Needs a Sponsor or a few! His food, vet and litter costs are only $100/month. If a few people banded together to donate $10/month or if a very generous donor would donate the whole lot, Arthur will be as snug as a kitty in a rug!

Sponsor Arthur HERE and donate HERE

Arthur and his brother, Angus, were abandoned in a neighbourhood where they were not welcome. Both boys were starved and were skin and bones.

Angus had two gaping wounds from his ears down his neck. This required expensive plastic surgery. His handsomeness was enhanced with his ears now sticking out sideways.

Angus was adopted right away. Arthur had experienced malnutrition and was weak when he came to us. His ears had been frostbitten from the cold.

Since being in a loving foster home Arthur has been so grateful to have regular meals and even travel with his foster mom and dad in the car to the island for weekends. Arthur hasn't been well since coming to us. An expensive ultrasound has just diagnosed him with Lymphoma. We are starting a much needed fund for Arthur's palliative care and subsequent upcoming medical bills.

Fans of Arthur can donate online on the VOKRA website
https://www.orphankittenrescue.com/donate/

Here is Arthur's video. Although we asked for someone to adopt ARTHUR in his video, his forever home will now be with VOKRA and his foster mom and dad.
