We regret to announce that, effective immediately, VOKRA will no longer be running adoption centres at any PetSmart locations. A recent change in PetSmart's corporate policy requires mandatory rabies vaccinations for cats in all adoption centers across the U.S. and Canada.
Rabies vaccination is not mandatory in the province of British Columbia as the only species that currently carries the disease in BC is bats. Rabies vaccination for cats is unnecessary, increases the risk of injection site fibrosarcoma, and is costly. World-renowned expert, Dr. Jean Dodds, of the Rabies Challenge Fund agrees with us.
For the welfare of our kitties, VOKRA cannot comply with the new Petsmart policy. We are urgently seeking to work with new adoption partners who will respect our position against over-vaccination.
For partnership proposals, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

While some suggested to use pillow cases when in a bind, one fantastic item that was suggested was an "EVACSAK." If your carriers are hidden away in storage or you just can not carry that many cats and carriers, take a look at this great item:
Many of us may have Disaster kits for ourselves and our family, but have we included supplies for our pets?
Here is a convenient Disaster Preparedness Shopping List For Cats. Prepare now and be
