VOKRA Urgently Needs Your Help

 

After 9 years of rescue work, VOKRA is faced with the very real possibility of having to close its doors to new cats until further notice.

Two very big, entirely unanticipated rescues drained us of $50,000+ this year. Add to that the global economic downturn, with the number of dumped cats on the rise, and we are in dire financial straits.

To date this year, we have rescued over 1000 kittens and adult cats. This includes feral cats in our TNR program who were humanely trapped, spayed/neutered, and released, to reduce the number of kittens born on the streets into starvation, disease, predation, and other miseries.

If VOKRA cannot keep on going, then the rescues and TNR stop. It’s unfortunately that simple.

We realize that most people are experiencing financial issues. But if you can spare $5 or $10, and can ask your family and friends to do the same, VOKRA may be able to get through this situation.

We have our VOKRA fundraising calendar available. And we’ve also started a Sponsor VOKRA Kittens and Cats program. Both of these are great, inexpensive gift ideas for the holidays.

How you can help:

1. Donate online: www.orphankittenrescue.com/donate/

2. Donate by cheque made out to VOKRA and mailed to:

PO Box 74571

2768 West Broadway

Vancouver, BC

V6K 4P4

3. Purchase calendars online or in stores: www.orphankittenrescue.com/2010_calendar/

4. Become a VOKRA Sponsor: www.orphankittenrescue.com/sponsor_vokra_cats

We are a registered charity and issue tax receipts for donations of $20 and over.

Thank you for reading. We hope that by publicizing the reality of our situation, we'll find that caring people come forward so that VOKRA can continue to help the cats.
