Call For Volunteers!


While Vancouver heads into the Olympics, VOKRA is getting ready for an early Spring in its 10th year of rescue. We need volunteers in several areas:


We need volunteers to help with Cat Care and Socialization at our two PetSmart Adoption Centre locations, North Vancouver and Grandview Highway. Volunteers must be 18 or older and willing to make a minimum six-month committment. Training is required and provided.

We also need volunteers for Cat Care and Socialization at three other locations, one in south Vancouver, one in Kitsilano, and one in the Burnaby Central Park area.

Please email the Volunteer Coordinator for details.


VOKRA is planning its first annual Walk for the Kitties, to be held on April 25. We need a group of enthusiastic, committed volunteers to help us, starting immediately. We of course will also need plenty of walkers. All ages are welcome!

If you'd like to be part of the Event Team, please email the Volunteer Coordinator.

If you'd like to participate by walking, come along to our Evening of Thanks for our Volunteers and Supporters on March 24 and collect your pledge kit. If you can't make it for that event, email the Volunteer Coordinator and we'll arrange to get pledge kits to you.

Details about the location and time for the Evening of Thanks and the Walk for the Kitties will be posted here on the blog.

  • ensures all foster cats are entered in the VOKRA database.
