Why we Walk for the Kitties

Tiny Long John Silver got his name because of his amazing silver fur. And because he's missing part of his back leg.

He was rescued when a woman in Port Coquitlam spotted a mama and two kittens emerging from a carport. The kind Samaritan took the little family inside but the mama begged to be let back out. Once outside she went back to the carport and one by one brought out five more kittens. (read more...)

Long John Silver is just one of the thousands of reasons why we Walk for the Kitties. It's our largest fundraising event of the year and, as a volunteer-driven non-profit, we rely on Walk for the Kitties to raise much needed funds to help us rescue more than 1,800 cats and kittens each year. Each Walk for the Kitties participant pledges to raise funds for VOKRA to help us in our mission to end cat overpopulation and homelessness. Join us on September 18 when we Walk for the Kitties.

Meet Varvara
All Varvara needs to be happy are chin scratches, toys, a comfy chair and a windowsill! The second you pet her she starts purr-purr-purr-purring and she loves to rub her face on your hand. At two years old, Varvara is mature enough not to wreck your home and young enough to be hilariously silly playing with toys or chasing her tail. She's likely part Siamese based on her chatty nature, huge ears and lean, angular physique. (more...)

Happy Tails

Snaggletooth's Happy Tail Ending
Senior kitty Snaggletooth first came to us in July 2015 as a stray. At some point in his life someone cared enough for him to ensure he was neutered and tattooed. But by the time he came to us the tattoo had faded and couldn't be read so he was stuck with us. He's a sweet, loving, relaxed guy and sometimes his bottom left tooth ends up being in front of his upper lip so we dubbed him Snaggletooth.
