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.
