Presidents Message Fall/Winter 2014

Dear Members and Friends:

We do have some good news! Recently a meeting was held at the Kelowna SPCA to tackle the cat crisis. Animal groups, veterinarians, SPCA staff are all working together to try and change this unfortunate giant sized problem. The mindset that cats in particular, have no value must change. More humane education and people with pets taking more responsibility by getting their pets spayed or neutered is essential. There is financial help available in the community.

Please check out our fundraiser and the various events being held to help the Okanagan Humane Society continue our spay and neuter program.

Many thanks to all the wonderful volunteers and helpers who make things happen. To veterinarians and their support staff who go out of their way to make this program possible. A HUGE THANK YOU to the businesses and individuals who support us by donations for raffles and silent auctions, we very much appreciate your generosity!

We would like to show appreciation to the following people and businesses:

  • Bosley’s
  • Buckerfields
  • Petsmart
  • Total Pet

for their support in showcasing adoptable pets.
