President’s Message

Dear Members and Friends,

It’s been a long, rather cold winter but we are finally enjoying Spring and the start of better weather. Unfortunately, we are also having to deal with a larger than ever number of cat colonies. We are still helping people with cats and dogs who cannot afford to pay the full cost of having their pets spayed or neutered but the situation with cats and kittens is out of control.

The Okanagan Cat Coalition has been formed to co-ordinate the efforts of the various animal groups. There are an estimated 15,000 homeless and feral cats in the Okanagan Valley. All Groups are working as hard as they can but we need more help.

If you can assist in any way by trapping, fostering, providing a barn or by selling-raffle tickets to help cover costs, please call me at 250-548-9293. If you can donate gently used items for our Spring Bazaar or attend one or two of our fundraising events it will make a big difference. Every little bit helps.

All Okanagan Humane Society volunteers wish you a pleasant and happy year.

Hazel and her hard working volunteers put together, among many other events, our successful Christmas Bazaar and Silent Auction.

All the caring students at Centre for Arts and Technology including VHA students for their various fundraisers.
