Community pitches in for cats

B.C. SPCA grateful for community support for Vernon branch

The B.C. SPCA’s Vernon branch is pleased with how the community has helped it feed the many homeless kittens staying at their shelter.

“This community rocks,” said Corinne Ross, branch manager.

“In the past week, we have had literally 1,000 cans of food donated, a lot of in kind receipts issued and more than $800 in cash donations for our kittens. Thank you so much for these amazing donations.”

Some of the shelter’s furry house guests have been adopted – 10 kittens in the past week. But many more still need homes.

Ross says the shelter is hoping individuals who are thinking of adopting will visit the kittens who are still hoping for homes.

Another box of kittens was left at the shelter on Friday.

Before leaving any animals with the shelter, Ross urges pet owners to think twice and to call first.

“Phone us and we’ll help you make a plan,” shes said.
