“Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association (VOKRA) is a no-kill, non-profit, registered charity dedicated to the rescue of cats in the Lower Mainland. We also coordinate rescue work with other groups in BC. VOKRA does not have a shelter. Instead, we provide over 100 individual foster homes throughout the Lower Mainland. In this way we are able to protect the very young from colds, distemper, parasites and other transmissible illnesses. In a home environment, our cats are safe and well socialized, with lots of love and attention. VOKRA covers all of the costs and provides ongoing support to foster families.”
GIVE 22 / DAY 22
My son and I stopped to peer again, in this same window of the Orphan Kitten Rescue organization on our walk to gymnastic class today. We already have two dogs but my son like to sit and wish for a cat one day. There are always new cats coming and going. Today, for the first time, I decided to give some money to the organization. They recently place a change box outside their location. I asked my son put the money in the box himself while we discussed why we were helping the cats.
When I had a chance I went to their site to learn more about their mission and discovered I could help them win $10,000 through an online contest at The Animal Rescue Site. Just a few clicks added my vote and with any luck a prize that will contribute to helping the cats.
Later I took the opportunity to visit their website to learn more about their mission and discovered I could help them win $10,000 through an online contest at The Animal Rescue Site. Just a few clicks added my vote and with any luck and each of us following suite, a prize that will contribute to helping their cats in need.
Time Commitment: 5 minute (to give my son a lesson on why we are giving to help cats and click the online contest)
Cost: $2.00 (small change in the bottom of my purse)
