Vancouver residents to help homeless felines

August 6, 2017 by  

The Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue ( VOKRA) will be hosting Walk for the Kitties 2017, which is its signature fundraiser for the year. It follows a five-kilometer route along Jericho Beach, and all of the proceeds from the day will be used by VOKRA to help supports its efforts to help the city’s homeless cats.

The organizers explained that last year, the group was able to provide assistance to more than 1,400 kittens and cats, and it is hoping this year will prove to be just as successful. It has set a goal of raising $50,000 or more for the year, and it is seeking the public’s help to reach that number. They went of to say that even $25 could make a difference, as it is enough to purchase food for the felines.

Each person who registers will be asked to set up his or her own fundraising page, and then, on September 17th , they will be able to join with all the others who will be walking. Everyone will be made most welcome, and dogs are invited to come out and show their support. Wide format printing can be used to create banners and signs for the participants in an event like this to carry while they walk.

More information and an opportunity to register can be found on the VOKRA website.
