Welcome to VOKRA's 2012 3rd Annual Walk for the Kitties
Every year, for one day, we ask all our friends to join us in raising funds for the homeless and unwanted cats and kittens in the Lower Mainland.
It's easy to participate:
- CHOOSE the VOKRA cat you'd like to walk for. Read their bios on the VOKRA website at http://www.orphankittenrescue.com/annual-walk-for-the-kitties. The 6 cats represent many aspects of the VOKRA story.
- REGISTER here.
- COLLECT DONATIONS - through your own personalized CanadaHelps GivingPage. Here are instructions for setup or email email@example.com and we'll do it for you!
- WALK on September 23rd. it's a nice 5 km stroll along the beach.
- CELEBRATE all the help you've given.
Connect with fellow walkathon participants and receive the latest updates. "Like" our 2012 Walk for the Kitties fan page on Facebook.
VOKRA is a 100% volunteer driven organization that relies on donations and fundraising for our support. In 2011 we took in over 1200 cats. This year it will be over 1600. We do not have a shelter and rely on a foster network of 150 homes in the Lower Mainland. Our kitties are socialized and cared for while we find them forever homes.
But that takes money... A lot of money. Just to give you an idea of what things cost
$1 - will feed a cat for a day
$15 will provide a vaccine
$60 will buy a trap for use in our trap-neuter-return programmes
$100 will spay/neuter a cat
Every bit helps!
Please gather pledges and donate generously.
