The Okanagan Cat Coalition (OKCC) is an umbrella organization of concerned animal welfare charities, veterinarians and residents dedicated to working with the public, to permanently solve the existing cat crisis in the Central Okanagan. We assist by spaying and neutering cats and kittens then re-homing or releasing them into a safe environment to live out their lives without perpetuating the overpopulation problem.
You can help by completing this brief questionnaire (5-10 minutes) which will cover the following subject matter:
1. Reporting cats and kittens needing to be rescued, spayed or neutered. Especially cats living and reproducing with no apparent owner.
2. Volunteer to rescue, foster, transport, manage.
3. Give food, provide monetary gifts for veterinary care, build shelters, donate litter boxes, traps or other supplies.
4. Give charitable funds to the member charity of your choice to help pay for the spays, neuters and ID for homeless cats and receive a tax-deductible donation receipt.
5. Consider homing and/or care-taking on your property once cats are fixed.
If you know of more than one colony please submit separate questionnaires for each one.
The OKCC is 100% Volunteer run. OKCC is a coalition of registered animals charities, non-profit groups, Veterinarians and concerned citizens.
New members and volunteers are welcome. Please go to our Facebook page "Okanagan Cat Coalition" for more information and meeting dates.
