OHS runs two main programs:

1. Assist with access to subsidized low/cost spay, neuter, vaccination and de-worming, plus permanent identification of owned and un-owned cats,  and some dogs and other small animals.

2. OHS is also a founding member of the Okanagan Cat Coalition (OKCC) :  an umbrella of registered animals charities, non-profit groups, veterinarians and concerned citizens working with the public to permanently solve the existing cat overpopulation crisis in the Okanagan.

Under this program OHS assists by humanely trapping, spaying and neutering cats and kittens, fostering where possible, then re-homing or releasing them into a safe environment to live out their lives without perpetuating the overpopulation problem.

How you can help animals:

1. Report: cats and kittens living and reproducing with no apparent owner and need to be rescued, spayed or neutered.
2. Volunteer:  rescue, foster cats or kittens in your home, transport, help with events.
3. Provide: food  and supplies for cats and dogs in foster,  build shelter boxes, donate litter boxes, traps or other supplies. 
4. Foster or Adopt: tame cats or kittens in your home, or care for fixed ferals on your property.
5. Donate: to cover veterinary costs of rescued cats, spays, neuters and ID for homeless cats or for pets of low income families.  Donations of $20 or more will receive a charitable tax receipt.
