Crazy About Cats


Our Crazy About Cats Program works with rescue organizations, municipal leaders, and community members to educate the public about the cat overpopulation crisis in B.C. and to find sustainable, humane solutions to the problem.

It is important to work with organizations from B.C.’s different communities to ensure the most effective solution is implemented. This may be “Trap, Neuter & Release” in some regions or spay and neuter services for low-income families in others. In either case, it’s about education and prevention, the two pillars of our program.

Our Accomplishments

Through our program, we bring awareness to B.C. communities work with community groups and members to find sustainable, humane solutions to this growing problem. We do this through Trap Neuter Return (TNR) funding, low and no cost spay and neuters, including free clinics.

Supporting homeless and low income pet guardians

In partnership with Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association (VOKRA) and Scottsdale Veterinary Hospital, we are pleased to announce our first Crazy About Cats initiative to provide health check up and spay and neuter outreach and support to low income earners in Surrey.

On November 2, the entire Scottsdale Veterinary team volunteered their time to spay and neuter 30 cats. Thanks to VOKRA volunteers cats and kittens were picked up from their homes first thing in the morning, brought to the hospital to be spayed and neutered, and then returned home in the early evening.

Surrey Cat Coalition

Nearly 2,000 homeless and abandoned cats and kittens in Surrey are rescued every year, and that number is increasing.

In March 2014, animal welfare organizations came together at a stakeholder forum to address the growing number of free-roaming community cats in Surrey, which was just too many for any of the individual organizations to handle alone.

In response, the Surrey Community Cat Coalition was formed in October 2014 to coordinate rescue and education efforts and develop a cohesive action plan to address the number of unwanted cats in Surrey and the underlying causes. We are very excited to be a Coalition member, and to work with our partners and the community to end the cat overpopulation crisis in Surrey.
