The Victoria Cat Rescue Corps is primarily a spay and neuter organization. Our goal is to reduce suffering by reducing the number of stray, feral, and unwanted cats through spaying and neutering.
We also offer financial assistance to low income pet owners towards the veterinary costs for spaying and neutering. Pledges are made directly to participating veterinarians, who usually offer a reduced spay/neuter fee as well.
Clients can access the above program by calling (250) 656-1100. This program is ongoing, but dependent on funds available.
Some conditions and limitations apply.
Our adoption programís goal is to help find homes for our rescued/rehabilitated cats. We cannot assist with all feral/wild cat situations, but we do operate TNR and feral maintenance programs when resources permit. The current adoption charge is $300. All our cats are vet-checked and spayed or neutered before adoption (or if too young, will be spayed/neutered by us when old enough).

Please note: Our adoption/foster program is currently at full capacity. We are also unable to provide short-term foster homes for domesticated cats.
SCRATCHING POST NEWSLETTER:
Published two times each year, our newsletter is focused on keeping our members updated on our activities, and recruiting new members and volunteers. Interesting articles, membership information, and upcoming events are included. A subscription to this newsletter is included in society membership.
We have two main fundraising events every year; our Strawberry Tea and Bazaar in June, and our Christmas Bazaar in late November. Apart from our membership fees and donations, these are our only means of raising funds. Please check out our Coming events section to see where you can find us this year
Our programs range from financial assistance for local low income pet owners, to community education and outreach. We are able to do so much in the community, because of the donations and help we receive from our supporters. If you would like to help, please call us at 250-656-1100 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would like to see pet owners spaying and neutering their cats. We understand that spay, neuter and other veterinary care can be prohibitively expensive for some cat owners, so we offer assistance to those in need in the community.
We always welcome new volunteers, and we always need temporary foster homes for homeless cats. If you would like to help, please visit our How to help section, call (250) 656-1100 or email@example.com.
Our membership comes with a subscription to our newsletter, The Scratching Post.

We encourage the public to attend our events! We have a great time, and it's a wonderful way to support our fundraising efforts.
Let's make sure that all of the cats that are born have homes and are wanted!
