Our organization was founded in the late 1960's by the late Thora Scan lon Bonneau and her husband, Tommy Bonneau. Then known as the Bonneau Spay Fund, we were a small group of animal lovers determined to help the countless strays and abandoned animals in the Victoria area.
Helped by a local veterinarian, Dr. Alan Bonnell, we tried to educate the public on the importance of spaying and neutering to reduce the stray population, and offered assistance to those who could not afford veterinary costs. The organization became an incorporated society in 1984.
Thora and Tommy dedicated their life to rescuing and rehabilitating abandoned animals. Sylvia, an abandoned Silver Chincilla Persian, became their mascot and accompanied them to fundraising events. Although they and their volunteers helped any animal in distress, cats in vast numbers are the greatest victims of abandonment, cruelty and indifference, and their need is the greatest.
