End Suffering
Need help to fix your cat?

Thinking of letting your cat have kittens?

Please think again.

Since 2009, Quadra Cat Rescue volunteers have been working hard to reduce the number of homeless cats on Quadra.

We’ve rescued a mother cat and her litter of kittens destined for drowning. We’ve rescued cats and kittens from substance abusers. We foster strays.

We’ve fixed hundreds of cats – and found homes for most of these. And it’s all funded by generous donations.

But more and more kittens keep coming – and the root of the problem is unfixed pet cats.

While the number of dogs and puppies surrendered to BC SPCAs is slowly declining, each year the mountains of cats and kittens continue to show up. (The BC SPCA’s Summer 2011 Animal Sense magazine reported that nearly 60 per cent of shelter animals are cats: 19,000 a year, with only 11,306 cats adopted in 2010.) The math is simple, and horrifying: thousands of cats and kittens aren’t lucky enough to find homes in BC.

Quadra Cat Rescue volunteers are working hard to reduce the number of homeless cats on Quadra.

Please help us end the suffering of unwanted animals.

If you’re thinking of adopting a free kitten, please consider the costs of responsible pet ownership. Campbell River vets charge about $300 to spay a female cat.

The cost of not spaying and neutering? More kittens!

Even now, at the end of kitten season, there are more kittens fending for themselves than we can get into foster care through Quadra Cat Rescue.

  • Kittens at the harbour.
    Kittens at the Cove.
    Kittens down on Pidcock.
    Kittens at the Cape.
    Kittens at the gas station.
    Kittens on Joyce Road.
    Kittens at the recycling depot.
    Kittens at April Point.
    Kittens in the gravel pit.
    Kittens on Topcliffe.
    Kittens in Heriot Bay.

But there is hope. Other island communities have brought cat overpopulation under control. On Quadra, we can solve the problem too. We can reduce the number of homeless cats.

We can end the cycle of unnecessary suffering – and ensure every kitten grows up to be a beloved family pet.

If you love cats, please do your part. The humane solution to this human-caused problem is spaying and neutering.
