The spay/neuter clinic is open to members of the public and rescue groups alike. This could be a great opportunity to get your rescue pets spayed/neutered. For those of you that financially support spay/neuters for low income families, it may be worth sending some of your vouchered spay/neuters there so it’s cheaper for your group. Spaces are limited so call Vetcetera Pet Hospital at 778-410-2179 for more information.
One of our volunteers, Marion, is helping an elderly lady trap ferals and their kittens in Colwood. So far, she’s caught 2 kittens.
We received an email from the CRD asking if anyone could help with 4 older feral kittens. We were able to take them into care and they are now safely in foster homes, although it will be hard work to bring these older kittens around. Then we were asked to help another 9-10 younger feral kittens coming in as well. Luckily, we have a few fosters that can only foster kittens, so we’ve been able to take them all. So, be prepared to see lots of kittens up for adoption once they’ve been socialized a bit and shown that human touch is a wonderful thing.
Sorry everyone – our website and emails were down for a couple of days due to technical difficulties. We are now up & running again!

Maybe our bunny rescues will find forever homes this year! If you can provide a Happily Ever After for one or more of them, they will reward you with love & affection. Of course, they are only available for adoption after Easter Weekend!
Congratulations to their forever homes for picking such wonderful cats! We had three home checks this weekend and all were successful, so the kitties are going to their respective homes. Three more Happily Ever Afters for GVAC rescues!
