Quadra Cat Rescue finds homes for hard-luck kittens

Thanks to a new partnership between Quadra Cat Rescue and Dogwood Veterinary Hospital, two hard-luck kittens have found new homes

Thanks to a new partnership between Quadra Cat Rescue and Dogwood Veterinary Hospital, two hard-luck kittens have found new homes.

Jesse and his sister Willow came into the care of Quadra Cat Rescue volunteers when they were weeks old. Their foster home socialized them, and they went through the process of vet checks, shots and were fixed to ready them for adoption.

“Dr. Gjertsen generously offered to display them at Dogwood Veterinary Hospital, where more people would see them – and both of these kittens were adopted because people came into the clinic and fell in love with them,” says Valerie Van Veen of Quadra Cat Rescue.

Willow found a home in early December, and in another month, Jesse was adopted.

“Dr. Gjertsen and his staff have always been so supportive of our group’s efforts to try reduce the number of unwanted cats on Quadra, and we want to thank them for this additional help – talking about these kittens and referring interested people to us when they have more questions – because we really needed to let people know they were ready for adoption,” Van Veen adds. “It makes a huge difference to the volunteers, especially the people fostering kittens, to see them find good homes.”

Quadra Cat Rescue welcomes volunteers, particularly people interested in trapping, transporting and fostering cats and kittens. For more information: 250-285-CATS (2287) or by email at quadracatrescue@yahoo.com.
