Re-homing feral cats

Many BC communities have feral cat populations. VHS often gets calls from such communities asking for our help. And we say “Yes!”. The important thing is to get a handle on feral populations through spay and neuter, and through re-homing — which is challenging with adult feral cats who are too skittish to trust people and do not always transition into stable loving pets. (Though it’s not impossible.) Our process is to take the young feral kittens into care for placement in loving homes. With the wilder, skittish adult cats, we work with Barn Rats need Barn Cats — a small local rescue who place feral cats into “forever farm homes”. VHS transports the feral cats from the communities who need our help, we ensure they are spayed, neutered and micro chipped, and then Barn Rats need Barn Cats finds rural or farm-like placements where the cats help control rodent populations, and receive regular feedings and veterinary care from their new owners. It’s a win-win program and we are proud to be part of the effort to control these populations and ensure safe homes for the cats.

You are the lifeblood of our work on behalf of animals.

As a non-profit organization, the Victoria Humane Society depends entirely on donations from kind-hearted people like you. Every month, we rescue literally dozens of dogs and cats, and sometimes other small animals, many from horrific circumstances such as neglect, starvation and abuse. The associated costs of rescue are significant, from arranging transportation for the animals out of remote communities and into our care, to emergency medical bills to save animals lives, to spay and neuter costs, vaccinations, hospitalizations, medications and on-going food costs and incidentals. Monthly and one-time donors are literally our most critical form of support. We thank you for donating what you can today.
