Our Story

Helping Homeless Cats of Greater Victoria Society was formed in 2009 for the purpose of rescuing abandoned domestic cats and helping feral cats. Our goal is to find good foster and permanent homes for cats we have rescued so we can help more cats in the future. When possible, we maintain long-term foster homes for seniors, low income families, and those on disability. We rely heavily on donations from supporters in order to help cats in desperate need of food, shelter, and medical care. Donations also allow us to maintain our foster homes which greatly benefit not only the cats but also the people who love them.

Smile Card Program

April 2017

 Our new Smile Card program at Thrifty’s begins April 30, 2017. We will receive 5% of all you load on your cards for purchases (before tax) until we reach $2,500 which usually takes about a year. We then apply for a new program. All old cards are still good. If you need a card, email Linda at catadopt@shaw.ca with your name and address and she will mail you a card. Thank you for helping! 100% of the money from this will be used for vet care and medication.
