Spay – Neuter Saves Lives and Ends Suffering

The Okanagan Humane Society (OHS) is a Registered Canadian Charity  #8888 17269 RR 0001 formed in 1996 by volunteers committed to solving pet overpopulation.  OHS carries out its Mission by:

  1. assisting low income families with access to low cost spay/neuter and sometimes medical care for their pets;
  2. rescuing, treating and rehoming stray, feral or abandoned animals; 
  3. promoting responsible pet care through public awareness and education.

OHS is 100% volunteer run, and foster home based, relying only on donations and grants. We could not function without our supporters, volunteers and the care and compassion of our veterinary partners.

Pet Assistance Program*:  Low income families or individuals can apply for assistance here:

*This program requires application and qualification. It is dependant on income level, OHS’ resources, and veterinary partner availability. Veterinarians reserve the right to refuse service if applicant qualification is in question, or for any other reason.
Rescue Program:  To report lost, stray, feral or abandoned cats needing help, apply here:

(Disregard Facebook dates - all cats are currently available until marked "adopted" ) At this time during COVID, it is up to the discretion of OHS fosters if they are comfortable with having home visits for a meet and greet for kittens and cats that are available for adoption. Please contact the foster home to discuss the kitty and perhaps meet by video conferencing if they are not comfortable with a home visit. Our fosters will inform any potential adopter of the process of meeting, application, and pick up within Covid-19 safety practices. Vet cost recovery is $150 for each kitty, unless marked otherwise, to pay for the vet procedures already completed: Spay or Neuter, 1st Vaccine & Deworm, Tattoo or Microchip. Click photos for details in the captions. Call orP text foster homes to inquire, meet by video conference where applicable, or at the fosters home, then apply. All adopted OHS kittens and cats have 30 days to ensure a good fit, with return of funds within that time frame if they are to be returned to OHS. (Disregard Facebook dates on photos)
