OHS Raffle to Rescue Animals has Launched!
Did you know?
Up to 4,948 kittens can be born from one unspayed female cat and her offspring in seven years.
Help OHS stop the breeding and help re-home lost, stray, abandonded and feral kittens in the Okanagan.
Purchase tickets now for chances to win seven wonderful Prizes including two Early Bird Draws April 10th and 24th. This is our main fundraiser to support the rescue of lost, stray and abandoned cats and kittens in the Okanagan and Shuswap. Together our Rescue Team of Volunteers and Fosters ensure animals are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, chipped or tattooed and medically treated for illness and injuries. Then they are rehomed to loving families.
All proceeds from the raffle and your donations go directly to the care of local animals in need. Thank you for supporting this life-saving work!
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:
- assisting low income families with access to low cost spay/neuter and sometimes medical care for their pets;
- rescuing, treating and rehoming stray, feral or abandoned animals;
- promoting responsible pet care through public awareness and education.
OHS is 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.
