Kitty Cat Society needs help with renos

The Kitty Cat Prevent-A-Litter Society needs a helping hand.

Over the past decade, the charity has helped more than 6,000 abandoned cats and kittens, and feral cats in the Comox Valley.

About 150 people volunteer with the society, which operates out of a 12×19 outbuilding provided free of charge by the Comox Valley Animal Hospital on Dyke Road. But it needs more space to deal with the estimated 600 felines that come through the door each year.

“What we’re operating out of is way too small,” society president Bryan Baker said. “We’re trying to renovate a building out back.”

The new building will nearly triple its space.

Because funds are limited, the society needs donated labour and material to complete the project. Drywall, concrete and insulation are needed, as are tapers and installers.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated by the society — and the cats and kittens of the Comox Valley.

For more information, call the society at 250-941-7257 or Baker at 250-338-3403.

The society operates a Trap-Neuter-Return program that helps control the cat population, improve the lives of feral cats and provide rural property owners with an effective and environmentally friendly approach to eliminating vermin.

Visit the society online at kittycatpals.com or on Facebook.
