June 1st Update: we are now 14 cats old, thanks to Samantha, Patricia, Campbell River Vets and Dogwood Vets. We are, as well, almost out of money, so our next fundraiser can’t come soon enough!
June success story: A Peach Snowshoe Kitten was reported wandering around Manson’s dock this May. He was locally fostered and fixed, and is now living at his new home on Pender Island. His Cortes Island Foster Mom declares “he is the sweetest cat I have ever known!”

* Spring Update * Thanks to your generosity and support, as of May 1st, 2015, we have successfully transported TWELVE Cortes Cats to Campbell River to be fixed and vaccinated. Special gratitude to Ian and Anne-Lise and to Samantha who kindly drives the cats to town in the early morning, and later returns them to the island.
Cortes Cat Rescue is officially five cats old and, in celebration of this fact, we’d like to announce the successful spaying & neutering of Mini-Manx, Luna, LJ, Pepper and Julies, a feat made possible through the very generous financial assistance of Quadra Cat Rescue (and, most notably, QCR’s Janet Massey). We would also like to thank Dogwood Veterinary Hospital ( http://www.dogwoodvet.ca/ ) for providing sterilization and vaccination treatment at a reduced rate.
