Ride For The Dogs!
Alert Bay DogRun Fundraiser: July 7, 2013
(from an exchange with David Faren, event coordinator) “I don't have set plans for this year, in part because I don't know how well the event will do financially. The first year I held a dance instead (of a race) and raised close to a thousand dollars. That money was completely used up on one badly injured dog who would have lost his leg if we hadn't taken him to the vet. The next year (summer of 2012) I held a bike race and raised close to four hundred dollars. That money neutered a cat, and provided vet care for the same cat who came my way after being attacked, according to the local residents, by an eagle. That cat was “Ferguson” (a big orange Scottish Fold Cross) who was sent down to CCAR to complete his recovery and find a home.
This year I hope to see a better turn out, and hopefully raise enough money to spay and/or neuter a few animals. The change in the race format is intended to make the race more appealing to a broader range of entrants, and the team aspect is intended to make the race additionally fun, rather than just a hard grinding cross country race.”
Note from CCAR: More than ever these events are important since funding to the Campbell River SPCA is in threat of disappearing. As of April 18, 2013, discussions have resumed. If you wish to stay informed visit the Campbell River SPCA website and look under NEWS, or visit their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/bcspca.campbellriver.

A big thank you to every one that supported the garage sale, and all the people who worked to make it happen.
Also many thanks to Safeway for the donuts and milk, Subway for the coffee, cups and sugar, and The Roost for offering us coffee. Couldn't have done this without you!

Fur and Whiskers!
Spring is definitely in the air which means that CCAR is getting busy with the arrival of litters of kittens, and in some cases their Mammas as well. Please be patient if you don't see a lot of kittens on the Adoptions page just now. Many are too young to be going to their homes, but are just now getting to be old enough that we can start to show them. Check regularly on the Kitten Adoption page.
There are some real cuties that we know you are going to love. And for those of you who perhaps do not have the time for a kitten and are looking for a young adult cat, the Moms of the recent litters of kittens are truly some of the sweetest cats you could ever hope to meet. Stay tuned everyone.

Here are two more of the cats that have been kept in a shed for five years. These two are quite shy but slowly, slowly starting to welcome being petted. Walter, the orange one is a little worrying as he is not eating well. He was just a young kitten when he was put in the shed so the new sights and sounds he is experiencing are pretty overwhelming. Both these cats would really benefit from some patient souls just petting them. Let Beverly know if you can visit with them and help them get used to this scarey wide world.
Further note: yesterday, another one of these sad creatures arrived, a beautiful Siamese looking female. She is terrified, and pretty bouncey.
