Black Kitty Needs a Foster Home

Black Kitty Needs a Foster Home

Update: Black Kitty is now in a foster to adopt home :)

Black Kitty needs a foster home. He was a stray that was never claimed at the pound, and he's now been transferred into our care so that he can find a loving home. He is a big boy with a confident personality. He loves attention and is quite affectionate. We're not sure how he is with other animals, but he will do best in a home without children. If you can provide Black Kitty was a foster home, or to inquire about our foster program, please contact us at

VPAS will be attending the Vancouver Island Pet Expo this year and we'd love to see you there. The Vancouver Island Pet Expo is the largest gathering of pet owners on Vancouver Island. It promotes responsible pet ownership and helps draw attention to abandoned pets available for adoption. Many pet-related businesses, adoption societies, and retailers will be there.

This is Chance. He came to us from animal control after being found as an injured stray. We think that poor Chance was hit by a car; he has a broken pelvis and some wounds on his left side & legs. The break on Chance's pelvis cannot be fixed by surgery so must heal on it's own, in time. At this point he cannot walk and has to pull himself and/or flop to get around but he is improving every day! Fortunately, his pain is well controlled and he is a very happy cat with a wonderful spirit. Chance loves every minute of attention and just purrs up a storm any time his foster mom is with him.
