A new kitty once a week! Click here to find out how your cat can appear on Van City Kitty.
This week is "Adopt A Less Adoptable Pet Week" and these two are a purrfect example of how adopting an animal who may not be the most photogenic, who may be a little older, or who may need a bit of extra care and attention can be the most rewarding experience for you and your family.
Wilbur and Olive were rescued through VOKRA, and they are having their annual walk fundraiser this weekend!
Here are the deets on Wilbur and Olive as submitted by VIA reader : Valerie!
|Names: Wilbur and Olive|
Other Info: Olive was found wandering a backyard - a victim of irresponsible 'backyard breeding,' abandoned because she wasn't profitable. Wilbur was found in a warehouse, abandoned by his previous owners (more backyard breeders), left to fend for himself. He was in bad shape, being beat up by local feral cats. Wilbur was also in desperate need of eye surgery, which VOKRA funded.
These two would have surely been considered unadoptable at many shelters because of their special medical needs, but because a a dedicated group of people, including their new family, decided they deserved a chance they are now in a loving forever home, and have touched the lives of many.
