Our public education and outreach program addresses the causes of the homeless and abandoned cat problem: importance of spay/neuter to control over population, and solving cat behaviour problems to decrease the number of abandoned cats through an effective three-prong community engagement plan: social media, outreach at community events, and strong partnerships with health care providers and schools.
KCP works closely with the Comox Valley SPCA. Our programs are complimentary: KCP manages feral cats and the SPCA handles adoptable surrendered and lost cats and cruelty investigations. KCP’s efforts have reduced the number of homeless cats coming into both organizations, thus SPCA’s euthanasia rate has decreased.
KCP has over 100 volunteers that help with all aspects of our operation and approximately 90 foster families, many of whom are specialized fosters serving pregnant cats, young litters, special need cats and cats with chronic conditions such as FIV or diabetes. KCP also has a team that is gifted in turning semi-social cats into social adoptable cats.
