Cowichan Cat Rescue was formed in 1999 when we found “Rocky,” an old, sick feral cat desperately in need of help and discovered there was no help available for such cats in the Cowichan Valley.**
Cowichan Cat Rescue is a federally registered charity operated by a Board of Trustees and a group of volunteers dedicated to improving life for homeless cats in the Cowichan Valley.
Cowichan Cat Rescue operates a “trap, neuter, and return” program (a “TNR” program) for feral and wild cats. Cats are trapped and taken to one of the many local vets who support our program, where they are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, checked over and treated for parasites, and then returned to the place where they were trapped.
After their return, the cats are provided whenever possible with a regular supply of food so they are no longer in danger of starving when hunting gets bad in the winter months.
LOW COST SPAY/NEUTER IS BACK!
Cowichan Cat Rescue is back with our Low Cost Spay Program. Open to anyone living below the official poverty line within the CVRD and Municipality of North Cowichan, from Malahat to Ladysmith, including Lake Cowichan area.

** Don’t leave us hanging! What happened to Rocky???
We are happy to report that with some privately donated money, Rocky got the medical attention he needed and lived the final days of his life in comfort, surrounded by affection, warmth and food. Such should be the life of every cat.
