Every Wednesday at 3:10pm, Mack and Woofy’s Pet Foods team up to feature a new local adoptable pet from one of our amazing island rescues.
This week we got to meet Sunshine from CR Paws!
You could have your own little ray of sunshine! This young mom is looking for a new place and people to call her own after living a tough life on the streets of Campbell River.
Sunshine earned her name! She is a very sweet and affectionate cat who loves to be pet. Although she’ll pass on being picked up, she’ll come find you for snuggle time. She is currently in a foster home with both cats and dogs, but has not been integrated at this time.
She’s a tough young momma who has earned her peace and quiet, so a potential adopter would have a laid back home, older or no kids, and no other pets.
Sunshine was trapped in the Shelter Point area after being spotted very pregnant and scared by a local. CR Paws was able to trap Sunshine and her 6 new kittens to bring them safely into care, and with 5 of the 6 kittens now adopted out, Sunshine is ready to find her furever home too!
Sunshine had a serious injury at the base of her tail when captured, which resulted in her tail being removed. She now has a cute little stub that doesn’t cause her any pain.
About CR Paws:
CR Paws is a non-profit registered charity based out of Campbell River and servicing felines on the entire North Island! They focus on controlling the feral cat population and preventing unwanted litters with their Trap and Neuter/Spay program. They work in collaboration with the Facebook group “Lost and Found Animals of Campbell River” to help animals find their way back home, or find their new furever home, whether it’s with an adopter, a feral colony or as a barn cat!
Their available animals can be viewed through their website, campbell-river-paws.web.app or on their Facebook page, CR Paws.
With kitten season upon us CR Paws could use all the help they could get! You can make monetary donations through their website, or donate product as well! They also have a awesome partnership with Woofy’s where you can donate your points towards the non-profit of your choice. They are always in need of items like kitten milk replacement, litter, food and bedding.
CR Paws also accepts non-animal items, like gas gift cards.
There are a bunch of volunteer opportunities with CR Paws available for every area of interest. Roles like trapping, drivers, feeding, fundraising, admin, fostering and more!
The easiest way to help the cause is to spread the word! The more people who know about the work CR Paws does, the more successful they’ll be helping animals!
