AlleyCATS Alliance recently received a $500 donation from the First West Credit Union through their Lead Well program.

Penticton employee Kyria Howard participated in the credit union’s Lead Well Program, which allows employees three days each year to volunteer with local non-profits. Howard chose AlleyCATS Alliance to be the recipient of her award.

AlleyCATS Alliance has been working with the feral and abandoned cats of the Okanagan since 2012 trapping feral/wild cats living in colonies, transporting to vets for health checks and to be spayed or neutered. Any kittens or socialized cats are removed to be adopted into loving families.

AlleyCATS Alliance is a nonprofit society dedicated to providing rescue, rehabilitation, medical and adoption, to feral, orphaned cats and kittens throughout the Okanagan Valley.
