In spite of the best efforts all the little groups like Animal Advocates Society BC is still awash in excess cats and kittens both feral and domesticated. The moral duty to prevent animal-suffering is acted on by hundreds, possibly thousands of women in BC, quietly and without any money but their own or what they can raise at garage sales, without any help from the BC Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (BCSPCA) which still kills many cats and refuses help for feral cats (except for a very few). Animal Advocates Society of BC (AASBC) has been paying the vet bills for these cats and women for decades, thanks to the warm-hearted generosity of our donors. You and I and AAS can help to stop the callous disregard for cats in BC caused by the straightforward market force of more product than purchasers. Cat over-production is still so acceptable that without an all-out war on killing cats - in which the BC SPCA generously participates - all the unremitting and heart-breaking work these devoted women do stops much of the present suffering but so far, has not been able to prevent future suffering, because there is only so much that women without the BC SPCA's $24 million financial resources can do.
