There are a few ways in which you can make a huge difference.

We help cats that are abandoned in the streets & rescue cats from overcrowded high-kill shelters.

We are a 100% no-kill rescue and pride ourselves in taking many cats and kittens that are turned away from other rescues due to medical needs.

We are located just outside of Vancouver, BC and serve the lower mainland, as well as Tricities. We not only rescue but participate in spay and neuter programs, and public education.

Our goal is simple; to prevent the needless suffering and overpopulation crisis of unwanted cats.


Together we can make a difference to many innocent lives. We appreciate all of the help we receive as we continue saving countless cats and kittens throughout Metro Vancouver and beyond.

"Leanna has been teaching Yoga and Fitness for over 20 years and has had the honor and privilege to have studied with many amazing teachers. She has built “a village” of regular attendees that support each other through the good and bad times, and the various changes through life. Leanna believes whole heartedly in yoga’s transformative nature, and respects the power that yoga possesses to keep you grounded, focused, accountable, and aware of even the smallest moments on and off the mat.

Since she was a child she has always brought home cats and dogs in need, and as an adult, has been actively involved in animal rescue. She is currently a Foster Mom for the Cat Therapy and Rescue Society and while attempting to practice yoga at home, she has developed a fun way of doing yoga with her cats that she would like to share with you!

Please join Leanna in a 1 hour-hatha class that will be sure to stretch and relax you, warm your heart and make you giggle, and have fun with all the little paws that will run around wanting to practice Cat Pose with you!"
