PENTICTON - A Penticton animal aid group rallied massive support last Sunday for a national campaign to help kittens with medical conditions.

AlleyCATS Alliance held National Oreo Cookie Day at the Canadian Home Builders Home and Renovations Show and at Real Canadian Supertstore on Sunday, March 6.

Donated Oreo cookies courtesy of Marketplace IGA in Okanagan Falls and Real Canadian Superstore sold out at both events, all proceeds going to AlleyCATS Alliance cats and kittens with medical conditions.

The organization’s “spokescat” - named Oreo - was rescued off Summerland streets and found to have a rare congenital condition, of which only 60 cases are known worldwide.

Oreo, through medication, has since grown five centimetres, has gained a half pound is back to being a healthy cat again.

AlleyCATS offers thanks to Dr. Julia Gray at Jacobson Veterinary Services in Kelowna, who played a big role in providing care and treatment for Oreo.

Oreo cookies will continue to be sold at the clinic and everywhere AlleyCATS is on location in order to continue support for cats in medical care.

AlleyCATS Alliance is a registered charity dedicated to providing rescue, rehab, medical care and adoption to feral and orphaned cats and kittens throughout the Okanagan.
