Very, Very, Very Good Mews
I have something really AMAZING to share with you.
I just got a very nice email form Marguerite, the director of development over at the Humane Society. She said that the cats will be the priority when it comes time to distribute the funds raised at this year's Dog-A-Thon.
The feral trap/neuter/release and low-cost spay/neuter for “neighborhood strays” programs will benefit from this. The money will also buy new cat cages for the HS lobby and help fund the re-design of the cat areas to help minimize disease and make the cats more comfortable.
Now here's the really fabulous part...
Every single penny of the Itty Bitty Kitty Community pledges will go directly towards the cats. Specifically, the cat adoption program AND the build out of two more rooms for the cats. They need over ten thousand dollars to complete the build-out project, and if we are able to raise ten thousand (we're so close already), the Itty Bitty Kitty Community (that means you fine folks!) will officially be "sponsoring" a room and you all will be honored with a plaque!
These two rooms will be used to 'quarantine' incoming cats, so they'll have lots more room to hold cats, evaluate their health, treat them and find them homes. More room for cats, means more lives saved.
Isn't that just incredible????
You folks are so wonderful. Together, you're so powerful. You all came together and supported this cause and these kittens, and now look what you're doing. YOU are making a difference. YOU are funding a major project at the Humane Society. YOU are saving lives.
We are so deeply touched by your generosity and support. From the bottom of all of our hearts, we thank you for caring so much.
