Here’s a creative fundraiser! Shadow Cats Rescue is raffling over 40 different $50 gift cards from a wide variety of retailers, everything from Barnes & Noble to IKEA to Target. You can buy as many chances to win as you like at a suggested donation of $2 per ticket. Get all the details, and your tickets, here.
Established in 1997, Shadow Cats is a non-profit organization in central Texas dedicated to improving the lives of feral (or, as they like to call them, Ã¢â‚¬Å“scarelÃ¢â‚¬Â), stray, and abandoned cats Ã¢â‚¬â€ especially those deemed Ã¢â‚¬Å“unadoptable.Ã¢â‚¬Â Founders Sheila Smith and her husband Roy (a veterinarian) Ã¢â‚¬â€ along with a crew of about 40 volunteers Ã¢â‚¬â€ are also involved in TNR efforts in the area (300 cats last year alone). The Shadow Cats sanctuary has a room dedicated to cats with Feline Leukemia, fully equipped with its own kitty cam so you can keep an eye on everyone while you work. It’s very fun to watch! You’ll get to know all the cats on the kitty cam.
Do you know of any other special fundraisers benefiting cats?
I’ve received several emails from readers about different cat rescue organizations. I’d like to find a way to share this info, so I’m thinking of creating a monthly round-up of cat rescue fundraisers. Please email information about specific fundraising activities at your local cat rescue or shelter to kate [at] moderncat [dot] net and I’ll be happy to post once a month.
