Back in April I asked readers to send in information about cat rescue organizations and fundraisers. This is the first of what will be a monthly update of the info received. Please consider making a donation to one or more of these organizations who are all working hard to help the cats. Even a small amount can help! If you have info about a cat rescue organization or fundraiser, please email a summary to kate [at] moderncat [dot] net.
- FurKids Bark & Bite Bake Sale (Atlanta, GA) – This cage-free, no-kill shelter in Atlanta is holding their Bark & Bite Bake Sale on Saturday, June 13 at Inman Park Pet Works. Atlanta Moderncat readers come on out and show your support and pick-up a yummy treat while you’re there.
- The Animal Rescue Site $100,000 Shelter Challenge (U.S. Nationwide) – Vote for your favorite petfinder.com animal rescue organization and they could win one of several prizes totaling $100,000. Voting ends on July 26.
- Save Our Strays (SOS) 50-50 Raffle (Maine) – Organization providing spay & neuter services and adoptions for stray animals in central Maine. They are going to have a 50-50 raffle on June 13. Tickets available at their yard sale today and tomorrow.
- Cat Adoption Team (CAT) (Portland, OR) – The Pacific NorthwestÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s largest nonprofit, no-kill cat shelter with its own full-service veterinary hospital. CAT uses FirstGiving.org for ongoing fundraisers where individual supporters like Moderncat reader Tabby Thompson can create personal pages to help raise funds for the organization.
- Alley Cat Rescue (Denver, CO) – Moderncat reader Jennifer works very hard to TNR (trap, neuter, release) cats in Denver, Colorado. She also makes sure everyone is vaccinated before they are returned. To raise funds Jennifer sells raffle tickets for her handmade dolls plus all proceeds from her Etsy shop go toward her homeless kitty rescue. Great work Jennifer!
- Cat out of the Canal (Kat uit de Gracht) (Leiden, The Netherlands) – This project plans to install life-saving ropes along the banks of the canals because apparently cats can fall into the canals and drown. The ropes will provide something for cats to grab onto so they can get out. For all the Dutch Moderncat readers, please take a look at this project and see if it is something that you might need in your community as well.
I’m so sorry if I didn’t get to your fundraiser in time! Please send updated info on future events.
