Please help us save homeless cats
The rescued cats at our sanctuary come from hard circumstances: the mean streets, the highway rest stops, behind restaurant dumpsters, patches of scrubland near businesses, high-kill shelters; most are born homeless. Many have medical problems that require continued treatment. Happily, they are now safe at our cat sanctuary; well-fed, well-cared for & loved. And it shows!
We help a lot of animals but there are still thousands that need the intervention of a kind samaritan for their very survival. Not everyone can take in 10 or 20 animals & give them a loving home. But you can help animals by supporting local rescue groups.
can be a part of happy endings!
The work of rescuing & providing for homeless animals is a labor of the heart. Please consider a donation to help us help cats. The support of other caring people makes all the difference in our efforts on the front lines of the animal over-population crisis.
We're hoping our site will inspire you to take action & become involved, more so if you already are!
There is a serious feline over-population crisis in this country. Millions of friendly, healthy cats are killed in U.S. shelters each year, simply because no one came to adopt them. And millions of homeless & abandoned cats breed in colonies in the shadows & corners of our cities & neighborhoods. Without human contact, these cats revert to their wild instincts & become feral. They struggle to eke out an existence behind restaurants & truckstops, in alleys & the woods, in cities, suburban & rural areas. They also have an impact on wildlife. And they are killed by the millions in U.S. shelters every year.
Life is hard for feral cats & is nothing like the life a pet cat enjoys. Hunger, illness, injury, parasites, predators, cruel people, & traffic are daily battles for cats living in parking lots or storm drains scavenging from dumpsters. Kitten mortality is estimated at 50%. When feral cats are taken to a shelter or removed by animal control, they are killed because of the faulty logic that they are unadoptable as pets. TNR is the humane way to maintain a colony of feral cats; killing them is wrong & unnecessary.
Humans must take responsibility & get this cycle of suffering under control by taking action — preventing litters of born-homeless kittens, spaying & neutering their pets, & using TNR for stray/feral cats. It's a daunting task but it CAN be done - & CR!FR is helping to do it!
Please — make time in your life to help needy & homeless cats & animals. Spay & neuter every cat (& dog) you can get your hands on & encourage others to do the same (see Low Cost Spay-Neuter Options). Never buy from breeders, pet shops or online & discourage others from doing so. Educate yourself on the harsh realities most animals face. Eat less/no meat/dairy. Help rescue groups, most are desperate for assistance & funds. Advocate for animals, intervene on their behalf, speak up, take action. Foster &/or adopt several cats! You will not regret it :)
