NEWS & EVENTS

celebrating the 2017 summertime challenge

The only word that fits our feelings is “wow”. You did it – YOU, our amazing, lifesaving supporters have not only met the Challenge we asked for your help with: you have SURPASSED it. You, in fact, OBLITERATED it. As of today, we have raised an incredible $69,268 for the kitties, and checks are still coming in through the mail!!! We are over the moon and our hearts are full of love and gratitude. Thank you. And we’ll say it again: Thank you. And once more, for good measure: THANK YOU!!!!

 

NOVEMBER adoption promo

 

thank you best friends animal society!

Cat’s Cradle is pleased to have received $1600.00 in financial assistance from national animal welfare organization Best Friends Animal Society to facilitate 40 spay/neuter surgeries of owned cats in the three zip codes representing the highest intake of cats into the Rockingham Harrisonburg SPCA. With this financial aid, we can continue to reduce shelter intake into the SPCA and thereby reduce euthanasia of healthy, adoptable cats and kittens. Cat’s Cradle is an active partner in Best Friends No More Homeless Pets® Network which offers help and support to animal rescue groups and shelters that save lives in their communities. We are proud to partner with Best Friends!

Best Friends Animal Society is the only national animal welfare organization dedicated exclusively to ending the killing of dogs and cats in America’s shelters. A leader in the no-kill movement, Best Friends runs the nation’s largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals, adoption centers and spay and neuter facilities in Los Angeles and Salt Lake City as well as lifesaving programs in partnership with more than 1,600 rescue groups and shelters across the country. Since its founding in 1984, Best Friends has helped reduce the number of animals killed in American shelters from 17 million per year to an estimated 4 million. By continuing to build effective initiatives that reduce the number of animals entering shelters and increase the number who find homes, Best Friends and its nationwide network of members and partners are working to Save Them All®.

petsmart charities field grant awarded    

We are so grateful to PetSmart District Manager Larry Wilkerson, who nominated Cat’s Cradle for a $2500 field grant – – thanks, Larry, and PetSmart Charities!!! With this grant, we were able to purchase a much-needed new microscope for our licensed vet tech, Christy Tabor, to use in doing in-house lab work for our kitties, saving on outside lab fees.  We were also able to purchase a flat-screen monitor and two “kitty” cams to outfit our temporary downtown center, so that we can show live feed videos of our adoptable foster kitties in action!  Because we are not able to have cats in person in our temporary center, we will rotate the kitty cams among our foster homes so that visitors to the center can “interview” our adoptable kitties on film.  We really appreciate the funding from PetSmart Charities so that we can continue to keep our kitties healthy and find them wonderful furrever homes!

petco foundation grant awarded

GREAT NEWS! The Petco Foundation has made a $5000 grant to help Cat’s Cradle continue to expand

our spay/neuter and TNR programs in Augusta County. The grant will pay for direct surgical expenses for

spay/neuter procedures, as well as the cost of rabies vaccines needed, to be offset by client copays

where possible. Cat’s Cradle is committed to reducing shelter intake of owned and stray cats in Augusta

County and this generous grant will help to alter approximately 100 cats and kittens, thus preventing

thousands of litters of kittens. We are so grateful for the continued support of the Petco Foundation and its investment in our

lifesaving programs! For more information about the Petco Foundation, read below and visit
