BENEFITING: CARSON CATS RESCUE
Carson Cats is a cat rescue that is dedicated to rescuing cats and kittens from the 6 Los Angeles County shelters, mainly Carson Shelter located in Gardena, Ca. Over the past 10 years, Carson Cats has rescued over 11,000 animals from the Los Angeles County Shelter System which has one of the highest euthanasia rates in the country. In 2015, the LA county system killed over 17, 564 cats were euthanized as compared to 5, 278 dogs that were euthanized. Only 7, 642 cats were adopted as compared to 17.750 dogs that were adopted (see http://file.lacounty.gov/dacc/history.pdf for more LA County statistics). Our small rescue was responsible for 15% of those adoptions.
The Carson Cats rescue program led to the adoptions of more than 1100 animals in 2015 from the Los Angeles County Shelter in Carson, thereby saving their lives. In 2016, we have all ready rescued over 750 animals. We need funds though to continue to help. Our expenses run over $15,000 per month to cover all the medical, food and supplies for our animals.
It takes a village and we are asking every one of our supporters and animal advocates to donate just $10 so that we can raise enough funds to continue saving lives. Carson Cats Rescue is a private, volunteer only organization and all donations go directly towards the vetting and care of our animals. Carson Cats provides veterinary care, spaying and/or neutering, FIV/FeLV testing, and placement in homes.
