Dear Barbara, I've devoted …
Dear Barbara,

I've devoted hundreds of hours over the past two years to help Cat Town provide shy, scared, sick, timid, old, and injured cats live good lives with loving adopters. This summer I am fundraising to help them continue their work, despite the insane cost of rent in the Bay Area and the costly needs of the special cats they help.

Right now Cat Town is in second place in the Saving Pets Challenge, and if they can make it to first by July 10, they’ll receive not just your donation but an extra $10,000. They’re SO close—and to help them get there, I’m asking for your help.

Your gift means that my volunteer work can continue to make a difference. But your donation does more than support my personal efforts—it helps redefine what “adoptable” means among shelter cats in Oakland and beyond.

As you might know, Cat Town set out to save the cats who are still largely considered unadoptable. These are animals that can live happily as loyal companions, but are euthanized across the nation because they "don't show well" in cages. Shy cats. Scared cats. Cats under tremendous stress, and cats that are grieving the loss of their families. Cat Town helps cats feel safe and find their confidence. They were told again and again that what they wanted to do was impossible. But in just five years they have helped slash the shelter's euthanasia rate from 42% to less than 7%, all while focusing on the animals other rescue organizations--even "no kill" shelters--said couldn't be helped.

Your support means that despite the tremendous cost of saving these lives Cat Town can keep its doors open to continue this work. I hope you’ll join me in supporting a community and cause I care deeply for, and make a donation today, at

With gratitude,


PS - your support last year to my campaign was an unexpected delight. I am still so grateful, and hope that you'll consider supporting me again.

Hello! I just wanted to sen…

I just wanted to send out a note to let you all know that through your support, this campaign has reached half of the goal I set--which at the time I felt was pretty darn ambitious, to put it mildly. I'm incredibly grateful for your generosity, and for your cheerleading. You are all inspiring, wonderful people!

I also wanted to share this short article that came out today about Cat Town, which quite eloquently lays out the difference your gifts have helped make to this little nonprofit I love so much.

Also: Cat Town is in 5th place for the Saving Pets Challenge. While that doesn't get us that $50K bonus, it is a standing that DOES come with a $10K bonus, and will help save so many lives if we can keep it up. This would not be possible without your generosity. Thank you for giving, sharing, and caring!

Warm regards,
