Fantastic Finish, Everyone!

There is no good reason for adoptable cats to be euthanized. When I first worked in an animal shelter 15 years ago, I felt dread, anger, and heartbreak knowing animals that could live happily as loyal companions were euthanized because they "didn't show well" in cages. I've devoted much of my personal and professional life since to help adoptable pets live good lives with loving adopters.
Ann Dunn and Cat Town's current and founding teams have created an innovative paradigm in cat adoptions. Cat Town and OAS work together to remove stressed and shut-down cats from shelter cages and bring them to Cat Town Cafe & Adoption Center, an open and uplifting space where people can see the animals being authentically affectionate, playful, inquisitive, calm, and interactive. And Cat Town's committed foster caregivers are truly the lifeline for the animals in their care.
Your help is needed to sustain and grow Cat Town's lifesaving work. In addition to the money raised through individual team members, Saving Pets Challenge will award special cash prizes to the nonprofit teams that raise the most cumulative donations during the SPC campaign. Your gift on my page could have twice the impact by helping Cat Town become a top fundraiser.
Cat Town Cafe & Adoption Center is where cat lovers, coffee and tea drinkers, extroverts, introverts, and everyone else can enjoy a fun and relaxing time with adoptable cats. These daily visits help the cats increase their sociability, thereby further improving their chances to connect with loving adopters.
Please join me in helping Cat Town thrive so that more cats will be saved and live happy lives with caring and compassionate people. Thank you, friends.
For the animals,
