BENEFITING: CAT TOWN

ORGANIZER: CAT TOWN

EVENT: Saving Pets Challenge 2016

Hali Burbige

THE STORY:

I am raising money to support Cat Town in honor of Elliott, a sweet kitten that was part of a litter of cats I helped rescue during the summer of 2015, when his mother was dumped on the street in my neighborhood. I was in love with all five of the kittens as soon as they were born, but there was something special about Elliott and I found myself seeking him out to hold. I was absolutely heartbroken when I learned that Elliott was born with a congenital defect, and that it was unlikely he would survive. The vet assured me that there was nothing I could do.

While Elliott was only with us for six short weeks, I was so happy that I was able to give him a comfortable, safe home, and the love and cuddles he deserved for the time he was here.  But not all cats get that chance.

I began volunteering with Cat Town shortly after saying goodbye to Elliott. When I received an urgent request for fosters to help with two kittens that needed a temporary home while they recovered from an upper respiratory infection, I felt compelled to respond. Even though I was still sad about losing Elliott, I knew that this was a case where there was something I could do to help.

Cheyenne and Mars were with me for three months, and with a lot of time and patience, I had the opportunity to see them both begin to trust humans, and start seeking out attention and affection. Their sweet personalities blossomed. Seeing them both adopted into great homes through Cat Town made me feel like I was honoring everything I stand for in helping animals have a good life. 

I am lucky to be a part of the amazing work that the organization is doing, and I witness the love and care that everyone involved gives to these cats that might otherwise not get the chance to leave the shelter. I feel fortunate to be a part of something so incredibly special.

Cat Town saves those in most need of saving, but despite their transformative work, they struggle to keep their doors open every month. This campaign is to help them continue their work, and I'm asking you to help them by donating to support their life-changing efforts.

If you can't make a donation at this point, help me reach my goal by sharing this page on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Or, even better, send an e-mail to friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to my page!

Thanks so much for your generosity!
