Charm City Animal Rescue is a non-profit organization located in Maryland. We assist shelters across the Mid-Atlantic seaboard with cats who are either scheduled to be put down, or they have some sort of special needs that prevent them from being adoptable while in the shelter. This includes illness, injury, disease, disorders such as Cerebellar Hypoplasia, as well as cats who are blind, deaf, pregnant, elderly, or all black.
We also rescue cats who are living on the street, and with the change of seasons comes the onset of Kitten Season. This is a phenomenon that happens when cats who have been in survival mode all winter, now begin to mate as the weather warms. Shelters see an explosion of kittens being brought in, and animal control is on round the clock calls for kittens in yards, under porches/decks, etc. Rescues work very hard to pull kittens from the shelters to alleviate the stress there, but with limited financial resources, we can only do so much. The goal of this fundraiser is to help fill our Kitten Season Fund which we use to pay for surgeries, vaccines, antibiotics, flea medication, dewormer, parasite medication, kitten milk replacer, as well as food and litter. With hundreds of kittens about to pass through our doors, we need your help!
