The Purr Project, Inc. is a 501(c)3 organization whose primary duty is to rehabilitate and give a second chance to good felines that would otherwise be euthanized because of trauma resulting from an accident, abuse, or abandonment. The Purr Project is based at Central Hospital for Veterinary Medicine - a 24-hour emergency facility in North Haven where our location gives us natural advantages as many of our volunteers are veterinarians or veterinary technicians and can provide 24-hour care for our animals. The Purr Project is proud of its adoption record. Over 120 cats are adopted through our organization annually.
But The Purr Project is more than just an animal rescue. Through The Purr Project Foundation, we give academic scholarships to students dedicated to helping animals, and our community arm - The Beebe Anti Cruelty Institute researches the human/pet bond and seeks to address community issues like, “Animal Abuse and the Circle of Violence”.
The Purr Project is embarking on its most ambitious endeavor ever! We have need to raise $50,000 to cover the rising costs of animal medical care. Rehabilitation means surgeries, specialists, and in many cases, intensive socialization. Our medical providers work with us medically and financially so that we can help as many of our “cubs” as possible but as you can imagine, we incur large medical bills. The last 3 years have been difficult for the Purr Project as they have been for many in this age of austerity and shrinking budgets. We have fallen behind. In order to catch up and continue doing our life’s work, we have to raise $50,000.
Our future is bright but not assured. The wonderful animals in our care depend on us daily to provide for them and we always will – but we need your help.
