SHADOW CATS RESCUE wrote -
Shadow Cats has been serving the Austin and surrounding areas since 1997. We are as passionate about our work today as the day we first opened our doors to cats in need. Our immediate work is directed towards the special needs cats currently in our care, our Trap, Neuter and Return (TNR) program and to maintain our present facility in order to support as many cats as possible.
The need for our services is tremendous. We are often the last stop- the safety net- for many cats. With a new facility and with your support, our doors will open to many more feline leukemia, injured or ill cats in need.
Our Sponsorship Program continues strong. Sponsorship of any of our cats at $20 per month helps us sustain our budget for veterinary needs. As the number of cats we care for increases, veterinary costs also increase.
Shadow Cats' "One Life Fund" enables our organization to reach out and assist other rescues or individuals in acute situations where a cats' safety is compromised. The One Life Fund is a way to give back to other cats beyond Shadow Cats scope of care with designated funds. In 2013 we distributed over $2,000 and in 2014 we were able to assist with over $4500 in designated donations to help cats with critical needs ranging from post operative surgery complications to emergency cat food purchases to helping rescues save cats from high kill shelters.
We are home to 90 special cats and we have sterilized over 6500 cats to date through our TNR program.
Every life matters and we are working hard to impact as many as we possibly can!
