THE STORY:

Three years ago, I adopted a sweet tabby from the shelter.  When my roommate moved away with her kitty, my boy needed a friend.  So I decided to foster and discovered an amazing organization called

Kitten Rescue

In the past 2 years since then I have fostered over 90+ cats and kittens!  I also adopted a fantastic Orange/white Tabby Polydactyl I named Gabriel who is Dean's best and forever friend.

This is their 2nd year as a LA Marathon Charity, and I am proud to be participating again this year!  I hope to double the amount I raised, as well as inspire others to join us in running or walking the full or half marathon or the 5K.

The thing of it is, I can't do anything without YOU.

I am not a runner and have decided to do the LA Marathon Big 5K with some of my fellow KR fosters.  What gets me up to go train are the kittens I have personally fostered and helped save. 

It hasn't always been a basket of roses either.  Earlier this year, I had my first personal foster loss.  Three amazing kittens of mine were lost to panluekapenia.  One of whom died in my arms...

This year, I'm dedicating this fundraiser to them: Abigail, Nicademus, and Street Urchin.  Even though we lost them, they had a fighting chance and that's all we can hope to offer.

Because if I don't do something, who else will?

What will you do?

Would you buy that homeless man on the corner a cup of coffee?  Would you hand a burger to a starving vet?  Would you send gifts to chilren in third-world countries?  Would you give your old things to Goodwill? 

Will you donate ONE DOLLAR to save a kitten from death?

What is Kitten Rescue?  Kitten Rescue is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that was founded in 1997, and that has now grown into one of the most respected animal welfare groups in Los Angeles. Each year, our volunteers place over 1,000 cats and dogs into new homes. Since our inception, we have placed over 10,000 animals into loving homes! [To see where the cats we save come from, please click here.]

 

Who are our volunteers? Kitten Rescue is comprised of dedicated volunteers who devote much of their time to helping homeless animals, while juggling their own families, jobs, and lives as best as they can! At any given time you may find them bottle feeding orphaned kittens, nursing sick dogs and cats to health, visiting high-kill shelter to save whoever possible, running back and forth to veterinary clinics, trapping feral cats for spay/neuter, feeding feral cats, taming feral kittens, rehabilitating animals with behavioral issues, taking foster animals to adoption events, or delivering animals to their forever homes.

 

Why sponsor a Team Kitten Rescue member? Because you will be helping save the lives of cats and dogs who would otherwise not have a chance. Kitten Rescue relies on donations from the public to save the animals and pay for their veterinary care. The more money we raise, the more lives we can save! So please sponsor your Team Kitten Rescue member today.. Since we are a 501c3, donations made to Kitten Rescue are tax-deductible.

 

Why join Team Kitten Rescue?  Because the animals need you! If you walk or run the marathon for Team Kitten Rescue, you will be able to raise money to save the lives of homeless cats and dogs. And if this will be your first marathon, we assure you that it will be an incredibly rewarding and transformational experience. So it's a win-win for you and the animals. And no experience is necessary! So whether you are a seasoned marathoner or a couch potato who has never exercised, we would love to have you on our team. And for added fun, we'll have PRIZES for all team members!
