THE STORY:

Hey Everyone! 

 

I had decided to retire from marathon running because well frankly, running marathons hurts. A lot. But then Kitten Rescue put together an LA Marathon team and I couldn't resist. This is a fantastic rescue that saves cats and dogs. Stella, in the picture, was found as a tiny baby in the trunk of a hollow tree as it was being cut down. A Kitten Rescue volunteer took her home and bottle fed her. I adopted her at approximately 5 months old and I don't even have the words to describe how much I love her and what happiness she brings to me. Without Kitten Rescue, she would have ended up euthanized at a shelter or worse. Thanks to Kitten Rescue she has a home and I am blessed to call myself her Mommy. 

Everyone knows how much animals mean to me, especially cats. Please help me to raise money to save them.

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 12,000 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 Team Kitten Rescue? 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 Team Kitten Rescue today. If you know one of our team members, you can donate directly on his/her individual crowdrise page, and the amount will reflect on this page as well. 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!

As a Team Kitten Rescue participant, you will receive incentives for raising funds.

 

When you raise:
 

  • $1000.00 you will be reimbursed for your marathon registration fee ($145.00 for full marathon, $125.00 for relay per person/$250.00 per team)
