THE STORY:

To our friends and family:

We are running the BIG 5K on March 17th for AMANDA and the millions of other homeless kitties!  Please support Jenny and I to raise money for Kitten Rescue so they can provide much needed medical care to many homeless cats, along with the funds to spay/neuter to prevent more babies, and for food!  Thank you!!  

  

Below is Amanda's story.  

 

Amanda is a shorthaired tortoiseshell female.  She is one of the survivors of the 2002 motel raid in Van Nuys CA.  There were 40 cats living in a room in filthy conditions.  Most of the cats were sick and had to be euthanized.  Amanda is approximately 10-13 years old.  It's difficult to determine her age because she was very malnourished when rescued and has no teeth.  But even without teeth she's got a great appetite.  She eats both wet and dry food.  Amanda was adopted shortly after the rescue but was returned to the rescue group in 2010.  Amanda is very sprite and affectionate.  She loves to sleep with you.  She prefers to be the only cat in the home and loves people.  Please check out her youtube video.

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)
