EVENT DATE: Mar 17, 2013
Dear friends of kittens, cats, puppies, dogs, all pets large and small,
I have been training for the Los Angeles Marathon and am also fundraising on behalf of "Kitten Rescue", which is an authorized LA Marathon Charity. It's a wonderful group that's doing incredible work rescuing and finding adoptive homes for so many pets in need. But I'll let them speak for themselves -
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.
So, there you have it. I would love to raise $1,000 or more for this wonderful organization and for all the pets whose lives they save and enrich. Can you help me out, please? Thanks so very much,

ON BEHALF OF THE HOMELESS CATS AND DOGS WHO YOU WILL BE HELPING SAVE, WE THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
