BENEFITING: Kitten Rescue
ORGANIZER: Kitten Rescue
EVENT: 2014 ASICS LA Marathon
EVENT DATE: Mar 09, 2014
This year, I committed to run my first marathon, and I'm running to raise money for Kitten Rescue. All three of my cats were KR cats - one rescued from the mean streets of LA, another from the Compton animal shelter, and one feral little black kitten. Molly was found with one eye so seriously infected that she needed surgery, and is likely blind in that eye.
Why give to KR? The money raised goes for the care of homeless cats and dogs. It goes for veterinary bills, microchipping, spaying and neutering. KR will continue to foster animals and care for them until they're adopted. That could mean years, but they're in it for the long haul. They look out for the welfare of animals that have been abused, neglected - even running into traffic to rescue animals hit by cars.
Your donations are tax deductible, and every dollar counts. Thank you for supporting my run, and Kitten Rescue!

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.
