THE STORY:

I'm participating in the 2014 Charity 5K for Kitten Rescue whose dedicated volunteers save thousands of innocent cats and kittens and dogs from miserable lives lived on the streets; from suffering painful sickness and injury and starvation, from being abused and neglected, and, sadly, from being killed (why use euphemisms) simply for existing. 

The attached video explains more about what Kitten Rescue does. It takes a few minutes to watch you'll learn why KR is such a worthy cause. To learn about individual success stories, please visit the pages of my fellow team members who have made videos or visit http://www.kittenrescue.org.

Money is necessary for saving the animals! Any donation, however small it may seem, is huge! 100% of donations go to the care of the animals.

Your donation will make the difference between life and death for an innocent defenseless animal who, through no fault of its own, is at our mercy. 

 

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

Kitten Rescue wrote -

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 13,000 animals into loving homes!

 

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.

If you are a business looking for a tax write off and a way to promote your business, please consider sponsoring Team Kitten Rescue.
