THE STORY:

Friends, Family, and Donors-Anonymous, and everyone else:

I'm at it again. Marathon #3. Every time I sign up I wonder why I do it, but it's not hard to remember. I'm raising money for one of LA's greatest animal rescue organizations, Kitten Rescue. As much as I love running for purely selfish reasons, the opportunity to do some good with my miles is one of the greatest gifts of running.

I'm a foster parent for Kitten Rescue and am proud to be counted among the amazing volunteers who make this organization run and save lives every single day.

As most of you probably know, and for those who don't, I have three furry beasts of my own, all from shelters (including one LA native). I've been adopting cats for over a decade now, and I am currently fostering a great little guy who we pulled from one of LA's many kill shelters. Kitten Rescue is part of No Kill LA, where we are constantly fighting against the odds to make LA a no-kill county. 

Kitten Rescue is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that was founded in 1997, and we have 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. As hard as it is to give up our fosters, we know that one more animal placed in a loving home opens up our homes again for a new animal in need.

We are all  dedicated volunteers who devote much of our time to helping homeless animals, while juggling our own families, jobs, and lives as best as they can. I honestly don't know how most of our volunteers do it. I can barely keep track of my life between working full-time and fostering ONE cat. 

With so many causes out there, and so many people, animals, and others in need, I know it can be overwhelming to devote your time or money to one cause. There is a feeling of futility one gets when trying to do good when there is just so much wrong. We have to pick our battles and our causes. I've chosen animal welfare, and it is a cause that has changed my life in a fundamentally positive way, even if it can be downright depressing on a daily basis. But I'm a firm believer that “the greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”

So, please, consider donating. Every dollar makes a difference for us. And every dollar helps us save lives and come one step closer to making LA a no kill county.

Since we are a 501c3, donations made to Kitten Rescue are tax-deductible.
