ORGANIZER: Kitten Rescue
EVENT: Honda LA Marathon 2012
EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2012
This is the first year for Kitten Rescue to be an official charity of the LA Marathon, and we want to start off with a bang! I am fortunate to work with a group of amazingly dedicated volunteers who give so much of their time to save the lives of homeless animals in Los Angeles! These are some of the most knowledgeable animal people I've met, and they have helped me care for all of the sick, injured, abandoned critters I've found in the past couple of years. After getting a clean bill of health, most have now been placed in their forever homes!
Though this won't be my first marathon, it will be the most meaningful. I'm getting back in shape and raising money for my passion all at the same time! While Kitten Rescue saves many cats each year and adopts out about 1,000 into screened, permanent homes annually, we also help dogs and even the occasional bunny!
So, please help me help the animals and even the smallest donation can help our four legged friends in desperate need. Just click "DONATE" and your contribution is tax deductible.
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 10,000 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.
