EVENT: Honda LA Marathon 2012
EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2012
i agreed to run for kitten rescue with less than 14 days to the races. i said i'd run anything opening they had, whether it was the la marathon relay or the 5k. for me, it makes no difference, because i'm not running for myself - i'm running to solicite donations for kitten rescue.
all three of my cats were fostered and saved by kitten rescue. lily, 8, was a feral kitten who was tiny and frightened at first. molly and frankie were adopted together two years ago. molly was found abandoned in a parking lot, suffering from a severe eye infection. kitten rescue took her to a vet who performed eye surgery on her, but she is probably blind in one eye. her foster brother, frankie, was rescued from the compton animal shelter, where he was going to be put down.
kitten rescue not only saved these cats lives, they provided veterinary services, and their wonderful foster parents socialized them so that they would be the sweet, outgoing cats they are today.
please donate to kitten rescue by sponsoring me, or donating directly to 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 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.
Why join Team Kitten Rescue? Because the animals need you! If you walk or run the marathon for Team Kitten Rescue, you will be able to raise money to save the lives of homeless cats and dogs. And if this will be your first marathon, we assure you that it will be an incredibly rewarding and transformational experience. So it's a win-win for you and the animals. And no experience is necessary! So whether you are a seasoned marathoner or a couch potato who has never exercised, we would love to have you on our team. And for added fun, we'll have PRIZES for all team members!
