The Power of The Pussycat!

WE DID IT!!!!!


Thanks to the efforts of all of Carol's Ferals supporters, they WON the WA2S 1st Annual Animal Non Profit Year End Video Appeal Challenge !!!!!   And we know that we were all big helps in getting the word out and click'n and like'n and share'n our seeminly incessant posts... well, it "paid off" and in a big way.

We can only imagine what that kind of help that funding will bring (Harry thinks they need to start with a couple grand in catnip toys...) to help their TNR efforts, helping with medical treatment for seriously ill or injured kitties and providing a safe and loving refuge for kitties awaiting their forever homes. In 2012 Carol's Ferals had:

-189 adoptions of our adoption program cats (over 550 in six years)
-1,300+ strays and ferals neutered/spayed through TNR (over 6,300 in six years)
-Live saving treatment to well over a dozen critically injured cats that would have been euthanized at a shelter or died outside without care. Lil' Stevie, Gwen, Ceme, Tary, Faline, Winks, Reeve, Sam, Countess, Bobbi, Ludwig, Marlee, Forrest, Stanley, Biscuit, Barnabas, Madaline, Seishim, Rogue, Brooke....just the tip of the iceberg."


Tipp's rescue, UN-Cats, had help from Carol's Ferals in a TNR project in which they helped a colony of over 20 feral cats in our area.  Their volunteers are committed, caring and loving people, who work tirelessley on behalf of ones with no voice of their own.

As we saw back in the "Cat Ruler of the World" campaigns and on your posts and websites that cat rescues and shelters are a big part of your lives.  Many of us came through a shelter or rescue (Thank you A.C. Paws!... Love, Dexter)  in some cases, whole families! We know that you (and/or your humans) give their time, blog space and hearts to helping shelters in your area and we know how much it means to them, and all the kitties (and woofies) still waiting to go to their forever homes.  We encourage you to keep fighting the good fight and keep giving a little time, money or voice to a group near and dear to you.  Together we can all help!  And we do. And it makes a difference.  And it MADE a difference, a pretty big one at that.  Thank you all from the bottom of our purry little hearts...
We're getting a much needed rest after campaigning!

  2. Helping shelter kitties is a very nice thing to do. We like Space Coast Feline Network because that's where Raz came from.

  13. We were happy to help spread the word and were happy to hear that they won....they didn't quite win the money though...they won a partnership with Google+ who will help them market themselves on Google....that should still help them get more money.
