Friends in need

A small shelter helping cats just north of us experienced a tragedy on Friday night.... fire. The thing that rescues (and us) live in fear of. According to the Mansfield News Journal, three cats died and several others have not been found. The rest are being treated for smoke exposure and may not survive. The shelter also had a low cost spay neuter clinic attached.....

There is a go fund me site set up to help them. You can also send donations direct to them:
Stop The Overpopulation of Pets
1152 Lexington Ave.
Mansfield, OH 44907 

We can't find a website, but they have a page on Petfinder.
 From what we understand, they are committed to taking in cats that are in greater need and have experienced abuse or been injured.

This handsome boy is Ollie is we found him on their petfinder site.....  If you can help in any way, please do so.



  1. I am purring for this rescue and their kitties!

  2. We are so sorry to hear about the fire at the rescue. We is sending our purrs to all the kitties and the beans!

  3. Oh, god, those poor cats and humans too. Sending purrs and purrayers to them.

  4. This is certainly very sad to hear. We do hope they find the missing! Such a tragic loss...

  5. OMC, that's just terrible. One of the things we have nightmares about. Purring and praying...

  6. We had a rescue group experience fire last March, and many cats were lost. It's doubly bad in this case because of the neutering services that will no longer be provided. If the response there is anything like it was here for the rescue group, it should be operating again soon. Best wishes.

  7. Ollie is a beauty. Mommy sent a donation in memory of Prancer Pie 'cause he went to the bridge the same day as the fire. Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo.

  8. That is absolutely frightening!


We love to hear from you.....
