Cats across the blogosphere this year are doing something a little different. We are each picking a local charity and giving back. Summer from Sparkle's blog is organizing it and has a link set up for all the blogs participating.
We thought long and hard about who to donate to around here. We live in a large with with lots of rescues but wanted to pick a smaller one that may not get a lot of support.
We decided to donate to Hospets. (they are on facebook too) They are a group that does several things:
1. Provide food and vet services for elderly and hospice patients
2. Provide transportation to vet appointments
3. Provide respite care for those individuals that are going into nursing care and need short term placement of their pets
4. Help find homes for animals displaced by the death of their owners or for owners that are no longer able to care for their pets on their own or with help
Mom took food, litter, treats and toys.
