We talk about the rescue where mom volunteers all the time. It is where our foster kittens come from and go back to for adoptions. Many volunteers maintain colonies of feral cats and there is a huge outreach for TNR.
Well, a local radio station each year honors 20 Outstanding Women.
This year, Miss Mona, our fearless leader is one of the women being honored!!! We couldn't be more excited or more proud.
The reception is tomorrow night and we are sending mom as our representative. Here is some of what was said on the website:
Colony Cats Adoption Center opened in 2009 to provide a place for potential adopters to visit some of the great cats and kittens in need of a home. They provide a cage free environment for people to interact with the cats. Colony Cats also has been instrumental in getting over 9,500 community cats sterilized. They assist colony caretakers with shelters, trapping, food, medicine, and vet care. Since their inception, Colony Cats has placed over 7,500 cats in forever homes. “We offer assistance to pet owners when things are rough for them. Quite often, just supplying food and flea prevention is all that is needed to keep that pet in the family. We have helped several families and individuals by temporarily holding their pets until they could find another living situation. Everything we do is for the animals. Many lives have been saved because of the assistance we offer.”
All these kittie families were saved, spay/neutered and
adopted because of Mona and Colony.
