Venus and Serena are 2-ish year old Siamese mix sisters who must go together. They are very affectionate and have stunning blue eyes to mesmerize you as you stroke their silky fur. They missed being in a home by New Year's.
We took two calls last week asking for help. One came from a man in Ludlow overwhelmed with 12 cats and one from Claremont who is closing their pound so we took 11 of their cats.
That meant we took in 23 extra cats. Fortunately all are very sweet natured and will make terrific companions. That leaves us with 42 cats and 15 kittens deserving a second chance. We had them all spayed\Neutered, tested, vaccinated, etc so they are ready to go.
Did you know? - Adoption fees do not cover our costs per animal. Our medical costs per cat are female $87.17, male $60.51. Then there is food, labor, insurance, etc. etc. and our adoption fee is $75. Dogs medical costs are female $104.45, male $86.90 with adoption fee of $105. Donations and fund raising help cover the rest of our overhead. We rely entirely on local friends and supporters to keep us going.
We need Windex, dryer sheets and a pooper scooper. Keep those used ink/toner cartridges coming - we get $3 each. Thanks to everyone who helps us this way.
Happy New Year everyone!
