We have been busy with so many things at the Shack lately! I will try to keep this as brief as possible while conveying all that is going on.
Our GoFundMe campaign is in full swing and we are looking for ways of spreading the word. Any ideas can be emailed back to me. We are also on Facebook and Instagram so you can check on us at any of these places to see how we are doing. Our website is also under new management. So website is cattyshackrescue.org, Facebook and Instagram are cattyshackrescue, and GoFundMe is @ we-need-a-new-Shack.
Onto the best part! We have had several adoptions. Our kittens Lynx and Gizmo went to a new home together and get to be the only brother and sister duo in their new home. They were Victoria's kittens who is still with us. Also Sophie went home this week with a new family where we she will be treasured for the sweet girl that she is. And Margo was adopted yesterday. A pull at the heartstrings with that sweet baby. I won't go into detail about each kitty's story as you can find them on the website or Facebook.
We have taken 7 kittens in so far this kitten season. Sadly we lost one boy who didn't make it thru his neuter, a first for us. His foster took his body home to rest on her property. His sister had a bad reaction too but has pulled thru. Her name is Lilly and you will be seeing more of her as she grows up. She has now become big sister to 5 babies so she won't have to grow up alone.
We took in Blue, a 17 lb Russian Blue who has been on the street for years. He is learning about being in a home again. He was actually neutered and microchipped when found but from many years ago.
We have new volunteers and lots of plans at the Catty Shack so come by, comment online, shoot us an email, let us know any ideas or thoughts you might have. Your input is important.
As always, we couldn't do it without everyone of you and all the energy you put toward our success. We feel very fortunate to have all your resources behind us.
Best from Susan and Everyone at the Catty Shack
P.S. ... I guess I should mention that we did our first dog rescue last week! We took in a mom whose story would take a separate email, who presented us with 11 puppies 2 days later! Don't worry, they won't be at the Shack. They will be going into foster and mom is already spoken for!
