More about our volunteers

Been quiet on this end. The usual “panic” which we should be getting used to, but never do – when we receive notice on cats that are to be killed and having 24 hours to say yes or no. So far we’ve been able to say yes to them all – except for the feral cats but after this week, I’m afraid it will be no as our buffer homes are full. We are holding some cats ready to go to foster homes but need homes without other cats.

Some of the boys are feeling hormonal while others just are not fond of their own species.  We have students that will be leaving and need placements for their fosters.  We have one home so far so one boy will move there after his neuter. Supplies to be delivered today.

Spay, neuters, vaccinations and vet checks, a few adoptions this week, tail amputation, newsletter is almost ready to go, paperwork and tracking.

We were delighted that one of our adopters who works for RBC applied for a grant on our behalf. To earn the grant, volunteers had to donate a set number of hours to a charity. As we did not have a special event occurring during the timeframe, they were willing to do the ‘grunt work’ – the behind the scenes jobs.

RBC friends/co-workers sanitized about 10 crates used at the Adoption fair or recently donated, washed and folded sheets/towels used at the fair, drove around town posting adoption posters.  Soooooooooooooo great to have a break from doing those jobs – especially sanitizing the crates that are ordinarily done in a laundry tub and left to dry on the basement floor. What a treat to find them neatly piled arriving home at the end of the day.

Thank you to Kelley and her friends/co-workers at RBC! We also have 2 volunteers working on an eligibility application. There is no way we could possibly do it (although we tried and failed), due to lack of expertise and energy/time. We are so blessed to have such support.
