It's that time of year again! The time when mommy cats show up toting 5 kittens behind her! The time when mommy cat leaves behind beautiful little purr babies who cannot fend for themselves. The time when Miss Kitty meets a gentleman & forgets about her future as s single lady!! And the time when pet owners cannot care for litters of kittens or mommy herself!
YOU CAN HELP by becoming a foster for mommy, her kittens, or both!
Would you open your heart & your home to make difference?? Would you give mommy that second chance she deserves? How about her kittens? Will you help care for them so they can find exceptional furrever homes??
If this sounds like a 'can-do' job for you please fill out a foster application to the left of this message under 'Foster Home Info'.
You will never forget this rewarding experience!
We are excited to announce that we submitted a grant to Adopt-A-Pet's Veterinary Fund Grant! AND we won!! We were 1 of 10 winners in the US & Canada!! We are so proud & very excited to receive these funds- this means we can help more kitties!!
March 2014: We received a letter in the mail. I looked at the envelope & realized it was a check- because I was not expecting a check I was a little excited! It was from Petco Foundation, so I ripped into it grabbing the letter that came with it- the letter read that The Litter Box was the proud recipient of the Tree of Hope campaign that runs through the holiday season. As I'm reading my husband has taken the rest of the envelope, including the check out of my hands so I can read the letter better- in a large, gasping voice he says, "Oh my goodness Keisha!" I looked at the check & we received $1000! I immediately started bawling and could barely read the rest of the letter!! So if you can picture me screaming, "Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!" and hugging Nathan, then looking at the check, then hugging Nathan, wiping tears, then hugging Nathan, you would be picturing my reaction to a t. All inside my little post office- thank heavens it was after closing or else the lady would have called the insane asylum on me!
So with this story comes a tremendous thank you to everyone who donates through the register when Petco holds these campaigns! We know it is hard to consider giving a $1 sometimes, it's annoying for donation requests each time you shop- I get it! BUT please re-read the top paragraph & realize that your $1 goes to a cause that truly appreciates & needs it!
And the largest thank you of all is to Petco Foundation & our local Petco employees! Without the hard work & dedication of probing you for chunk change these guys would not have been able to choose us as a recipient! They rock on all levels & are considerate of how much it means to my rescue & the community to be able to provide for the kitties! Not all of them are still with Petco & there are some who are so new I don't know their names yet! BUT even as an outsider coming in to use the facility they are my family! They are monumental supporters and extraordinary friends!
THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! June 2014: Once Again we would like to thank the wonderful staff, our friends, at our local Petco for choosing us as
the beneficiary to the Spring-A-Pet grant! We received enough funding to purchase medicine needed for all our sick rescues! We cannot say 'thank you' loud enough to show how much we appreciate being chosen!
