#GivingTuesday is an annual, worldwide effort to help garner donations for non-profits. This year, we're hoping to raise $5000 to keep our rescue programs going. Our Mascot for Giving Tuesday is a very special kitten named Pistachio.

Pistachio was found inside the engine of a diesel truck on a very cold winter day this past January. He was covered in engine grease and loaded with parasites. One of the parasites is a rare one, not often seen in the northeast called Lungworm and it gave him a horrible cough. On top of that, Pistachio had a number of additional health issues that required nearly 30 vet visits, a difficult surgery, and thousands in vet care.

We're 100% volunteer run, 501c3 non-profit organization, so when you make a gift to us, it goes to the care and feeding of our rescue cats and kittens, not to a marketing firm or a fundraising company. We do not receive large grants or gifts so every dollar is precious to us.

We can't provide for kittens like 'stache without all of you by our side. I hope you'll consider taking part in #GivingTuesday2018 with a gift.

Donate in lots of ways: Use our PayPal Me link, via Venmo: Kitten Associates, or mail a check to: Kitten Associates, P.O. Box 354, Newtown, CT 06570-0354. You can also join our big FUNDRAISER on Facebook, where you'll be able to see our progress and chat with other live-saving donors!
