We're off this weekend so we can attend the 74th Annual New England Federation of Humane Societies conference in Warwick, Rhode Island. It's a 3-day long event with so many sessions, about all aspects of cat rescue, adoptions, socialization and more; that we're hoping to get re-energized and learn new ways to make life better for cats, our volunteers and adopters.
And by the way, did you hear the amazing news?
Our local paper, The Newtown Bee, wrote a story about Hanna Reps, an awesome young lady whose family adopted two cats from us 5 years ago. Hanna has become so inspired by living with cats and learning about them through our rescue and through her own studies, that she is now a blossoming cat advocate! It truly doesn't get any better than that.
If you'd like to read about Hanna and her GoFundMe to help Kitten Associates and our friends at Whiskers Pet Rescue, you can see the story HERE.
We did it! Thanks to everyone who donated or shared our messages on social media, we were able to raise over $5000 for our rescue program in just 24-hours!
I'm also very proud to say that out of the over 100 non-profits taking part, Kitten Associates ranked 33rd for most donors. This is great news. It means our message is getting out and that we have great friends who support our rescue efforts.
And though we did not raise as much as the top non-profits (over $100,000 in one case!), for a small, local rescue we still placed within the top 100 out of 415 registered organizations.
Thank you to everyone for their support and to all the folks at FCGives.org for helping us make dreams come true for cats and kittens in need.

We take on the tough cases, like Freya, who was given a 10% chance to survive. Today she's a 4-year old spitfire who's happy and healthy. We LOVE to do RESCUE, but we can't do it without resources.
Why it's Good to Give: Your gift is tax-deductible! AND...Because we're a 100% volunteer-rescue, all gifts go to providing for the care of our foster cats & kittens.
Laney & her daughter, Winnie, with their litters of kittens. Today this mom & daughter (along with Winnie's daughter, Piglet) live together in a loving home. The remaining kittens were adopted, too, and doing great. Spayed and healthy, these cats got to have a wonderful life, thanks in part to donations from people like you.
