Have you ever wondered how to lower the barriers that are keeping loving families from adopting a cat? Maybe you already know that Cats R Cool - but you also know that it'll take a lot more than just one person to find a safe place for the millions of cats who enter the shelter system each year.
Eli, Andrew, Netto and Marcos are four kittens that have endured something so unimaginably painful, it hardly seems real.
At GreaterGood.org and The Animal Rescue Site, we are thrilled to support Cats R Cool, an exciting program that puts cats first in shelters, in homes, and in hearts across the nation.
These sweet kittens were born without eyelids. Every blink caused their fur to scratch their eyes. Imagine how many times you blink in a minute - every time they closed their eyes pain they felt was excruciating.
According to HSUS, 6 to 8 million animals enter the shelter system every year - and that's just in the United States. An estimated 3 to 4 million animals are euthanized in the US every year. Shockingly, only 2-5% of lost cats are reclaimed by their owners from shelters each year, and only 24% of cats who enter a shelter are ever adopted.
Sadly, Netto had to have his eyes completely removed - he has no sight at all. Eli, Andrew and Marcos all had to have eyelid reconstruction surgery. These sweet kitties have endured so much and are looking for love, care and a warm forever home!
Cats R Cool is a GreaterGood signature program. We're working closely with Cats R Cool to:
- Help cats already in shelters by providing supplies such as cat toys and beds... making them happier and calmer, and more likely to find a forever home
Help shelters cover the expenses of vaccinating and spaying / neutering cats, making them more likely to be adopted out
Help win the hearts of people who might be "on the fence" about adopting a cat - by showing the public how cool cats really are!
Give much-needed grants directly to shelters that are saving cats' lives every day.
Cats R Cool is committed to supporting sweet kittens like this in anyway possible. Join us.
Your gift, along with gifts from countless others, will make a very real difference to a cat who might not have made it otherwise. And it makes a "purr"-fect gift not only for the cat, but for the people who will discover their new cat is now a full-fledged, and much-loved, member of the family.
You can help. Just $20 helps support Cats R Cool, a GreaterGood.org signature program!
