Happy Holidays from Paws & Claws Feline Rescue

As you already know it’s been a tough year for the economy. What you might not know is that it has created many challenges for Paws & Claws. Our adoptions are down in the past few months and we have over forty cats and kittens in the program who continue to need food, vetting, and care.

On a bright note, we have adopted out 61 cats and kittens to wonderful “forever families” in 2011, including Gabriel with a broken leg and Bobby, whose tail we had amputated. We are thrilled that they have homes now, however, their veterinary costs depleted our savings more than expected.

We will be at the Mooresville Petco the first three Saturdays in December and the first and third Saturdays next year from noon to 5 pm and hope to adopt more cats and kittens. We’d love to see you there!

We received our 501(c)(3) tax exempt status this year. We can now apply for grants and receive matching funds through payroll deductions, and of course, any donations to Paws & Claws Feline Rescue are tax deductible.

We greatly appreciate your support in the past and hope you’ll consider donating to Paws & Claws Feline Rescue this year. (No donation is too small.) Besides the benefit of being able to deduct donations given to us, you now have the choice to use PayPal with the Donation button on the right side of this page, or send to P.O.Box 5221, Statesville, NC 28687.

You can be sure every dime will be spent on caring for and thus saving cats and kittens - unlike large charities where ninety cents of every dollar goes to big salaries & administration costs.

We hope you have been fortunate this year and that 2012 will be even better for you and Paws & Claws Feline Rescue.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
