Cat Shelter in Progress

$1,127 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 66 people in 26 days
The flood trapped my cat Blanca under our house. We heard her crying for help. After several minutes of trying to get to her from the outside of the house, I realized the water was rising fast. I was outside trying to get her to swim to me from under the house, but the water had already risen up to the edge of the house. I couldn’t see her. I went inside sobbing, feeling helpless and found my husband using a hammer to break through the floor board. I could hear her drowning. She was running out of time. Her body must’ve been exhausted. Luckily Blanca had found an air pocket that kept her alive long enough for us to get to her. 

Sorry about my sobbing guys, I love my cats so much. A hole in the floor beats a hole in my heart. ❤️ Losing a pet is unbearable but losing a pet to drowning? I just can’t!  

I would like to thank everyone who has helped us achieve our 1st goal of $1,000, which will be used 
to take our cat Blanca to the vet, and to repair the house floor. After a lot of consideration, my husband and I have decided to turn our second house which is on the same property as our primary home into a shelter for cats. This house has two small rooms, a large master bedroom and a large living room, two showers, a kitchen and plenty of open area outside where cats can run and play to their hearts desire--we mainly use it for storage, but the flood damaged everything we had in it including the interior walls. We're currently waiting on the American Red Cross, and other local organizations to help us clean it out. Our new goal is to raise $10,000 which we think should be enough to rebuild the interior of the house and purchase cat toys, play areas, food, and help with taking our rescue cats to see our trusted animal veterinarian. It would be a dream come true if we're able to raise the funds to build our very own cat shelter. Please help if you can.  We'll keep y'all updated with our progress. 

Thank you. God bless.

To save my cat from the flood, my husband had no choice but to break through the floor board. So glad he did. As you’ll see in this video, we were able to rescue our cat Blanca.
