Emmitsburg colony

$2,325 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 20 people in 5 months
It all started with a single calico kitten.  She was pregnant when she got three, and very hungry.  The Sharers couldn't turn her away so they started feeding her and soon she was the proud mamma of 5 babies. 

It wasn't soon before the babies had babies, and those babies had babies. 

16months later the Sharers realized it had gotten out of control with 33 cats and kittens, most under 1year old.
They reached out to us for help, and because they have other commitments we offered to help them financially, and help them fundraise to get their cats vetted.

We will be altering and vaccinating all thier cat over the course of 2 months. We have all the appointments set and just need to be sure we can pay for them.

Please help us keep our promise to help the Sharers care for their cats.

Thank you!

We have a total of 25 cats spayed/neutered and vacccinated!!

Only 7 more to go, however the caretakers need a little break. We hope to finish before spring though, so there will be no more kittens.

Thank you all for making it possible.

We truly are blessed to have so many people caring about these kitties. 7 more are scheduled to go to the vet on Thursday the 28th, and 10 more scheduled on Oct 11. By then we will almost be done. We will post updates as we go and let you all know how the kitties are doing.

We make sure they all get a rabies and distemper vaccine to keep them as healthy as possible.

We will be stopping the population explosion here, but there are many other many other colonies just like this that need our help. We always need funding, so look for our GoFundMe campaigns, our facebook page which has a donate button, and our website ( www.tipmefrederick.org).

Thank you all!!!

We had to postpone our vet appointments till next Thursday. And we are only half way to our goal of $200 in order to get the next 3 vetted.

The Sharer's are planning a yard sale to help fund our project. Look for upcoming details. And we may have a paint party in the works. We try to help people any way we can!

Thanks to those who've helped so far. Please help us keep our commitment to the Sharer family. We have many volunteers working to help them and they are taking good care of all of the kitties. We just need to stop the population explosion!
