Metro Cat Rescue Homeless Moms



Metro Cat Rescue brings inside mother cats living in the streets so their kittens can grow happy and healthy and hope for good homes.  When the babies are on their own, Metro Cat Rescue provides a warm and safe place for the moms and continues to care for them.

Many hours are spent each day feeding, washing bowls, providing worm medicine and laundering the cats' beds.   So that Metro Cat Rescue can do more, we need your help!   We've run out of space availableto take in any additional cats.  And there's the time -- with the kittens and moms that we have here now, the day starts at 6am and ends at 11pm.   

Last winter, trying to fit more hours in the day by adding extra effort, I quite literally collapsed from exhaustion.  For three days after that, I could only be up for 15 minutes or so and then had to lie down to recover some strength.  

Metro Cat Rescue needs a bigger and better space.  We also need the funds to hire someone -- at least -- part time to help with the chores.  Hours are spent cleaning bowls and dishes.  Having an automatic dishwasher would make a world of difference.  A lot less time would go towards drudgery that then could be used caring for the cats.

Metro Cat Rescue has no cushion  of dedicated funds for medical care.  As it stands now, for each and every vet visit -- standard checkups and neutering, too, not just emergencies -- has to be paid for by pleading for help on Facebook.  This sometimes means that a sick cat suffers for days waiting for medical attention.

Metro Cat Rescue receives no grants or taxpayer dollars. To help kittens and cats in need, we rely on community support. So that Metro Cat Rescue can continue this mission and do more, we need your help. Please donate. It's quick and convenient and safe,

Metro Cat Rescue is in DIRE need of support! EVERY day we get requests that we don't have the resources to assist with. This means that kittens are born in the street because no one helps us to help them. PLEASE DONATE!

Take a look at the Photos on the Metro Cat Rescue Facebook Page and you'll see just some of the many cats that we've helped.

The dream of Metro Cat Rescue is to establish a facility to provide care for homeless kittens and cats with easily treated but contagious conditions -- those innocents that now elsewhere regularly are made to die. Sadly, a lack of funds has kept Metro Cat Rescue's goal on a distant horizon.

Without the necessary resources, each day there are poor moms and babies that we can't help. Indeed, last summer, there was a dip in donations and adoptions. I would not let the cats go hungry, so I scraped by eating little more than bread, rice and beans myself.

Metro Cat Rescue needs your help! We are DROWNING in bills for food, medical costs and supplies. Click on the Link to DONATE. If everyone reading this gave SOMETHING, we’d be well on the way to providing for homeless cats that now need to fend for themselves. THANK YOU!

Giving any amount will be a huge help. Unfortunately, right now we have no idea what our funding will be next month — or even next week. Helping to make it possible for Metro Cat Rescue to plan for the future will mean so many more kittens and cats will be saved.

Please do support Metro Cat Rescue! All too often I've had to spend my own grocery money to make sure that the cats were well fed. If Metro Cat Rescue had better facilities and a used SUV or van for transportation, there's so much more that we could do.
