Emergency Rescue - Sumner Co Cats

On October 2nd, Nashville Cat Rescue  executed an emergency rescue effort to save the lives of 38 cats and kittens who were scheduled for immediate euthanasia at a nearby animal control facility.  

Our compassionate fosters stepped up to save these lives, finding room in their bathrooms and recruiting new fosters, but now we need your help to cover the cost of veterinary care. Every life saved will need $200+ in vetting, including spays/neuters, vaccinations, flea treatments, and additional medications and vet visits for sick kittens and cats.

Adoption fees will cover approximately half of the costs, but it could be weeks before these kitties are adopted, and that still leaves nearly $4k to raise. NCR will not withhold care from the cats who need it, but this will deplete our emergency funds unless replenished. Your generosity will help us give these cats and future intakes the continued care they need and deserve.
Lastly, we'd like to thank the animal-loving folks at Sumner County Animal Control for all they do every day.  The rescue effort was set in motion when they called us begging for help, devastated that they’d had to euthanize dozens of animals after a large-scale “dump” at their facility, and still had dozens more to go today, 10/3. We're grateful that today all the kitties are safely with us, and the AC staff has a much better day ahead of them.
