Homes for Paws will provide funds to rescue 500 or more cats during 2012. Cat AdopTion Service rescues cats from lives of suffering on the streets or euthanasia in shelters and places them in loving forever families.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Millions of homeless cats are euthanized each year by shelters across the US. Countless more abandoned to live hard lives on the streets and die of starvation, predation, disease and car collisions. By doing nothing, the problem gets worse exponentially; one pair of healthy breeding cats can exponentially produce 420,000 offspring in a seven-year period.
How will this project solve this problem?
Cat AdopTion Service rescues cats and kittens from the streets, from shelters where they are about to be euthanized, and occasionally from homes where they are not being properly cared for. The cats and kittens are given the medical and preventative care (vaccines and dewormers) that they need and most important, TLC at foster homes. Once they are healthy and happy, they are spayed/neutered and brought to one of our four adoption facilities to find their forever family.
Potential Long Term Impact
Homes for Paws will allow Cat AdopTion Service to save the lives of 500 homeless cats. That means 500 happier families and fewer cats euthanized by animal control or living on the street.
