Hello dear supporters, and happy 2016 from all of us at San Diego Cat AdopTion Service (CATS)!
It is hard to believe another year has passed. 2015 was a very productive year for CATS. All in all we took in 620 cats and found permanent, loving homes for 550 cats. Making the difference in the lives of that many wonderful animals takes a huge amount of time, care, and resources. As a supporter, your donation helped make it possible! We rely largely on monetary donations from supporters like you to make up our budget each year; your donation pays for food, litter, medical supplies, vaccines, vet care, and perhaps most importantly- spay/neuter surgeries. No one in our organization is paid- we rely soley on our huge team of amazing and dedicated volunteers! Whether they foster kittens or cats, work at our in-store adoption facilities, or participate in trap/neuter/release activities, all of our volunteers do what they do because they love cats and want to end the suffering of countless abandoned animals. We know you care about cats the same way, which is why you give. You can also contribute by talking to your neighbors, friends, and coworkers about spaying/neutering their pets! A world with no homeless animals is possible if everyone is responsible for "fixing" their pets, so please share what you know!
One of the many precious lives we saved this year is Lynwood, a very sweet kitty who was dumped in an alley by his owners and started approaching strangers, begging for help. As a young and friendly kitten, he had no "street smarts," and surely would not have survived for long. However a compassionate stranger called CATS and we were able to send volunteers to rescue Lynwood. He is now vetted, and healing from a few scratches in a loving foster home. Soon he will find a forever family and start a new and wonderful life.
Thank you again for making 2015 a successful year at San Diego Cat AdopTion Service! We appreciate your support and hope you will continue to consider us and the homeless cats of San Diego County in the new year!
