Rescue cats from being euthanized at local shelter

72 Hour Rule

 In many cities, when a stray animal is dropped off at a shelter, it is mandatory to hold the animal for 72 hours. The main reason is that the animal is still considered to be owned by someone and the shelter cannot take ownership until after 72 hours. At that time the animal is considered adoptable, or not. The ones that are adoptable are given more time at the Shelter to find a home. Sadly, there aren’t enough homes to be found that quickly, for all of the cats. Such was the situation with Ozzie. He was pulled from the animal shelter by New Beginnings Cat Rescue in April. Ozzie is smaller than most kittens and wasn’t able to eat on his own. After only a short time with our volunteer foster, as you can see by this photo of Ozzie, he is beautiful, playful and ready to be adopted. Ozzie is an example of why we do what we do and we couldn’t do it without you. Thank you for your support.
