Fire at cat sanctuary

I wasn't planning on adding another post today, but this just came to my attention and I want to share the word in case you are able to help.



The Last Hope Cat Kingdom, located just outside of Atwater (in the Central Valley of California) suffered a devastating fire on December 31. Nearly half of the cats housed at this nonprofit perished and the sanctuary with a ton of work to do to get back on their feet.

I'm linking to news story that was published regarding the fire. They are asking for donations of blankets, food and foster or adoptive homes for cats who survived the fire. Monetary donations may be sent to:

Last Hope Cat Kingdom
6660 Bailey Road
Atwater, CA 95301

Donations may also be made directly through their Paypal account at Last Hope Cat Kingdom.

I know we all just got through the holiday season, but I'm certain they'd appreciate anything we can do for them.


Thank you for reading. Please share if you can.

It is a really sad situation. I grew up in that area so when I heard about it I felt compelled to share. The Central Valley of California has a long ways to go before we can hold our heads up with pride over how we treat shelter animals. Groups like Last Hope do so much to try and turn the tide that they deserve some love and support when something like this happens.

That's so sad :*( . Mama says she's down to her last $50 right now until she finds a job... but when we get $$$ she'll send them some too.

Thanks so much for sharing, Caren. It's much appreciated.

Trixie, if good vibes are all you have to send their way, that's good enough. Things are rough for a lot of folks right now. All we can do is the best we can do.

OMG, I cried when watching this video. Poor poor babies. I'll be sharing it on Facebook and Twitter too.

Thanks for sharing, Avalon. I do know they are making progress in rebuilding but it was a terrible situation for them. Inch by inch they are working to get the place back up and running again.
