Fat Kitty City would like to express our sincere gratitude to everybody who helped make our fundraiser at the Crystal Basin Bistro & Cellars on July 29, 2015, a huge success. We enjoyed meeting so many of our supporters, volunteers, adopters and new friends that support our cause and put faces with names!
We would like to list the name of every Fat Kitty City donor that either came to the event, or sent in a donation to support the event, however, in respect to their privacy, we are not listing them individually, but “you” know who you are and how important you are to Fat Kitty City and its accomplishments going forward. It takes each and every one of us to do this work, as each and every life counts for the cats and dogs that are rescued.
We would like to ask that when you are out running errands or shopping to please stop in to some of the retailers listed below and express your gratitude for their participation in our fundraiser; let them know you are shopping at their place of business because of their kindness, and that by mentioning them, we are hoping to return the favor.
We are diligently trying to help our local community and outlying areas with their animal problems: from trapping to spaying and neutering animals (TNR), to providing food to help feed colonies, providing homes or medical care to animals that have been tortured or abandoned. All we ask in return is some small recognition (whether it be monetary, or food, or beds, medicines, etc), to continue to respond to the hundreds of calls we receive each month from people desperate for help.
Helping people and animals, it doesn’t get any better than that. We are all in this together.
God Bless you from the bottom of our hearts and all our kitties and doggies that have benefited from your generosity.
