In October 2020, KittenSnatchers, a newly registered 501 (c) (3) animal rescue service, rescued their first cat, “Annabelle Lee” – and they have not stopped since.
PHILADELPHIA, PA, UNITED STATES, Aug. 24, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – Have you heard of the new KittenSnatchers cat rescue in Philadelphia? Amid the current COVID-19 pandemic, founders Katrin Ferge and Somer Black saw the ever-growing cat population problem in the city of Philadelphia and knew they had to do more to help. As active volunteers who have worked with local emergency services and shelters over the years and wanted to make a bigger impact, the natural next step was to start your own rescue.
In October 2020, KittenSnatchers, a registered 501 (c) (3) animal rescue service, rescued their first cat, “Annabelle Lee” – and they have not stopped since.
Katrin Ferge is a marketing pro and Somer Black is a trained nurse – both women still work full time and spend their free time running this rescue and saving lives.
In the past 10 months, KittenSnatchers has rescued over 250 cats and kittens from the streets of Philadelphia. Most of these animals are found outside by good Samaritans who then seek help from the rescue. When space permits, KittenSnatchers offers these cats a safe foster home or helps finders with resources and contacts to the many other rescues in Philadelphia – “Sometimes it takes a village to make a difference and the collaboration between rescues is extreme important, ”says Somer Black!
KittenSnatchers is also a rescue partner of the Animal Care and Control Team (ACCT) to rescue endangered cats and kittens from the local animal shelter. These animals are often at greater risk of death and must be removed from the shelter immediately. Katrin Ferge explains: “We are specifically focusing on newborn kittens as they are at the highest risk of not leaving the shelter alive. Our bottle baby nurses are very committed and give everything to save these little ones. ”
Every animal rescued by KittenSnatchers is placed in a foster home until it is medically released for adoption. For some, this just means waiting until they are old enough to be spayed / neutered and vaccinated. For others, it’s about addressing health issues they may have. A young kitten named Malice is currently in the rescue. Baby Malice was rescued from the streets of North Philadelphia with her sister Hatred. Due to poor health, Hatred died within the first week, but Malice is still fighting. She has seen several vets to find out what is wrong, but so far she has no clear diagnosis. Your foster care center takes care of them around the clock between their medication and constant feeding. Kitten Snatchers does everything possible to save Malice’s life.
“As a charitable rescue service, we rely heavily on the generosity of individuals and companies for financial assistance. Donations are always welcome and welcome – money or donations in kind – we need both! ”Both Katrin and Somer emphasize. Without the help of community-minded individuals, Kitten Snatchers will not be able to save the endangered cats and kittens from the streets of Philadelphia.
Donations can be made directly on the website: https://kittensnatchers.org/
Kitten Snatchers is a 501 (c) (3) registered organization, all donations made are tax deductible in accordance with statutory provisions.
