August 21 – ST. PAULS – Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary recently announced a $ 2,000 grant from the newly named Petco Love to support the organization’s lifesaving work for stray and feral cats in North Carolina.
“Today Petco Love is investing in Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary and hundreds of other organizations across the country working to improve animal health and welfare as part of our commitment to creating a future where no pet is unnecessarily euthanized,” Susanne Kogut, President of Petco Liebe, said Tuesday. “Our local investments are only one component. This year we also launched the first of our national tools, Petco Love Lost, which enables all animal lovers to work with us to drive life-saving change.”
Petco Love is a non-profit organization originally founded in 1999 as the Petco Foundation. Since then, the nonprofit has invested $ 300 million in adoption and other life-saving efforts, and has found homes for more than 6.5 million pets in partnership with Petco and more than 4,000 organizations across the country.
Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary is a non-profit organization that provides permanent homes for cats that most animal shelters and animal control institutions consider not adopted and therefore euthanized. This includes blind cats and those that have tested positive for FIV or feline leukemia.
“Our neutering and neutering program has several benefits for the cats themselves and the community,” said Alana Miller, President and CEO of BCR. “Female cats can have up to three litters of kittens each year, leading to an overpopulation of unwanted kittens that end up euthanized in animal shelters, killed on the street, or even mother cats. Our program is working to resolve this situation. “
