For the second year in a row, the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter is holding a fundraiser that will save the lives of hundreds of cats.
The shelter’s Kit10 donation campaign gives participants the opportunity to name adoptable cats in the WCRAS system. To name a cat, entrants must donate at least $ 10 or more.
According to the shelter, residents can donate and name as many cats as they want. The fundraiser runs until July 2nd.
“Now is the perfect time to let your creativity run wild while helping a good cause,” said April Peiffer, director of WCRAS community programs, in a June 28 press release. “The names you have given will be included in the kitten name register with your donation. Participants can then go to wilcopets.org to see an adoptable kitten with the name of their choice. “
All donations raised through this event will be used for the needs of cats and kittens in the shelter, according to WCRAS. In addition to monetary donations, the shelter also accepts donations of items to help the WCRAS most vulnerable cats.
In its press release, WCRAS announced that it had taken in more than 600 cats and kittens in May and June of this year alone.
WCRAS waives adoption fees until July 2 for residents who adopt two or more cats to bring home.
