Please help the cats of Tiger Cat Sanctuary!

May 14, 2008

It has come to our attention, while browsing the tag surfer option of wordpress, that many cats have been abused and are in desperate need of medical assistance. 

A Furry Friend has written this post explaining the situation. 

If you are unable to make a donation, at least consider linking to AFF’s post on your own blog. The more attention this gets, the better the chances are for those unfortunate cats, who did nothing to deserve what came to them. No animal ever deserves abuse of any kind. 

Thanks.

EDITED TO ADD:

May 15th, 2008 the following new information regarding the above:

That supply list is old unfortunately. The media let out an old one by accident. The main things needs right now are quality food (wet) and litter (regular and yesterday’s news). Things like cat carriers are no longer needed. Please update your list. For those in the Pittsburgh area, a local organization has created a donation site there for those who wish to donate:

PITTSBURGH DROP OFF POINT NOW AVAILABLE
FOR SUPPLIES FOR THE TIGER RANCH CATS!

Many of you have asked how you can donate supplies for the Tiger Ranch cats. Well, now you don’t have to go any further than the East End of Pittsburgh… Our favorite construction materials supplier, Construction Junction, has graciously agreed to act as a drop-off / pick-up point for supplies for the Tiger Ranch cats currently being treated and cared for at the Clarion Shelter. The boxes will be checked daily and VFA volunteers will drive supplies up once or twice a week, according to needs.

If you would like to donate supplies for the cats in Clarion, you can take them to Construction Junction (address and opening hours below). The drop boxes are located to your right after you enter, behind and to the right of the large blackboard. Look out for a sign with a VFA logo by the boxes. If you are not familiar with Construction Junction, once you enter the parking lot, the main public entrance is about 2/3 down the lot to your left.

WISH LIST:
Quality dry cat food (Iams, Science Diet, Purina…), any size
Canned cat food, any size (no generics please!)
Cat litter (”Yesterday’s News” brand preferred – available at most Petsmart stores – but all brands welcome), any size

Dry food should be placed in the storage containers. Litter and canned food can be left by the boxes if the containers are fairly full. If anyone wants to donate and absolutely cannot get to Construction Junction, let us know by email or phone and we will try and arrange a home pick-up, where possible.

CONSTRUCTION JUNCTION
214 North Lexington Street
Pittsburgh 15208
(One block down from Penn Avenue, right up the street from East End Food Co-Op)

Monday through Friday: 8 am – 5 pm
Saturday 9 am – 5 pm
Sunday: 11 am – 4 pm

While you’re there, take advantage of this opportunity to drop off recyclable items that aren’t picked up on the curb side (office paper, junk mail, magazines, phone books, paperboard…), visit the FreeRide bicycle recycling workshop, or explore the fascinating aisles of Construction Junction itself…

Contact us if you have any questions. And feel free to let us know you’ve dropped off a donation. That will help us keep track of pick-up needs.

On behalf of the cats, thank you…

  3. I just started working with the cat rescue society here in Eureka. I have a kitten that almost died from distemper, he is a special needs cat and will probably never be adopted. Which is fine because he fits in perfectly with my household. I’ll be housing a kitten at a time during kitten season taking care of it until it is of age to be adopted. This is my way of contributing, there are too many cats and kittens living in bushes and alleys out there. Everyone who can should be donating to their local shelter who can’t adopt an abandoned animal. Its a horrible epidemic.
    I’ve used petfinder before when I was going to adopt a dog and its a great site, I highly suggest it. I went with cats, because my lease allows them (not as many as I’m going to have, but oh well) and I already have a small dog.

  4. astramillie: cool.

    If you haven’t done so already, linking to the information about the tiger cat sanctuary in your blog (link to the actual post, not my post about it) would be great….and urge your readers to do the same.

    It helps get the word out quickly……

    thanks

  5. By “Pittsbrugh Drop Off Point now available for supplies for the Tiger ranch cats”, are you meaning that now there is a drop off point available with tiger cat ranch supplies?


  6. It means that there is a place where someone can drop off donations for the cats. Like kitty litter, food, and other supplies
