*You think the list is big?? PLEASE READ!! –Friends, you need to apply to rescues NOW to be approved to foster or adopt so when there’s a cat you want, it can be pulled and u have a contact to reach. Too many rescues have been burned by foster dumps to be comfortable pulling for people they don’t know. This eliminates the last minute scramble-PLEASE take the time to apply NOW before kitten season.-AM
- Every night under the album we state: “*New? Get approved by an APO TODAY to foster/adopt later on. That way, no mad dash! You are already approved. The earlier you plan, the better.” EVERY NIGHT. When the kitten season hits, the lists will be HUGE-as in 40-50. There is NO WAY the rescues or us admins can help process that many requests in the short window that we have. SO PLEASE PLEASE-take a few minutes to submit an online application to a rescue. There are 250 on the APO list. We can suggest some to apply to (in fact, I do, nightly). But if you want to save and really help these animals, please do this and tell whoever is local to NYC to do the same. Rescues will help you-you just need to be approved. Then, you can just email/pick up the phone and not spend all night trying to get one. PLEASE DO THIS. It is effective and it works-AM
Even better, if people apply to foster, they can take already vetted cats from rescues so that space opens up for e-list animals.
- **********To the people in the area who aren’t fostering. It’s really easy to find reasons why we can’t foster. I work too much, I have to take care of the kids, I don’t have enough room. We have all used those excuses at some point in our lives, right. Tonight let’s find an excuse to foster. Cats are independent so I don’t have to be home to take them for a walk. Fostering will help teach my children about compassion and instill in them a love of animals. I will be teaching them about the value of life. And cats don’t need a lot of room. They don’t care that you live in a studio or a one bedroom. They only need a litterbox, food and water and a little love. And if cost is an issue, many rescues will provide you with supplies and pay for vetting. So, no more excuses. Save one of these lives tonight. It will make you feel wonderful.******** (CREDIT TO KATHLEEN JACK)
