HH had a great talk with Sibyl from the Humane Society of South Brevard the other day. HH was asking her how Bugsy, Knuckles and I could help them spread the word about some of the things that they do and some of their needs. She gave her many suggestions. I decided that I'll post information about some of them on Tuesdays.
So, one of the programs going on over there is the Sponsor program. There are many cats who are difficult to find homes for. They are a no-kill shelter and they sure could use help in taking care of those kitties who may never be chosen for a home. So they started a sponsor program where for a $5.00 per month commitment, people can become a sponsor of one of there long term residents.
I think it's a neat idea.... Here's what happens in the words of Robert, the Spokescat for the Sponsor program...
Robert, the Spokescat for Sponsor Cats
Would you like to share in the life of a wonderful cat but can't have one of your own? Well, we are a terrific gang of cats here known as the Sponsor Cats. I am Robert and I am the spokescat for the group.
Unfortunately, we know we are not likely to be adopted because some of us have long term health issues, difficult personalities (some say that's me), or disabilities. Also, some cats here are absolutely purrfect, but just keep getting passed over.
We would love to have a special friend, and for only $5 a month or $60 a year, you can help to take care of one of us. Your donation goes toward our food (we eat the good stuff), yearly exams, vaccinations (yuck), and any medical treatments.
If you choose to sponsor one of us, I will send you a picture, a biography, and if you come by to visit I'll teach you our secret Sponsor Cats handshake!
Feel free to come visit us any afternoon at the shelter.
And, I wanted to tell you all to come by my blog on Halloween. As part of our celebration, we're having a commentathon. HH is going to give 50 cents for every comment on the blog during that day. Bugsy, Knuckles and I get to use the money to sponsor one of the kitties over there.
If you want to know more about the programs at the Humane Society of South Brevard, take a look at their website... You'll find their address, phone number and email address over there too, if'n you have any questions. And here's the link for the page about the Sponsor Program if you're interested in knowing more about that.
That's it for today, pals.... Happy Tuna Tuesday, everybuddy...
And, remember.... Max Loves Ya!!!
