Global Cat Day is Today

BETHESDA, Md., USA – Oct. 16, 2018 – Alley Cat Allies will commemorate Global Cat Day on Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2018, with a celebration of the movement of people who protect cats by advocating for humane local policies, adopting or fostering, and carrying out non-lethal cat management including Trap-Neuter-Return.

The president and founder of Alley Cat Allies, Becky Robinson, praised the advancements made so far by advocates who are working to change our society so that all cats are protected.

“Trap-Neuter-Return is the mainstream, humane approach for outdoor cats in this country. But misinformation is still killing untold numbers of cats each year. Too many animal shelters, places that should be safe havens, are still using lethal and outdated practices that harm and kill cats,” Robinson said. “That’s why it’s critical that humane non-lethal cat management becomes a reality across the board. Global Cat Day provides an opportunity to thank all the advocates who are setting the record straight about cats and protecting them.”

Global Cat Day celebrates the hard-fought progress Alley Cat Allies and unsung heroes of cats around the world have made in bringing about new laws and programs protecting and improving cats’ lives. It gives a glimpse on how people are loving, valuing, and protecting cats, and in turn, changing their communities for the better.

Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is sound public policy. It reduces shelter intake, “euthanasia,” and calls to animal services, which saves taxpayer money in the process. Thousands of cities and towns conduct TNR and the number continues to grow as more communities learn about its success.

Volunteers – – – they’re priceless

Volunteers – – – they’re priceless

VolunteerA key ingredient for a non-profit is a volunteer.  They are truly priceless.  And sometimes you hit the mother-lode….we did.

The Richardson-Rexwinkle division of PAAS provides unparalleled care for momma dogs “fixin” to have a litter – and for new mommas who need a place to take care of their babies.

It started in 2015 with Miss Ruby…she came from the Vinita pound….we weren’t even open yet.  Vicki & Tom said “no problem” we’ll take her home.  And – – the rest is history.

I cannot tell you how many momma dogs and puppies got the best start in life because of Tom, Vicki, Candy and Sarah.  In fact, Pete just joined the group as a foster Dad.  Vicki and Candy are good recruiters as well.

They willingly turn one or more rooms of their homes into “birthing” centers.  They’ve had two or more mommas at one time and 20++++ puppies.  That’s lots of newspaper – – lots of cleaning – – and oh so much cuteness.  They also know that even though it’s tough to say goodbye to the bundles of joy – – – there’s always another mother (or two) waiting in line.

Yes, we guard our volunteer birthing centers.  No…they can’t take every pregnant momma dog in the area.  Could we use more birthing homes – – of course.  You can never, ever, have too many foster homes for homeless pets in this area.

If you’ve wondered how you can make a difference…..and love puppies and kittens….give us a call.  There are a few requirements.  The most important will be an interview with Vicki and Candy.  Give it some thought….call if you’re interested.  If you don’t live near us….find a rescue in your area that needs volunteers.  We’re all in this together.  And……Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!  Tom, Vicki, Candy, Sarah and Pete!!!!!!!!!!!!

Like all rescues we are a 501©3 organization.  Find us on Facebook:  PAASVinita and our website:  www.paasvinitaw.com     For the animals…..Kay and Staff of PAAS..
