Ever since I've posted a cat rescue phone number on Petfinder, I've been bombarded with phone calls from the public wanting to surrender their cats. I've been getting 3-4 calls per day! Most of the time, they just leave their name, "Hi, this is Mrs. Jones - please call me at yada yada yada..." I'm always hopeful it's somebody who wants to adopt from the shelter. It's so deflating to hear some lame excuse about dumping a cat.
I think what I'm going to do is start duplicating the efforts at the shelter and post some of the pictures on my Petfinder site. Maybe the additional exposure will help. I'll only post the cats that I know so that I can give a brief bio too. At least my Petfinder site won't be totally bare until January!
I decided to call the Charities Directorate yesterday to see if they received my application package. I could hear the clerk *click* *click* on the computer. "Sorry. It's not in the system yet." Bah! (Be patient Beth....be patient.)
There was another cat at the shelter that really spoke to my heart. Her name is "Dolly":
If you can help Dolly - please let me know right away. The euthanasia days are now Tuesday and Thursday, so Dolly may not have much time left.
Damn. I wish these things didn't hurt so much.
UPDATE: DOLLY IS BEING RESCUED TODAY!!! Whoopie!!!!!!!!
