- Hey folks,
NOTR is beginning a 24 Hour Auction for Facebook. We’ll notify you in advance to what day the auction will be held. The highest bid by 11:59 EST on the evening of the auction wins. We’ll notify the winner and wait up to three days for payment. Then we’ll ship the item to you. If you’re not a fan of our Facebook page, please take the time to add us. We look forward to seeing what everyone is interested in.
The past few weeks have been mentally, physically, and emotionally draining here. The rescue has faced the rains that have damaged the property and taken out kennels. Weather aside, phone calls, e-mails, and messages poured in from the southern states. Each had a plea… “Can you save these cats and kittens?”. NOTR did what they could, but there were many who did not make it out of the shelters.
Folks… NOTR began 7 years ago as a DOG rescue. The rescue stumbled into an overcrowded cat room while rescuing dogs from a high kill shelter. The director’s heart sank. For those of you that have met Lee, you know she’s a genuine hard ass. The knowledge that over half of those cats would lose their lives on euthanasia day sparked that “Hell no!” and “Where’s the valium?” attitude you’ve grown to love… or hate. Thus creating the cat rescue portion at NOTR, which is supported by donations and dog adoptions. Many of the cats do not leave because they are feral, positive, not “fluffy” enough, or their person hasn’t shown up yet.
Here’s the point…
An offer has been made to match donations up to $5,000. NOTR could get a momentary reprieve, financially, to update the very “used” areas of the rescue.
- Rebuild damaged kennels
- Remove unstable trees
- Tile the floors to help sanitation
- Install a cat fence to protect the older ferals from predators
- Yes, that’s right… we have coyotes, foxes, and a ruthless opossum
- Build a sick/isolation room
- Help continue and spread our program for the elderly
- We provide food and meds for those who are having a hard time in our community
- Save more cats and dogs from being euthanized inhumanely
NOTR has 1,604 followers on Facebook. If each person donated $3-$4 we could reach our goal of $5,000. Just think what we could do if each of you shared the plea with two of your friends, and they donated $1. Our goal would be met, and we could save more lives. Please help NOTR raise $5,000 to be matched by a generous donator. The cats, kittens, and of course dogs would really appreciate it!
A generous donator has offerred to match donations up to $5,000 at the end of August.
