We desperately need your help to keep the shelter open. We are living on a month to month basis now. We have cut staff hours by 20% and have volunteers training to assist them with daily cleaning. We have reduced the shelter population to 80 cats and kittens through adoptions, and closed Catmandu, one of our three large adoption rooms. This reduces the square footage needing to be cleaned and makes it possible to clean the shelter each day with fewer paid staff members. These are tough and painful choices, but ones we must put in place now to keep our doors open for the cats in our care. They are depending on all of us to keep them safe.
Newly rescued cats and kittens are arriving at Harmony House daily, and the bills for veterinary care and supplies are mounting rapidly. Meowy Cassatt, still almost a kitten herself, was in active labor when she arrived at the shelter’s door, and soon gave birth to four kittens. All five of them will need comprehensive exams, tests, worming, vaccinations, microchips and spay/neuter surgery prior to becoming eligible for adoption. Summer is a busy time for rescues, but it is also the time of year that contributions dip the lowest. Any gift you can make right now would be appreciated.
We have pledged lifetime care to every cat who comes through our doors, and with your help we can still be true to that promise. We may not be able to rescue as many cats as in previous years, but with your love and support, we can keep the shelter open, and care for the cats of Harmony House. Please click here to donate today.
