Our shelter transfers many, many cats each year to rescues and shelters who, unlike ours, doesn’t receive many felines yet have many adopters waiting for a furry friend to call their own. Being able to transport our overflow of cats to them is a true life saver and couldn’t be possible without a few components. One is our amazing drivers who regularly transport animals hours away from Chatham-Kent, the other is cat carriers!
Cat carriers are not donated often, yet are one of our most needed item. Some transfers are done in such a way that carriers come back with our driver, but others involve a series of drivers and carriers stay with the receiving shelter/rescue. We find ourselves scrambling to buy as many carriers as we can yet never seem to have enough to fill the demand.
Please consider donating your unused carrier(s) or donate towards the purchase of new ones.
