I had an email from a friend of mine in the Akron area who is trying to save the lives of six Siamese cats that are currently in a high kill shelter in Georgetown, KY. Judi has a friend who works with this shelter and they routinely work together to get cats out to safety.
Here is what Judi said: “Yesterday my friend, Dana, who works at a high kill shelter in Georgetown, KY sent me these pictures of six Siamese cats who are all in need of homes. It seems that the cats belonged to a husband and wife. Recently, the husband passed away and the wife is unable to live alone. Her son and daughter-in-law have moved in with her. However, the daughter-in-law is allergic to cats. So (as happens all the time), the cats had to go. They have been surrendered to the high kill shelter in my area. Sadly, if they do not find a home, they will be put to sleep.”
“This breaks my heart as they all appear to be very healthy.”
“As I learn more about the cats, I will pass that information along to anyone who is interested. I do know that several (if not all) are spayed and neutered. Their ages are between one to six. I will find out about their vaccine history.”
“The cost for the cats COULD BE NOTHING, because the shelter does not charge me to get the cats out. The only cost is their vetting bill, which like I said, if they are fixed and have had shots, there would be no fees at all. The shelter and I would not charge for transporting the cats. So you could have a Siamese cat for the cost of loving them the rest of their lives.”
If you are interested in any of these cats or have questions, please contact Judi at firstname.lastname@example.org
I have worked with Judi before and she will do all she can to save a cat in need. As she mentioned, Judi and the shelter would also help to transport the cats to get them to safety.
