CRISIS SITUATION AT THE SHELTER
We just took in 52 cats from one home.
Nearly all of them are sick - many of them are severely ill. Here are images; some are disturbing.
Please, if you can donate to help care for these poor dears, click on the Donate Now button above.
Compassion towards kitties is a wonderful thing, but please, if you feed them, fix them. Spaying and neutering is much less costly and much, much kinder in the long run.
Please send good thoughts and prayers for these little ones.
The question is not 'Can they reason?' nor 'Can they talk?' but rather 'Can they suffer?'
- Jeremy Bentham
