RAA volunteers made a small town of cat condos today! We’ll be scattering these throughout the community to help protect cats from the winter wind, cold, and snow! Thank you to everyone who came out for the build and who donated supplies! If you want to see us build MORE cat houses, consider sponsoring a cat house or two on our website! bit.ly/supportRAA
Happy New Year from Rockbridge Animal Alliance! Thank you for sharing and supporting our programs dedicated to helping homeless and pet dogs and cats in Rockbridge County, Lexington and Buena Vista.
Thank you to the volunteers, donors, partnering organizations and responsible pet owners for making this possible.
Volunteers got together in November for our third cat house build. Using donated styrofoam coolers, we elevated the coolers with wood, put flooring in, made 2 entrance/exit holes and filled them with straw. We give out the houses at no charge to folks caring for community cats- also known as feral cats- after making sure they have contacted Cats Unlimited about getting the cat fixed through their low-cost cat spay/neuter program.
We had a full house on National Feral Cat Day for our educational event, co-hosted with Cats Unlimited, on the importance of Trap-Neuter-Return at Fashion Floors and Cabinets on Sunday. Thank you to speaker Alice Burton with Alley Cat Allies, along with donors Napa Thai, Cheese To You, Cool Spring Organic Market, Foothill Momma’s, CornerStone Bank, Fashion Floors owner Joanne Peretti and all of the volunteers that helped make this such a success.
Join us to learn what to do when you come across a stray/abandoned cat. We will have free food and lots of give-aways. Cats Unlimited is giving out 3 free spay/neuter vouchers.
Since the beginning of 2016, we have given out 16 bales of straw, 6 dog houses, and a feral cat house. While we wish every animal had a warm home to live in, we know this is not realistic. We believe in making outdoor animals as safe as comfortable as possible.
In 2015, Rockbridge Animal Alliance gave out close to 2 tons of pet food, 25 feral cat houses, 19 bales of straw, 11 dog
houses and 6 tarps to local animals in need. This was made possible through successful fundraising events with Bistro On Main, Tractor Supply, Herman’s Produce, Domino’s, Two Dogs Wholesome Dog Treats, at our very first garage sale and through generous donations and partnerships.
Here’s to even bigger things in 2016!
