Pizza for Paws Fundraiser

Pizza for Paws Fundraiser

Join us for a great evening of delicious food, friends and support a great cause!

Thank you!! Fantastic night and so great to see past adopters, friends and family and supporters. Together we raised just over $1900 and had fun doing it. See you at the next dinner!

Many of you know about the recent cat hoarding situation that Ninth Life Cat Rescue was involved with and that we were able to rescue 18 cats, including 4 pregnant young females. It’s also a super busy kitten season!

Regarding the recent mass rescue, the condition of the cats is quite poor and many will need expensive vet care including dental, medications, vaccinations, and spay/neuter procedures. Their ailments include: tooth resorption, diarrhea, severe stomatitis (a dental/gum disease), cracked teeth requiring extraction, matting, dehydration, severe ear mites, our lovely Holly who is both pregnant and suffering from an eye condition yet to be determined, as well as Ivy our special girl who was born with congenital deformities affecting her mobility. Out vet bill estimate isn’t totaled yet, but it will be far more than adoption fees and donations to date will cover.

Did you also know how many pregnant cats and kitten litters are currently in the rescue? We have at least 18 litters of kittens and 4 pregnant mommas. But we probably have even more! During kitten season, some items our foster families use such as babycat and other wet kitten food, kitten milk replacer and litter are used in huge amounts. These foster homes sometimes wish they could register these babies for a baby shower! Let’s shower our foster homes with love and support while caring for this spring’s kittens.

Our vet bills are the most important cost for us to stay on top off, but many of our foster homes would also welcome many of these items below. During kitten season, some of these are even more important!  We thank you for any support.
