B4TC…I Will Be The Change…
HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!
I am joining what I hope will be thousands of bloggers who will post today about how each of us can Be The Change For Animals.
My Mom and I want to introduce a rescue organization we are starting to volunteer with–Community Concern For Cats (CC4C).
Because of all the recent ‘demonic’ media representation about how feral cats, and actually cats in general, should be considered a threat to both the world bird population and even human health, we believe we MUST become involved more directly in making sure feral cats have a voice and a chance to live their lives. The cats do not ask to be ‘feral’…but humans have created their existence and in many ways, their plight…
Then there have been dozens of newspaper articles taking off on the even more misinformed media hype about “cats as cold blooded killers”…to quote Mr Dan Harris as he presented this “research” for ABC Evening News with Diane Sawyer. To read about this “research” released by the Smithsonian, click HERE.
Finally, there is the New Zealand businessman who has been promoting killing not only feral cats, but all cats–click HERE to read about this perspective.
So, I want to encourage everyone to help wherever and however they can to help their communities treat the feral cat populations with “humane” intentions…meaning with “kindness, mercy and compassion”…which are assumed traits of “humanity”.
Now, back to Community Concern For Cats (CC4C) in Contra Costa County, California. They are committed to not only feral cat population management and care, but also to helping as many strays as possible find their next truly furrever home. They can be found on Face Book by clicking HERE.
Like so many small private non-profit rescues around the world, CC4C is made up of dedicated volunteers, there is no paid staff…here is what they say about their history..
“Community Concern for Cats (CC4C) is a non-profit 501c3 rescue organization celebrating over 25 years of service to Contra Costa County. We are an all-volunteer organization comprised of members, fosters, and volunteers who work hard to make a positive difference in the lives of the cats we meet, and in helping our communities. We are supported by individual donations, grant writing, and fundraising.
We do not have a shelter or facility of our own, so nearly 100 percent of our adoption fees and donations go towards spay and neuter and the medical treatment of our rescued kitties. Through Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR), rescue and rehabilitation, we are able to reduce the cat overpopulation and provide needed loving homes for cats that otherwise would be homeless.
The President, Miss Gemma, wrote about how she became involved in CC4C and you can read her story HERE. Miss Gemma and all the volunteers at CC4C ARE THE CHANGE FOR CATS. I am proud my Mom gets to help them sometimes…
…ahhh…well…I don’t like how she smells when she has been helping them…cuz she helps a friend of hers who fosters bottle kittens…this is my Mom feeding feral rescued bottle kittens..
…yeah, I know…they are “SO CUTE”…but seriously…did you see those claws???
I hope I can Be The Change For Animals every day of my life.
Paw Pats, Savannah and Mom Linda
