As Cinderella Pet Rescue has grown, so has our need for comfortable, weather-proof facilities for our feline friends who are waiting here, hoping to find their forever homes.
We currently have two cat rooms. The first is a 16' X 30" free-standing building with 12' X 24' being the actual cat room. It is partially open to the elements. The second room, located a long walk from the first, is housed in a section of a metal barn. Although neither room has heat nor air conditioning, the room in the barn gets extremely hot in the summer because there is no shade near the barn and little air circulation, even with the fans. Our proposed new site will be located under the trees which will make a significant difference in temperature during the long hot summer months.
2013 CALENDAR / Information Booklet
These calendars have photos of CPR pets as well as lots of pet care information to make them useful handbooks even though 2013 is over.
The calendars are available $.50 each
The long distance between rooms is also less than ideal for introducing potential adopters to their “forever cat” and is impossible for many handicapped individuals to navigate the dirt trail. Additionally traversing between the two buildings takes up valuable volunteer time that could be better spent interacting with the cats.
We are asking for your help in raising $8000.00 to build a new cat room, adjacent to the first. Our founder has agreed to pay for the labor to construct the new building so the funds needed are strictly for the materials. Eventually we will be seeking funding to make the rooms better weatherized with the addition of air conditioning and heat to both buildings. But constructing the new cat castle next to the other one is our immediate priority and will make the logistics of both maintenance and adoption much simpler.
Please contribute whatever you can; even a $5.00 donation will help us reach our goal of providing more comfortable surroundings for the wonderful cats entrusted to our care. Make a donation through the PayPal donation button or mail a check. If you have some extra construction materials we could use that would be great, too.
ADOPTATHON at PetSmart
For this adoptathon sponsored by PetSmart we will have dogs and cats being shown at various times over the weekend.
Although all the PetSmarts will be participating in the Adoptathon, Cinderella Pet Rescue will be at the N. 10th St. PetSmart in McAllen.
