TJ, a resident senior, has been diagnosed with feline squamous cell carcinoma--a cancer that affects the skin of cats, most often in and around the facial tissue. TJ's manifests in his right eye, on his nose, and along some of the edges of his ears. He has lost weight lately, but has good energy and astronomical affection levels.
Please keep TJ in your heart, and wish him lovely last weeks (months?) and a gentle passing.
C.R.O.W.'s mission is to improve the welfare of cats and their caregivers in the San Luis Valley, with a special focus on cats who are disabled, abused, senior, feral, or whose humans have become homeless.
The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. - Mahatma Gandhi
CROW= Colorado Rescue, Outreach, & Welfare
Colorado Yeah, that.
Rescue Cats in the care of C.R.O.W. live cage-free (except for medical reasons) in a network of foster homes in the San Luis Valley. We strive to rescue and rehome as many cats as possible, especially those with special needs, those whose humans have become homeless, and those facing euthanasia from city shelter overflow.
Outreach C.R.O.W. networks with other animal welfare organizations in the area to best meet the needs of the community. We share educational articles in the newspapers, keep an active blog, offer free educational workshops and classes, and interact with the community at large on a regular basis.
Welfare Our rescue and outreach programs directly impact the welfare of cats in the San Luis Valley. We are in the early stages of building a Feral Cat Welfare Program to improve public acceptance of feral cats, to provide winter shelters for colonies around the valley, to trap-neuter-release (TNR) as many feral cats as possible, and to help the caregivers of feral colonies in any way we can.
CROW Cat Rescue is a 501(c)3 Nonprofit. Your donations are tax deductable. Thanks!
