Dane County Friends of Ferals
It was a year ago this week that I wrote a post about the life and death of a local feral cat. This year I'd like to draw readers' attention to a local charity that cares for such animals, the Dane County Friends of Ferals.
The organization is an all-volunteer charitable group that relies on donations and receives no government funding. For seven years thay have provided resources for feral and abandoned stray cats and kittens, and have hosted annual Spayathons. "To date, more than 2,100 feral cats have been rescued, housed, spayed and neutered, vaccinated and adopted to caregivers."
Our family has supported this group each year with donations and at their fundraising auctions; the reason I'm mentioning them now is that there is currently a promotion going on, sponsored by The Animal Rescue Site. The public is invited to vote for local animal rescue groups; weekly winning groups will receive a grant of $1,000 and winners in each state will also receive $1,000.
If you would like to vote with a couple clicks of your mouse, go to this link -
- and type in Dane County Friends of Ferals and select the state (WI), or else enter (WI) and Madison in the location boxes and select from the menu. The "captcha" will ask you to identify an animal (zerba, monkey, etc) to confirm your humanity. Voting is permitted once per day.
Thank you for your clicks.
