Street Cat Rescue - "Helping the Forgotten". STCR answers hundreds of calls each year from the Public, 311 calls, and other organizations. We have TNR'd (Trap/Neuter/Returned) over 600 cats, adopted out over 100 cats, and prevented thousands of kittens from being born. And because we cannot take on every request for help, our efforts in educating/teaching the public on trapping and the TNR process, subsequently, thousands more were spayed/neutered or helped. In addition, we have helped over 50 cats that were sick or injured and have held numerous workshops from TNR and trapping classes to building winter shelters for cats. We also have helped many people find their lost cats, educated people on how to keep their pets due to behavioral issues or assisted with temporary housing, food, litter, etc. for those in need. It is our goal to help even more cats or people in need.
Street Cat Rescue is needing to raise $20,000.00 in which 90% will go towards the Dolly "P" Medical fund for emergencies and other medical needs. This will enable us to help more of the many sick and injured cats that have no one to care for them. The remaining funds will ll be for general related expenses. We also now take care of four Leukemia + cats at The Lodge at Street Cat Rescue so will need medical funds for them as well. We always welcome donations for food and litter, as we feed several feral cat colonies daily, as well as the cats at the Cat Habitat, and use quite a bit of litter, annually. We spend $9,600 annually on food and $3,500 annually on litter. And a great need is Volunteers! There are many opportunities to help Street Cat Rescue, from trapping, to cleaning, reading to the cats, adoption events, Fundraising and more! Two hours a month to many hours a week..it's up to you, but we need "YOU"!
Georganne Duron: "When we found two small kittens living in the drainage area of a busy restaurant parking lot, I reached out to Donna Powell of Street Cat Rescue.Donna dropped everything and took several mornings and evenings out of her already over loaded schedule to come out and help trap these little ones. Then she took them home with her to feed and care for them.She is one of the most dedicated and sincere professionals in the cat rescue community in the Austin area nd her organization has a truly stellar reputation."
Keli Banet: " Thank you SO much for sending someone out to trap the little black and white kitten across from the Austonian building, AND for letting me know that you got her. I sent you a donation via Paypal this morning, to help with her care, and the care of your other cats."
Suzanne Kennedy: "God bless you Donna Dayhoff Powell again and again and again!!" (after rescuing a blind young at from a junkyard)
Willie and Friendsby Pat Byrd
They call me "Willie...the Cry...baby"...as I used to hold my head back and cry when founder Donna Powell would take me to adoptions. I would grab a hold of the carrier door and shake it and swing my head back for more dramatics . She ended up making me her own, (so it worked!) , but I have lots of friends at the Cat Ranch that need your help! Help US Help the Forgotten!
