Help save the lives of local homeless cats and kittens by supporting Community Concern for Cats’ 8th Annual Giving Tree Fundraiser now through Dec. 31st.
All funds received will be used to provide spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations, and other healthcare to restore sick and injured cats to good health at their Clayton Hospital. Broken bones and damaged eyes are very common problems. Funds are also used to prepare CC4C’s kittens and friendly cats for their adoption into new forever homes.
To help community cats, visit CC4C’s upscale thrift shop, Rescued Treasures at 1270-I Newell Avenue in the San Miguel Shopping Center, in Walnut Creek. Purchase an ornament, choosing from various donation amounts, and it will be hung on the Christmas tree in their shop window, filling it with signs of love and compassion for forgotten cats and kittens. Hours: Mon-Sat: 10 AM to 5 PM, Sun 12 Noon-4 PM.
If you care about these needy cats, but cannot stop by, you may donate through CC4C’s web site— www.
communityconcernforcats.com or mail to their P.O. Box 3795, Walnut Creek, 94598.
“But, that’s not as much fun as going by the store to see its wonderful displays of Christmas and fall items,” Gemma Boyd, president said.
Community Concern for Cats’ members do everything they can to help broken and starving cats, and little kittens without mothers. They feed many cat colonies throughout the area. They also feed litters of kittens specially enriched kitten formula to make sure they get a good start at life. They watch over them in their homes, and weigh them every day to see that they are growing properly.
“Last year we adopted out 916 cats; this year so far 648. It has been an unusually difficult kitten season starting in March and it is not over yet. More donations would be welcome,” Boyd said. “Giving Tree donations are a great way to help the cats. Please make it one of your holiday family traditions. If you do—there will be a whole lot of cats and kittens feeling better—and thankful for your help,” continued Boyd.
