Furry Friends celebrates successful fundraiser

The Columbian

WALNUT GROVE — Furry Friends raised $20,560 during its annual spring auction. The Endless PAWsibilities online auction fundraiser was held March 25-27. Funds raised will go to the care of the many kittens that Furry Friends rescues.

“We are so grateful for the generosity of our friends and donors,” said Diane Stevens, Furry Friends’ marketing director. “We currently have 57 kittens in our care, each one costing us $300 to $500 for their routine medical, care and food.

“Furry Friends is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit no-kill cat rescue serving Clark County and adjacent counties. Founded in 1999, we are a volunteer-run organization that rescues and adopts out homeless, relinquished, and abused cats. We shelter and care for them as long as it takes to find them forever homes. We provide medical exams, medications, spay/neuter, food, and litter for up to 400 cats each year.”

It is expensive rescuing cats. Furry Friends takes care of the medical, spay/neuter, food and housing for the cats and kittens in their care. Many cats need medical attention beyond the routine, which can be quite expensive. Furry Friends’ standard adoption fees are $100 for an adult cat and $150 for a kitten.
