I have never experienced an organization who cares so much for feral cats. Not only do they feed ferals the also provide medical care. They open their hearts and their homes to so many cats both friendly and those who are terrified. They also use their own money to transport feral cats to be fixed. Thus, ensuring that there are no more unwanted kittens. Their passion is an inspiration.
I can honestly say that with out a doubt. Barn Cat Buddies is my favorite non profit organization. They work very hard for the forgotten felines. The volunteers even take in cats that would otherwise be euthanized. These ladies work tirelessly trapping and caring for abandoned cats. Thank you BCB for caring.
In response to the catlovers12 comment and those that read it before it was removed, I would like to comment on the vehicle part of the statement. My husband and I were the ones that donated that vehicle and it was donated to BCB with the understanding that the current president, Sara Stein, would drive it solely since she is the one that does trapping, vetting and transporting on a regular basis (daily). The vehicle had over 150,000 miles on it and when it started to have mechanical problems, needed new tires, etc., Sara offered to purchase it from BCB....CONTINUE to use it for the purpose of benefiting BCB AND pay the expenses on it. Sara pays for repairs, insurance, taxes and gas. My husband and I were contacted and asked if that arrangement was good with us and of course, it was a win/win for us all. Please understand that as a fairly young 50lC, we have growing pains but we continue to strive to save lives and we have worked very hard to retain a good, solid reputation with local animal control and with the general public. Thank you for your continued support!!!!
Thank you for clarifying what we do. You and your husband are a special support for BCB, and the Board is so fortunate for having you on board.
When I was first introduced to the wonderful people working so hard for feral cats, I was basically a "dog person". My knowledge of trap/neuter/return was slim to none and the first thing that the volunteers did for me was education!!! After realized the plight of homeless and feral cats, I began my quest to help however I could. The energy and determination of the volunteers for Barn Cat Buddies just blew me away and even today, I feel what I do is a VERY small part compared to the other people I meet through this organization. Education, response and dedication is the key to this rescue group working and the many volunteers that spend endless hours and money helping. I am proud to be a member of Barn Cat Buddies.
And Toni has been a God-send to so many cats she has taken in to her barn. We thank you & your husband Andy for your generosity on so many levels.
