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!!!!

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.
