ASLANS CATS INC
October 2, 2011

Aslan's Cats is an outstanding organization completely dedicated to serving the needs of FeLV+ cats at their sanctuary. Cats who are FeLV positive (Feline Leukemia = the equivelent of AIDS to humans) have great difficulty finding homes anywhere and are often euthanized just because they are infected. FeLV cats cannot be housed with non-infected cats since the disease is very contagious among felines (it has no effect on humans). Aslan's Cats allows for these special, otherwise unwanted kitties to live out their days in happiness with the company of other infected cats. They receive medical attention and constant care in a "home" setting. The cats housed at Aslan's Cats are alive today only because of the love of those who run the organization. Their willingness and dedication to the very unique needs of these special cats is unparalleled anywhere throughout the country. The cats at their sanctuary would have died without them. All they needed was someone to love them and to give them the special attention they need to live out the rest of their lives. Aslan's gives FeLV positive cats a safe place to live with love, dignity, and fulfillment. Any gift to Aslan's Cats helps these special felines with all their special needs, and allows Aslan's Cats to accept new FeLV+ cats as they are able to do so.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Through contact with those who run the organization and care for the cats, I have learned of the dedication and love for the cats in their care. I am impressed at how they are so dedicated to a group of special-needs cats most people don't think about; cats who would otherwise be left to die.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Aslan's Cats should be more well-known. So much expertise, and filling such a unique niche in animal rescue and sanctuary should be something to be shared with the world. They should be recognized and awarded for the same.
