My first time at the shelter was the night before Hurricane Irene .. besides being amazed at how clean everything was ( I spent an hour or more in the cat area -- I got to see all the cats and their environment up close) I was truly amazed by the dedication of the staff and volunteers. They worked round the clock (literally) to make sure all the animal were safely evacuated. I was so inspired I have kicked up my personal efforts to help animals, and have connected with many local rescue groups, all who have nothing but the highest regards for BATS! I foster cats for BATS.. and they came to me healthy and in very good spirits. The staff were amazing when I wanted to pull a momma cat and her new born kittens from the city shelter. They made arrangements for me to rescue the cat and her kittens and were completely supportive when the cats had to make multiple visits to the vet. They are a devoted group of people and should get all the support in the world!
