CENTRAL TEXAS FELINE RESCUE INC
August 6, 2010
I became involved with CTFR when I’d taken on a litter of 5 kittens. Elizabeth Brumbaugh, the founder of CTFR, sponsored all 5 kittens to be spayed/neutered AND set up an intake appointment for them at the Austin Humane Society, so that they could be placed through AHS’s adoption program. With a sick cat of our own, the financial relief and support that Elizabeth provided was a BIG help. From there I got to know Elizabeth, the group, and the work CTFR does. The volunteers are wonderfully caring people that are totally dedicated to reducing the number of unwanted cats, and improving the quality of life for feral cats. The volunteers feed the feral cat colonies every single day – rain or shine, 365 days a year! I started volunteering myself. I’ve helped with fundraising events, and I feed some of the colony cats (that I love!) on the weekends.
Besides giving their time, some CTFR volunteers choose to provide the food for the colonies they feed themselves, as CTFR operates solely on donations. When I’ve donated monies before to non-profit groups, I’ve checked out how much of the donation goes to “administrative costs” – I want to make sure my money really reaches the group I’m trying to help, and not the people that run it! Well, CTFR has 0% administrative cost. Every single penny that CTFR receives goes to the cats. Now that’s love ïŠ.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Helping kittens I've fostered/rescued, and the knowledge I've gained about the trap/neuter/release process. Plus, I've had the wonderful experience of seeing tons of success stories - cats that would have otherwise died become someone's much loved pet.
