I have visited BCR for the past three years and each visit has been memorable. The cats all get the best of care for what time they have. Blind Fiv+ and FeLv cats living the life they deserve. Cannot say enough about the Director Alana and her staff for all their hard work. Have also met so many wonderful caring people through BCR. Amongst the Friends of BCR it is commonly known as "The Happiest Place on Earth". I volunteer each time I come and enjoy all my time spent here. The cats are given a promise : This will be their Forever Home. There is a lovely Memorial Garden for the kitties who have past. I highly recommend BCR to everyone who loves cats. I don't really like to play favourites but Mickey stole my heart the first day I arrived. He is such a sweet boy. Would not leave me alone.
I love Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary. I love how Alana Miller explains of each kitty stories and where they came from. I have 4 sweet kitties that i truly love and adore. their names are princess popcorn who is a tripod and have captured my heart, Cassie a tuxedo who reminds me of my kitty Charlie that i lost in march 2nd 2012 due to a tornado, Meredith who is so playful and April who is so sweet have captured my heart to. I do not know why april and meredith have been separated from each other. they both loved to play and snuggle with each other and best friends. But i am sure Alana has reason why.
Where can I start? I have been following BCR since 2005 and I can honestly say that my experience has only gotten better and better. The longer you watch and interact during live tours, the more you fall in love with the cats that live there. I'm always blown away by how amazing and dedicated the staff are to the cats and how they always put them first. Everything they do revolves around the cats in their care. I especially love the live tours that they do twice a day and even give us a live tour on a Sunday (that's dedication!). They are completely committed to the sponsors, the fans, anyone who wants to know more about BCR and what they do and making people feel as comfortable as possible. There is always someone willing to lend a hand. The cats have everything they need, they have the best vet and medical care because lots of cats that live there have feline leukemia and/or FIV but even the blind cats that may not have these conditions or get sick are treated exactly the same. There is no favouritism and every cat is treated equally and gets the best level of care. The other thing that I particularly like is that the cats are there for life even after they pass away. There is a lovely memorial garden that is tended to and the cats are buried there with a rose bush and sponsors or fans often send stones to keep their memories alive. Sponsoring is a great way to help too and makes you feel very close to the cats that you can't adopt with BCR being a forever home. I'm a sponsor and it's the most amazing experience I have ever had. You feel like the cats you sponsor are your own cats. The last thing I would like to say (I could go on and on) is that Alana is a dedicated, trusting, transparent and compassionate person and dedicates her life to giving the cats the best care. She is the glue that holds everything together and I'm honoured to know her. I'm very proud to support and follow BCR and encourage anyone that loves cats or wants to find out more about cats that are blind, have FeLV and/or FIV to check out BCR and see what they do. You won't regret it!
This is an incredible charity and I'm honoured to be a part of it. What these wonderful people do for the cats in their care is amazing and I really love the tours as they really give us an insight into how the cats live and we can get to know them one by one. I am so glad I came across Blind Cat Rescue and I will cherish them forever. They are truly amazing and they are angels to me.
I have been a supporter of BCR and Sanctuary for a year. Seeing all the amazing caring and loving, they have for the cats. If BCR and Sanctuary didn't exist, all thoses loving kitties wouldn't be here today. Am honored to support BCR and Sanctuary
My 14 year old cat is going blind, and due to being a 100% disabled veteran I can no longer take care of her properly. I've had her since she was 6 weeks old, and I love her so much I can't put her down. My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org. I have lost 80% of my hearing and cannot use a phone. Plus, I my have the sickness that makes a person lose their memory. I live at 8603 # 7, Lemon Avenue La Mesa Ca 91941 I don't know what else to do, as I'm 80 years old.
I have been going to BCR for almost 6 years now, a furever home for Blind FIV+ and FeLv cats that are living the life they deserve. I started with volunteering and let me tell you from experience the staff works very hard to give the cats clean rooms, clean litter boxes, lots of food, treats and especially LOVE. I am totally in love with all the beautiful/handsome cats/kittens. The director of BCR, Alana Miller had dedicated her life to saving these sweet loveable kitty's and does an amazing job. I am a big black cat lover and there are quite a few at BCR that have become my Black Cat Gang. The 2nd picture is me and my sponsor cat Stitch (FELV), BTW I am a Stitch fanatic (lol) and the 1st is a sweet girl Lisa (blind) who is giving me lovins. Before COVID hit I went to every Open House, I am bless to live in Wilmington, NC. BCR is my happy place where you can feel the love that the cats have to share with you. I can't say enough great things about BCR and tell everyone I meet. If ever you are in the St. Pauls, NC area BCR is a not to miss visit, you will not want to leave.
When I moved from NJ to NC a year ago I found out about Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary and have been a HUGE fan ever since. I am so proud to be a part of BCR family as a volunteer and being able to go there for their open houses and during the week to help out. Alana Miller is an amazing person along with her staff. I have met the most caring loving people and cats assoicated with BCR, If you are an animal lover this is a must see on your bucket list, the dedication to the furbabies is by far the best around! I love BCR so much that I am involved with a fundraiser getting tattooed with the Blind Cat Resuce & Sanctuary, why you ask, because they have my heart. The furbabies are such a bunch of lovebugs......so please if in St. Pauls, NC area stop by and say hello you will not regret it I could go on and on about how wonderful BCR is but you must go yourself, it's my HAPPY PLACE and it can be yours too!!!!!!
The work that BCR does is just amazing.
More than giving at risk cats a home, but care and dedication beyond anything I have ever seen
Several of the cats come from homes or shelters where the cat was scared of humans and other cats. The staff at Blind Cat Rescue work slowly and with passion to make the cat comfortable and feeling safe. This may take weeks or months, and in the end, the cats know they are loved and safe
Blind cat rescue has also influenced people to adopt a cat or dog who is at high risk because they are blind, or deaf or have a medical issue. We personally know of 2 people who were impacted by Blind Cat Rescue and thus one adopted a blind cat and the other a blind dog.
I discovered this place by chance when I signed up for amazon smile. Looking for a local charity I found them and read their story and chose them for amazon smile. I am amazed this is a home for all the cats and they will live their life here in peace. They are so well taken care of. I now donate to their well being and would love to visit and see these cats up close and cuddle and play with them. Blind, FIV and FELV cats have a home for life here......
Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary is known by its supporters as "the Happiest Place on Earth". Established in 2005 the Director Alana Miller made a promise that the cats in her care would get the best lives possible and would be in their forever home. A promise she continues to keep. Blind cats at first and then Fiv + & FeLv + cats who are deemed unadoptable. Some of the resident cats have been there for many years living the good life. I first visited in 2016 and returned each year until Covid 19 arrived. Normally each month they hold an Open House each month where members of the public can visit and see how well these little bundles of joy are living out their lives. After a cat passes away they are interred in the Memorial Garden. Sadly with FeLv + cats they don't always get the life span they deserve. The staff are the absolute best and the rooms are cleaned each and every day. Live tours each day and "chats & boxes" shows the gifts that supporters send. Once this pandemic is over I recommend to anyone who can to visit and see firsthand this remarkable place. Photos are Precious who regained his sight Chester Willow & Uncle Fester.
I have visited all the way from Australia for 4 years in a row now. It is known as "the Happiest Place on Earth" among us supporters. The cats are living in their furever home which includes a memorial garden that includes Memorial Stones donated by sponsors. The staff are devoted and work very hard to give the residents the best life possible. Each room is cleaned daily and you really could eat off the floor. I would highly recommend people to put this on their bucket list. There is a 'work for stay' guesthouse available. Work is hard but very rewarding. I met some of the most amazing cats and people through BCR and I am proud to call them family. 2020 is their 15th Anniversary and the Director Alana Miller has done a wonderful job and we love her for it. They are open for the public Monday to Saturday from noon to 4 pm. (not during the pandemic though) You can catch live tours at noon and 3 pm Eastern time.
I love this place. I haven't had the privilege of visiting but it's on my bucket list. I donate $5 a month and it's worth every penny. I'd donate more if I could. This is the only place I'll send $ to and trust. The work they do for these helpless wonderful babies Is truly incredible and they deserve every $$ they can get. If I lived closer I'd volunteer there. I know God has blessed these wonderful people and I know they work to keep these unwanted babies alive and strive to give them a good life. They deserve every help they can get. These people are so wonderful and I know they all have such warm hearts. I'll keep donating to help as long as I can.
I love this organization because they take all the cats that are adoptable and give them a chance at living a normal life like regular cats. This place takes all kinds of special needs cats and I think it's so wonderful. I don't donate or send stuff to just any place but I truly do believe in this place and will do what I can to help support them because i know they run on donations and do this out of the kindness of their hearts and for that they deserve every help they can get. These cats won't survive if it wasn't for BCR and for that I thank God for them and I say god bless to the people to help take care of these wonderful creatures. I hope to visit them one day in the future. If I lived closer to them I'd love to volunteer but I'm happy to do what I can to help them take care of these special needs babies that otherwise won't survive if it wasn't for this wonderful place.
I have been affiliated with BCR for over 8 years. Their care for these "unadoptable" cats is phenomenal. They have provided many years of love, full bellies and soft beds to lay in. Many of the cats came from horrific situations and BCR brought hope and love into the cats lives. Their medical care lacks for nothing. If the cat needs it - the cat gets it. I am proud to be a part of BCR.
I have been a volunteer and supporter for over 6 years. I have personally visited so I can attest to the quality of care that is provided for the blind, FIV+ and FeLV+ cats. No expense is spared in their veterinary care and the quality of life that is provided to over 100 cats. Some cats are there a short amount of time and others spend years there. Each cat knows nothing but love, soft beds and full bellies.
We've been associated with BCR for more than 10 years - when we adopted our own blind cat. We've never stopped being impressed with the level of dedication shown to the cats by all the staff, the high standards of care each cat gets, and the super transparency of how donations are used. BCR has been taking care of blind, FIV- and leukemia-positive cats for 16 years and donors can see their generosity in action any time on BCR's 24-hour live streaming cameras. Thanks to BCR, people around the world are learning every day that these cats can be loving family pets and deserve to live!
I love the BCR, my Daughter in law Jessica works there and I was able to come for a visit this past December, all the staff are very polite and caring, all the cats are so loving, I enjoyed loving on them and watching them play, I love how the rooms are set up inside and outside its like a daycare center but for cats. A big thanks to all the staff for their dedication.
I learned about BCR through Jackson Galaxy in the early days of the pandemic and lockdown in Toronto, Canada. Tuning in whenever I can to their livestreams (at noon and 3pm Eastern time) has really helped me. Seeing the cats on a bad day really cheers me up! BCR also has the zmodo camera app set up so you can check in on the kitties 24/7. Alana and the tour guides clearly know and love the cats very much and they're incredibly appreciative of all their supporters. They have wishlists set up with stores like Amazon and Walmart so you can send them supplies they need, and Alana regularly opens the boxes on livestreams with the kitties jumping around and it's a lot of fun. BCR supporters are also an amazing community of people who love and care about the cats.
This is not only a sanctuary, it is a great place to get information on cats health needs. I have visited BCR&S a couple of times during the monthy visits. It was a wonderful experience with all the kitties and volunteers.
I had a neighborhood cat with a bad eye infection, so I call BCR&S. Guess who answered, yes Alana, the founder. She listened and told us exactly what to do to help this poor big boy. He had to have an operation for his eyelashes growing inward instead of outward. He was so happy to be able to see for a short time. He passed, not to this, but to old age, a couple of months after his eyes were fixed.
But thanks to BCR&S was there when we needed it. Bighead would thank y'all too.
BCR is the most compassionate with pets that are deemed not savable. Blind, FELV, FIV, or other disabilities are given a second chance by Alana and her crew. I always try to donate to them when I can. These cats are very special and people love to visit them.
I found blind cat rescue NC a Google search many many years ago and immediately fell in love with what I read. I signed up for their newsletter can I follow the kitties that way. Couple of years after finding them on the web I was able to finally make it to North Carolina to really meet the kitties there. It was beyond amazing to say the least. I couldn't get over how clean everything was how good it smelled for having so many kitties how nice the volunteers war and how precious and how clean and cared for the kitties looked. About a year-and-a-half later I was blessed to be able to visit them again and the same thing, very clean smelled wonderful all the kitties looked in great shape. These folks really take the care of the shelter seriously. They get superb Medical Care, better than a lot of the clients that come to the vet clinic that I work at give their pets. They get their medicines they need special Foods they need and tons and tons of love. I am so very grateful to be able to say that I have been there met these kitties met Alana the lady that started it and follow these kitties in their emails. I highly recommend everyone go visit them to see for themselves and sponsor a kitty if you can. I can't say enough good things about the kitties the people the shelter!
This rescue goes above and beyond for the cats that no one else wants and gives them the love they all deserve- how ever long they have
As a cat rescue/sanctuary shelter myself, I respect and admire the work BCR does! They go above and beyond for each and every cat that crosses their threshold! TLC for however long each cat has is given above and beyond by the BCR staff!
BCR is a source of love and support for the cats and for the people that support them and those that follow them I'm always reading the healthy tips to keep cats healthy. They take the time to "teach" us about what is harmful to cats and how to better care for our furry babies. I love to watch the cats playing when they show us the tours and videos. Their dedication is constant and their love for their animals knows no bounds. They deserve to be recognized as a GREAT 5Star Nonprofit.
God Bless this beautiful rescue and Sanctuary and especially Alana Miller who started it . Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary takes all the sick and blind cats deemed worthless . These cats are not worthless, they love , play , eat sleep , and live like any normal cat . They deserve to live their lives not be euthanized because of their handicaps or sickness. With the right care like they receive at BCR they live long happy lives . That's their right . To be loved and cared for and when the time comes, die with dignity. This is what Alana and her staff do . They let these cats live a good life no matter how long they have on this earth . You can tell how loved these kitties are by the millions of people who sponsor, donate , send packages , do clicks , and contests just for them . BCR is a very worthy cause because ALL the money donated is used for the cats only . What's left to say except BCR is the cream of the crop. There is no place in the world like them who truly loves , cares , and shows compassion for their cats like they do ! BCR is my no.1 place for donating and sponsoring a cat , ( I sponsor Catherine) .
Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary is one of the most amazing animal sanctuaries ever . Once a blind or sick cat gets there , they never leave as this is their furrever home . When they cross Rainbow Bridge , they are cremated and their ashes are buried in the memorial garden on the property . These kitties are given love , warm beds , more food than they can eat , toys , meds and veterinary care when needed , donations of everything they need from sponsors and loving cyber parents . May God always Bless Alana , the staff who works there and especially the beautiful kitties . Because without BCR many of these purrfect cats would not be alive , no what it's like to have warm beds , food , meds , toys , and the love of Mama Alana Miller and millions of cyber parents .
BCR takes care of cats that usually get euthanized because their adoption chances are poor.
With excellent care the cats thrive despite their health issues. BCR is one of the charities I support financially. So far I haven't been able to visit since I live out of state, but their great
newsletters give me a chance to see what's going on.
I am a long term volunteer for a no-kill, non-profit shelter in a major U.S. and I have followed BCRS for over a decade. What impresses me the most is their attitude not only towards their cats but towards their client-base and followers. To these folks, the cats come first and the client-base second with EVERYTHING else following. They keep their public informed, they give their public 100% transparency, 100% access on a 24/7 basis. They actually CORRESPOND with their clients and all of this brings in great donations for such a small entity with no apparent major corporation's contributions. They then take these funds and make things even better for the cats and increase their ability to handle additional cats. To these folks, this is not a job, it is not a business - it is a true labor of love.
These folks do everything it takes to get these special highest risk kitties the chance for life and love they deserve. They would instantly be put down at any normal shelter. They then share with the world the kitties' stories through a social media blitz matched by no one else that I have seen with scheduled live tours, 24/7 internet cameras, newsletters, contests and any other media they an think of all with a minimum number of paid staff and a host of great volunteers. They have a very high total donation to used for cat care ratio. Your money goes to the cats!
as a rescuer of furbabies myself i love BCR for the compassion they have .unwanted babies have a chance to live out their lives w the assurance of a lifetime commitment of care. it's not easy running a organization of this magnitude wo government assistance .grants and compassionate people donate time,money and help wherever they can. i support them w likes,shares and daily clicks. i watch the tours and am so grateful 4 alana,and staff who work diligently to keep the sanctuary clean and care for the babies. and when babies cross they r brought back and placed in a memorial garden. so the term "a furever home" rings 4ever here. we r family here we share the good times and cry 2gether when 1 crosses. we r assured that they r loved and cared 4 by beautiful souls.ty alana 4 ur vision.
as a supporter of this beautiful place i would give them 100's of stars if I could. Alana is one of the most compassionate people living. she is caring for furbabies in need of love,vet care etc. as a follower i have watched live tours shared with them the losses of many b/c of dreaded diseases that attack kitties. Alana and the many volunteers that love and care for them endure so many challenges. but Alana keeps right on trucking thru these challenges with love and any and everything needed to give them that "FUREVER" home. when it's time to cross they r returned and placed in a memorial garden for final rest. How cool is that. she runs this sanctuary by the donations and supplies by people who care and support. I hope these comments help anyone who doubts the authenticity of this place. God bless this sanctuary and those who care for and love the many babies who have benefited from the love and care Blind Cat Rescue gives.**************************************************
I love this group because they give their all for every cat they can... love and care and treatment...they go above and beyond to educate and fundraise for everything these precious creatures need, want and deserve
Blind Cat Rescue & Santuary became known to me when Snicker was very sick. They got him medical help, loved him and saved his life. For over five years BCR&S, has grown and developed. They give dignity to blind and suffering cats. They are Angel's of kindness and a refuge. I love them.
thebepitomy of what a rescue should be, whether for cats or anyn animal. as ive said before bcr is all about the cats in teir care, from medical stuff to gropoming psychological stuff, etc the cats come first last and always.
its very simple concerning this group. they are all about the cats and the cats come first no matter what. no bull. they rock.
I discovered Blind Cat Rescue when I adopted a blind kitten. Several blind cats later, I still follow them; I'm still learning, from them, how to avoid making so many health mistakes with our small herd of blind cats. Our blind cats are our family, and Blind Cat Rescue is our "life coach". Blind Cat Rescue rocks!
They also work tirelessly to educate the public. 5 stars!
Their hearts are 100% for these beautiful cats. An extremely dedicated and loving group of people take care of these cats who have no other option. Cannot say enough about this organization. They are the absolute best.
This organization has nothing but the cats' lives as their MAIN goal. They do everything possible to give these cats a fair chance at a good life. When others might turn them away, this group welcomes them with open arms. I only wish I lived closer to this group, so I might help them with their efforts. They are truly wonderful and I so appreciate and respect all they do!
We have a blind cat, Squeaker. He was a victim of a hoarder: 70+ cats in a singlewide. Upper respiratory infections spread through the cats, and all developed eye problems. All needed one or both eyes removed. Squeaker had to have both removed. He came to us when he was about 1 1/2, and he's a teenager now. Our friends think that he can see somehow; he behaves exactly like all our other cats, is mischievous, fearless, and cuddles with cats who aren't feeling well. I became interested In Blind Cat Rescue because of Squeaker. I am thrilled that blind cats, whom many people won't adopt, have a loving, forever, happy home with them.
I have a totally blind cat and a cat who is FIV+, so I took a look at this website. You are taking care of these cats so wonderfully! They all look so happy--and everyone who cares for and visits them looks happy, too. No one should ever think that having a blind or FIV+ cat is a burden; they make wonderful companions. Thank you for publicizing them and showing that they can live totally normal lives with great joy.
Fabulous work doing so much for the handicapable felines!
Great people, great place for so many wonderful cats. They deserve everything. They do anything and everything for these critters. They are such devoted people. Their place is far cleaner than any house I have been in!
I can't tell you enough about this fabulous place. Alana and her people are very devoted to these wonderful creatures. They get the best care possible. They have even gone further to get their cats the kind of medical attention they need, and that includes chemo, which is costly. They will not let a cat just die, no, the cat will get all the possible care he can. They keep us abreast of things too. They are an awarded non-profit. BCR also has a separate facility for cats that are contagious with leukemia, but are not sick, or sick yet. They are a very worthy charity. Snicker, their spokescat says so too.
I first became aware of this sanctuary because I read "Homer the Blind Wonder Cat"
I contacted Gwen Cooper to thank her for telling Homer's story. Amazing!
This sanctuary has a big place in my heart and I hope it will in yours too!
Very great place where cats would otherwise be euthanized for being blind or otherwise are lovingly cared for for the rest of their lives. They have online tours and 24/7 camera set up so you can interact with the cats. The tours are relaxing and informative. I lose myself in those tours and can forget my pain.
Love the Facebook videos where they go on tour. Support them through Resqwalk, Amazon Smile, and eBay sales.
Although I had never visited, donated, or interacted with the staff at BCR, I did some research and found their web site when a blind kitten found its way to me. I was desperate for insight, advice, and reassurance that I could care for this little one, so I emailed them--they took the time to reply, and I found so much good advice with these people (angels, truly, for what they do); I was heartened by the response I received, and am happy to say I've had this little blind boy for over ten years now; he is happy and healthy, and lives with four sighted cats, and a one-eyed little gal who came to us about four years ago. Through BCR and my little kitty boy I've come to realize that a blind cat has to be about one of the sweetest things on earth! These people give everything for these cats.
I work with cat rescue groups in Pa. and it almost impossible to find homes and help for these animals in need. Congratulations to the people from Blind Cat Rescue for the time and love they give these special cats.
Even though I have never visited this Sanctuary,the posts I read on my e-mails and Facebook have convinced me that this is one of those charities that does its best to rescue and shelter the most challenging of cat cases. And at the same time remain a no-kill shelter. This is the greatest achievement.
They do beautiful work with the cats, and always take care of all, no matter what the diagnosis. This place is all heart, whether it's being overfilled with joy and a new cat or one that just makes you happy, or when the time comes to let go of a cat, and your heart breaks a little more each time. I can feel the love this place puts in to the cats and keeping the public aware of everything going on. Keep up the amazing work!
I started following BCR on Facebook about 4 years ago. The staff and volunteers are so dedicated to the kitties and I buy 2 of their calendars every year because I enjoy the pictures of the cats and the tidbits of information in the calendar. They have helped so many kitties over the years and they are so dedicated to their health as long as they remain at the shelter.
Thank you for all you do for kitties that come to you needing much deserved love and attention!
I have followed this organization on Facebook and supported their fundraising efforts for about three years now. As a cat lover, there is not a better cat rescue than Blind Cat Rescue and I hope to get there some day for a visit.
When the last of my five cats died last year, I was not able to adopt again. However, I felt bereft and wished I could just see some cats online. Other shelters have webcams, but not like BCR’s! I soon found myself keeping track of the cats, finding favorites in the different rooms, and checking in daily, and then becoming a monthly donor (I don’t sponsor a specific cat, I just figure it’s for all of them).
This organization is one-of-a-kind. Alana and her staff give these poor animals a loving home, no matter how sick they are. Some of the cats never even get to their “room,” they are so sick that they don’t make it, but BCR keeps at it – it’s like being an oncologist, I suppose – many of your patients die, but they all deserve comfort and dignity; and, many of them live long lives. I see the staff and volunteers spending time in the rooms with the cats, just giving them attention. The other day I watched one of my favorites, Charles, getting his claws clipped and his ears swabbed – he looked like he was loving it. Some of the situations these cats come from are absolutely heart-rending, but each cat is provided with medical attention and loving care. It is amazing to watch.
Many years I have supported Blind Cat Rescue. I look forward to the stories of help and hope they give each of the fur babies they take in toa forever home. All are treated with love and cared for in any and all health situations. Alana Miller and her staff, along with volunteers, are dedicated to all cats fortunate to be a part of BCR.
So happy to see that this made the top 2015 Non-Profits. Alana Miller, the founder, and the volunteers, work non-stop to make sure all the cats have wonderful purrfect homes. The cats are loved and cared for as family and it is this family that allows them to live and thrive. Those that support Blind Cat Rescue get Weekly Newsletters, kudos for helping sponsor the cats, cute Jib Jabs, personal emails, thank you messages, and so many more acknowledgements of the work and love for the cats and the sponsors. Thank you for acknowledging this wonderful Non-Profit.
I don't have enough words to express how very much I love Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary. One day I would love to visit. See all the beautiful cats and help out for awhile. They do so much for the cats in their care. Alana is such a blessing. She loves them with all her heart. God bless everyone there and every dear cat.
Snicker was the first cat I heard about at this rescue. He immediately won my heart and so did Blind Cat Rescue. I love reading the newsletters, and keeping up with what is new. The work they do is wonderful. All the cats are cared for and loved. They are happy, safe, and content cats. That is so obvious when looking at the cat-cams and videos. Hopefully, I will be able to visit one day, and meet the staff, and of course, the cats. In the meantime I shall continue to donate. God bless them for the love and care they provide.
I started following BCR at the forwarded post from a friend. I was so impressed that someone was doing something for blind cats, and soon for FIV and feline leukemia. I watched the open house videos on you tube and saw all the perches, toys, beds, litter boxes and staff...and cats prancing all over playing, resting in cute theme beds, cozying up to staff and most importantly being acknowledged and LOVED by the staff.So I became a sponsor to Penny, a beautiful white cat who is blind and deaf. I wish I had more money to sponsor at least 5. Maybe I will win publishers clearinghouse...lol. I see the devotion Alana and the staff have to treating these cats and giving them the best care and love. We all grieve when one passes as its like loosing a family member. I plan on taking a trip to visit BCR and volunteer for a week. Working on transportation. This is one GREAT sanctuary built on love. Thank you again BCR...you are THE best. Sharon Mahos
I haven't visited but if I were in the area you bet I would. I watch their videos and have contributed. The care they give their cats who suffer blindness and/or are infected with FIV or Feline Leukemia is amazing; they pull out all the stops to give these kitties a wonderful life. Great atmosphere, great caretakers, great medical care.
I have been following Blind Cat Rescue for a couple of years now on Ustream and Facebook. I think what these folks do for the kitties is amazing as otherwise these cats would have been put down. It's nice to know they have a forever home at the rescue and will never have to worry about being thrown out on the street. Bless these people. Bless the cats.
The kitties that are lucky enough to end up at BCR are shown the love they have deserved since the day they were born. Medical care is provided along with all the food, water and a warm dry clean bed to lie in. How could anyone not love that.
Blind Cat Rescue takes in, heals and houses many cats that otherwise would never find a home as these cats require infinite love and continuous care. As a pet parent of both a Feline HIV positive cat and a Feline Leukemia positive cat (both passed after long lives) I can attest to the commitment necessary to care for them. I commend BCR and salute them for their care and compassion for these cats, who live only because of Blind Cat Rescue.
I found this charity when researching help for FIV positive cats as I had one who lived to the age of 17. This organization takes animals that are doomed by the support systems who perceive these animals as unadoptable. Alana takes them in and provides the care they need to live good, secure and happy lives. She truly is an angel for them and they deserve this level of care. God Bless you, Alana.
It is very rare that in todays world people are helping and saving animals instead of killing them as soon or almost as soon as they reach a shelter. They do a great jobtakingcare of and loving these poor kitties. Thank you!
BCR provides such a great service to our furry friends that need the most help and compassion. I live out of state and donate to them because they provide such a unique service by taking in cats that need special help because of their conditions.
I saw BCR on Facebook and watched it and at first didn't know when it was on l would just keep finding it and loved the way they all looked after these poor cats then l found out what time it was on here in Australia and l now get notifications when it's on l also get news letters and l am informed when a kitty passes over that was really a good idea l know a lot of the kitties and the ones who do the tours and l now sponsor Liza and if l had the money l would go visit l want to see the kitties in person l also get the calender so l have a picture of them l don't use it
They are great, the volunteers are so dedicated.
This organization provides a safe and loving environment to cats that otherwise would not have a chance
I had the joy and privilege of spending five days volunteering at BCR a few years ago, and then was able to stop by one more time, for a brief visit (I live in Pennsylvania - if it were closer, I would be there volunteering a lot more often!). I also had the privilege of sponsoring some of their kitties until, sadly, my job changed and I could no longer afford it, but still donate one-time gifts when I can. I am very particular about charities I support, and the time I spent there showed me that they are truly a five-star-plus organization. While I can no longer be a regular sponsor, I have made sure that BCR is in my will.
They do a wonderful job taking in these cats that no one else wants to bother with. Their newsletters are great too!
I love BCR and Donate every month. Lurch is my man at BCR...
Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary is an amazing place. They give homes to cats that are blind, FIV+, or FELV+ that would otherwise be euthanized. Once they get to BCR they are in their forever home. The cats receive the best food, care, and all the love they could want. It's amazing to watch a scared, sick cat gradually become healthy and realize they are finally safe. Any cat that makes it to BCR is so lucky to get to a great home. If I were a cat, I'd love to end up there.
I found BCR one day by accident on Facebook when I happened to see one of their daily live tours. I had no idea how much that would change my life. I get such joy out of watching the kitties and I feel like they are mine too. BCR does an amazing job with the babies. They take cats that are blind, FIV+, and FELV+ that would otherwise be put down and give them a home. Each cat that comes there is promised a forever home. Even after they cross the rainbow bridge they are brought back and placed in the memorial garden. Each cat gets the best food and top notch medical care. They are loved so much. You can tell how happy they are by watching them. There is nothing better than watching a new kitty miraculously transform from a shy baby that wants to hide into a happy and confident cat. If I were I cat I wish I would be so lucky to live at BCR
BCRS takes in "hopeless" cases, cats who have led lives on the streets that can only be described as horror stories. BCRS will treat any illness, provide a secure forever home, for any cat they take in. They spread into the world the concepts of compassion and commitment to the most helpless cats in the country. This philosophy drew me in and I have been a supporter for years.
Every time I visit BCR, the cats are well groomed and fed and the rooms and floors are so clean! I visit during the week and every room and cat are clean and healthy....they don't just put on "good show" for their Open Houses! I've been visiting for over 6 years and donate an autoship food donation from chewy.com every month! I also sponsor five cats , $30 per month for each. I know my donations all go for the good of the cats.
I've been supporting the work of Blind Cat Rescue for many years! I sponsor two cats, Carrot (blind) and Brandy (FeLV+). I'm close enough that I can visit on monthly Open House events too. BCR is amazing and the excellent care and love these cats receive is heart warming! All of these cats would have been "throw away" cats but Alana gives them a chance of having a full life with plenty of food, comfy beds, feline friends, toys and tons of love from the staff and visitors. All the cats receive the best vet care!!
This organization will take any cat who needs help, no matter what his/her condition, and will treat each with dignity, kindness and respect. They will deal with individual issues great and small, and consider the big picture as well as the small details. This is a one of a kind organization with a big heart and outstanding staff.
This has to be the BEST cat care facility ever! I know my money goes to help the cats who would otherwise receive no help at all. The staff is so dedicated and the facility is the cleanest I have ever seen. Very high quality! Wish I could visit more often.
This has to be the finest charitable organization I've ever encountered that helps needy animals, specifically cats. I first encountered them on facebook and have followed them for a few years now. They never cease to amaze me with their level of commitment and the lengths they go to to save each little kitty that ends up there. The love they feel for their kitties shines through.
I love that there is a place where cats with special needs can have a forever home. I think that is just amazing. And they take such good care of them and let everyone see how happy they are. I love the tours online. We can see the cats daily and get to know them. I wish I didn't live so far away. Bless them all!
Although I have never had the privilege of visiting BCR ( I live in Texas) I came across their website and have been hooked. What an awesome organization!! In a time where there is so many things that are "disposable", it is so good to see an organization rescue these kitties and provide them a loving, healthy atmosphere for however long that may be!! I try to help, from afar, by supporting them with my purchases through Amazon Smile and donating money and points through Paw Points (Fresh Step cat litter). Someday, I hope to take a road trip to visit this wonderful establishment!!
I sponsor a kitty named Charles and have supported this charity for a number of years. The compassion they show to cats who are not considered adoptable is remarkable, and I'm proud to help them in any small way I can because they do so much.
BCR is the best! You give life, love and hope to fur babies that would not have a chance otherwise. Alana and her team are angels to take on such a task. Keep up the great work. The kitties appreciate it, knowing they are safe and warm.
I love what you guys do! These beautiful kitties wouldn't be here if it weren't for the love and care you give them. If they could speak, one can only imagine the words of gratitude they would express. You are my favourite charity and my hat goes off to everything you do to give these babies the life they deserve.
I have supported Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary for almost 10 years. I have watched as BCRS has grown and evolved in its mission to care for cats with extreme medical problems. I am amazed by their resiliency and energy and by the love they show for all the cats in their charge. I am also amazed how they bring their story to the public. I will support Blind Cat Rescue as long as I am able to do so and encourage others to do the same.
I found BCR on Twitter, learned more about their work and then followed them on Facebook. I have donated to them several times, including a special project to install fire protection sprinklers to protect the cats. I recommend BCR highly, they deserve your support.
Blind Cat Rescue offers a home to cats that have no place else to go. Without the hard work and compassion of the volunteers of this charity, these wonderful creatures, who are so in need of compassion and care, would be put down without ever experiencing love, or safety, or happiness again.
Taking care of animals who are in need is such noble work, and I've chosen to support their work for many years now. I'm so glad to be able to do my small part.
