I found BCR on Facebook quite by accident - since then I have been a regular donor with food; gifts. These guys are amazing. The work they do with great courage, as it can be heartbreaking when they have to take in animals that no one else wants. They do such a great work and look after these kitties so well, but that all takes time and money and lots and lots of love. I love BCR

I first came across this organisation on Facebook. Since that day, i've followed the progress and also some of the very sad times of these beautiful cats. Alana Miller and all the people that work there are true angels. The fact that they help love, care and treat these cats with pure dignity and the joy they receive from the cats in return is truly wonderful to see. God bless them all.

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.

I first became aware of BCRS on Twitter when I saw a photo of a young blind cat named Casper. I wanted to know more about the organization and the people who worked so diligently to help these sick cats. As I learned more about this rescue and sanctuary, I felt compelled through compassion to do something to help these helpers and the cats under their care. What they do everyday makes this world a better place.

Look, I am biased toward all good rescues. So, my review of nearly any outfit will be laudatory, but today I am taking time to highlight this one particular Cat Rescue, who is head and shoulders above the rest of us animal lovers and rescuers.

What is Blind Cat Rescue? What they are not is a group trying to pull your heartstrings to collect money. Their cats alone do that. BCR is also not just a regular rescue organization. By their very choice of who to support they speak silently of a high moral concern - caring for the most vulnerable and unseen discards. Who would even think of blind cats, and their plight? With uncommon forethought BCR chooses to help those who would otherwise be ignored, abused, and routinely euthanized by people of smaller minds.

It takes courage to advocate for the unseen and most needy of any group. And, you need grit to launch and maintain such an effort. It takes far more than presenting a sad story to help these wonderful felines. Commitment, stubborn force, great heart, and lack of pity are the tools required to make a difference in this case.

I routinely read their newsletter not to evoke a tear or gain a feeling of comfort by the success stories there. I read their stuff to help keep me focused on what it takes to do my bidding, in what small way I can to make a difference with the strays that cross my path. If BCR can accomplish so many goals, then who am I to fret about not having time or money or energy to make that one stop along the commute, or take the one extra Saturday for TNR, or any of the myriad little things that make a small life just a little better.

By their example I am always reminded of this wonderful quote. 'By your effort you many not change the world, but you will change the entire world for that one animal.' One person can and often does make all the difference. So, I applaud Blind Cat Rescue not just for their efforts, but for showing us all that putting one foot in front of the next can accomplish magical things.

Blind Cat Rescue is magic. I love them. "No brag, just fact." (Marion Morrison)

These people do amazing work. They give homes to cats that would otherwise be euthanized. But instead here they find a forever home until they cross the rainbow. Charity work is thankless, let's all take an opportunity to thank them.

I can't remember how I found BCR on Facebook but so impressed by the way Alanna and and all the helpers work so tirelessly to help and care for these cats who otherwise be put to sleep, with this safe haven these cats spend the rest of their lives knowing only love and kindness. I had no idea just how many cats were affected by FIV and FLV and so often neglect by us humans has such devastating effects on these innocent little lives. I live in the UK and now the proud mum of Toby, a little FIV boy. I would love to visit BCR one day but until then do the daily click and any competitions I can to support the amazing work of this dedicated team

I have been a supporter of BCR for a couple of years now. What a wonderful organization that takes care of the hardest kitties to find homes for and gives them a lifetime of soft beds, warm food and plenty of unconditional love until they cross the rainbow bridge.

I discovered BCR through another humane society I support. I was impressed with the work they do with blind cats, as so many shelters just euthanize them. Some of the cats they have saved are amazing and would not have had a chance otherwise. BCR shares news of their work with donors, and responds personally and promptly to donations, questions and comments. I am glad to know there is such a caring organization for these special needs cats!

These folks are awesome. It's hard caring for the dumped pets of America, especially the ones with health problems (usually the reason they have been dumped). I know from personal experience, as I have a small, private, no-kill shelter for cats and small dogs, and most of my rescues are animals with chronic health issues. BCR does so much, not only to help the cats with disabilities, but also to educate the public. They are one of my regular charities, even though I am on a fixed income..

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

They do amazing work providing forever love for cats in need. They educate the public regarding what causes blindness in cats and make people aware of the fact that blind cats are amazing!

I believe that all kitties are in the best of hands with all that Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary do. They give hope for all those loving and beautiful cats that cannot see and may be afraid or feel uneasy. They provide a lot of information regarding what they do and I truly wish I had so much more funds to give away for this organization. They truly shine providing education to all of us, helping the cats finding homes for adoptable ones and a safe haven for those that cannot be adopted. Thank you so much for all the love and all you do for our best furry friends.
