Just as everyone favors their children over everyone else's, I think my cats are absolutely the best in the world. So, although I'm sure there are many, many worthy animal groups out there, for me there can never be one better than Cat Connection because my 3 wonderful "Poozers" came from there. Cat Connection often rescues cats from their very last days at shelters, and now having lived with these amazing, magical creatures for 2 1/2 years, I never cease uttering fervent prayers of thanksgiving to Cat Connection for having snatched them from the very jaws of death. It also breaks my heart to think that there are so very, very many more of them out there, each one its own amazing wonderful little individual personality (of course none as great as the Poozers, but still wonderful!). The fact that Cat Connection is out there with zero money fighting to save as many as they can, and giving them a great interim home in the "Cattery" at Beverly Oaks Hospital where they can play and be uncaged, is a miracle on a daily basis. One of my Poozers got sick with a respiratory infection right after I brought him home, and they took him back and nursed him back to health free of charge. They also let me board all 3 there shortly thereafter when we had the hottest day in recorded LA history and my building had a days-long power outage. Despite their lack of funds, they helped me when I needed them, because for them it's all about the animals, and they will selflessly do everything they can to make sure no animal is left in need. Please support them in any way you can!
I've been a "foster mom" for almost 20 years. This is a wonderful organization started by a regular woman who saw the need. 100% of donations go to the animals for food, medical care and the cost to bail them out of the city shelters (the pound). No animals are ever kept in cages. The cats are either fostered in a volunteers home or in "the cattery". The cattery is a room full of kitty condos, ramps and trees where the cats can be seen daily. It's located next to Beverly Oaks Animal Hospital in Sherman Oaks at 14302 Ventura Blvd.
There are NO EMPLOYEES. All goes DIRECTLY to the animals. This is a small, home-grown, grass-roots 503c charity. All donations are fully tax deductible.
They have many cats and kittens for adoption. You can visit their website at www.catconnectionLA.org to see the animals or find out more information. Please contact them if you're looking to adopt a cat, or are interested in volunteering.
