What a generous and selfless organization... Virtually all the donations go to care for their cats.

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.

Many years ago, I had a Manx who lost his vision when he was 15 years old; he lived to 17. He was amazing in how he dealt with his blindness. I stumbled across Blind Cat Rescue several years ago and am totally impressed with the love, care and concern Alana and those who work with her have for the cats. I have been a donor since. It touches my heart that BCR has now expanded to include FIV and FeLV cats as well. The newsletters always make me smile and the cats look extremely well cared for and happy. Even when one has to cross over the Rainbow Bridge, it is done with such compassion and kindness; you will, of course, cry for each one ... yet their lives can be celebrated because at BCR they ALL matter!

I have been following Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary for 2 years now on Facebook and this is the best non-profit organization I have found. The owner, Alana, truly cares for the cats and provides them with the best care available and the most love you can imagine. There are numerous volunteers who devote their time to the rescue and you can come visit it at any time. They even have a guest house to stay in and all they ask is that you volunteer to help in the rescue while you are there. This organization deserves to win any contest that they enter.

This is the best organization that I have ever seen for helping kitties that would otherwise not be given the love and the care that they deserve. All of the BCR staff and volunteers really love the kitties and it shows during the posted pictures and videos posted to Facebook. The actual facility is always kept very clean for the kitties and the grounds outside are beautiful. I especially like the rose garden where they plant a rose bush and a little nameplate for each kitty that walks over the rainbow bridge. I really hope to visit one day and meet all the kitties in person.

I have been following Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary and donating since July of last year. They are a wonderful charity that does so much to help cats in need. I'm so glad that BCR exists to care for FELV+, FIV+, and blind cats that would otherwise be euthanized. They give these cats a stable, lifetime home and are so great about caring for all their different health and social needs.

They are wonderful about keeping in touch with their supporters. They are always giving updates by video, blog, Facebook, email, etc. It makes it so easy to understand how much hard work and love they put into taking care of the cats. I absolutely love BCR and will continue to support them!

Hi~~
I donate to BCR every year. They genuinely love each kitty in their care. It's hard to imagine it, but they KNOW each kitty and his/her needs. I remember watching a video where they were giving WATER THERAPY to a lady cat. She had her little vest and one gal was in the water with her (guiding her and encouraging her) while another gal was on the sidelines encouraging her. It was a wading pool. So cute. Another time, a kitty required surgery and wasn't eating afterward... for 2 days. What they didn't DO to get him to EAT! On the third day, he ATE! What a celebration! These people DO care! Any time you view live stream (ANYWHERE), the room is clean, the cats have clean beds and cat trees as well as toys. They wander freely and enjoy their lives. Blind cats tracking the flight of a bird is quite a sight to behold. The cats have QUALITY in their lives!

Open house honest. Everything BCR does is top notch. I have supported for a couple of years now and I am impressed with how responsive they are to their supporters. Long distance access at almost anytime is a fabulous perk for long distance donors. Snicker and the crew are a great example of how the "it takes a village" philosophy extends from childcare to abandoned animal care!
BCR, you rock!

Blind Cat Rescue gives cats who would otherwise be euthanized a wonderful home with plenty of love. They are always so thankful for donations and they are an organization who will put the prize money towards caring for the cats.

Amazing organization, dedicated staff. They have saved so many loving animals from certain death over the years and given them a place to live out their lives in a happy, clean, loving, caring environment. I am a huge supporter of BCR. I am so grateful for what they do.
