BCR is an amazing rescue that takes animals that most would deem "unadoptable" and gives them a forever sanctuary and home. They take such good care of the cats. My husband and I visited last September, and volunteered for a day. It was an awesome experience, and we want to go back again to see all the wonderful cats.
My wife and I have been supporters of BCR for two years volunteering with the daily morning cleaning, working with the employees, and personally experiencing the high-level of care the 90 cats in their care receive. We can say with confidence that the dedication of this organization to its core purpose, providing a forever home to cats that would be otherwise euthanized, is an amazing. Everything they do points to one result, the care and nurturing of cats that are otherwise shunned by society. We, and many others, will continue to support their efforts in any way we can, as we hope Great Non-Profits will also.
BCR is a wonderful charity. I believe they have significantly helped to bring attention to blind cats and how they can make wonderful pets. It wasn't that long ago that if a cat was determined to be blind, it would be euthanized by a lot of cities' animal control departments. Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary helped to educate the public about how these kitties deserve a chance at life just as much as any other cat. I was also happy to discover them when we adopted our own blind cat. It is obvious how compassionate and caring they are about all of the cats they take care of. I have also donated many times in the past, and always receive wonderful thank you letters for my donations. I believe they go above and beyond not just in caring for the cats but also with their donors and supporters. They are genuinely happy for every donation they receive, and take none of it for granted.
I first saw BCR on a video of blind cats "watching" a bird fly. I then watched one of the tours and fell in love with all the little guys!! But as much as I enjoy watching the cats, I enjoy being a sponsor (I sponsor the adorable little Matthew)! This non-profit is VERY well run. I am kept informed, my questions are answered in a timely manner and they offer many non-financial ways to help the cats. I like that they offer many ways people can help, when they have an abundance, they help other shelters and they encourage people to adopt in their own communities. These cats are not for adoption and are totally spoiled--living a great life in their forever home--that makes it fun to watch and to support BCR. Finally, BCR has drawn together a community (people who tune in to watch tours on Facebook) of on-line people that are a kind, supportive and respectful--a rare thing on the internet these days.
I have set up a monthly donation to this charity. They do wonderful work, providing a loving environment for blind cats, and for FeLV and FIV positive cats. I love reading their newsletters, and watching the cats on their web cams. There are so few shelters that accept cats with these disabilities, and they are very difficult to place in foster homes. I am truly thankful for this charity and their dedication.
I have been following Blind Cat Rescue online for several years now. They do great work, supporting needy and deserving cats who otherwise might never get a chance to live a full life. I love to hear stories about their cats and the work that they do.
I'm thankful that this rescue exists, they provide love, security and lifetime care for these precious cats, that otherwise would have been put down. I'm owned by 4 cats myself and believe that cats are wonderful, I can't imagine life without them. Thank you Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary for all that you do for these kitties.
I run a shelter for cats that have been abused physically and emotionally. I love what BCR stands for and their core motto of providing a loving home for unwanted, not perfect cats- which is near and dear to my heart. I love supporting them with purchases of coffee, calendars, cookbooks, etc. May they always be here to continue their amazing work!
I not only am a donor, but I am a sister cat shelter that specializes in providing physical and socialization therapy on special needs cats and kittens. I know the same hearta aches and joys that BCR feels daily. Financial support is a definite must for BCR but just as important is the emotional support of donors and sister/brother shelters. I tip my hat to you, BCR!
I started following BCR on Facebook about a year ago. I watch the live tours at least once a day and and donate when ever I can. I love that these blind and FELV/Fiv cats have a furever home. They are so well taken care of and live in such a loving, caring and very clean environment. If you make a donation from their Amazon Wishlist the boxes are opened on their LIVE Facebook broadcast. I hope to visit BCR in the future. Thank you Alana and all the wonderful people that work there each day to take care of all the cats.
