Review for Aslan's Cats Inc, Verbank, NY, USA
It was sheer luck that we connected with Aslan's Cats. 6 years ago when a local rescue where we volunteered, posted that a cat they had trapped, "Boo Boo" tested positive for Feline Leukemia. They were ill-equipped to provide on going care for "Boo Boo" but were happy to report that he was accepted by Aslan's Cats and would be transferred there. We were intrigued and our research began. What, who and where was Aslan's Cats? What did they do? What we discovered was a quaint and colorfully painted Victorian house, nestled in the Catskills with a large fenced in back yard which housed cats with Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). We felt that the work Aslan's Cats was doing was so important, we wanted to support them in any way we could. Our family and 2 other families in our town have been visiting Aslan's Cats now for the past 6 years at least 3 times a year. Each visit we bring cat food, cat treats and cat toys. The hours we spend there with these special cats that we've grown to love seem to fly by every visit. These cats are rescued from the streets, kill shelters, hoarding situations, just to name a few. Very few people or facilities are willing to take on the medical care required for these cats with Feline Leukemia or FIV. Hilary, the Director has dedicated her time, energy and love to these cats when they otherwise would have met their demise. No cages are needed. A space for them to roam freely, receive love, medical care, a warm bed and nutritious food is what awaits them at Aslan's Cats. This sanctuary is their refuge and safe place. Quite frankly, it is ours too!
Thank you for this review. Our President Sabrina and her family have worked tirelessly to create a haven for the animals. Without Sabrina's vision, dedication, financial help, and compassion for the special needs animals..Aslan's Cats would NOT exist. Sabrina has been the force behind the scenes since day one and also deserves to be mentioned. Her commitment and life long dedication to animal welfare has never wavered. She has been the silent force working constantly behind the scenes to make Aslan's remain a happy and well run Sanctuary since the day she incorporated the organization.
