Need knows no season. As much as we would like to believe otherwise, each time we celebrate a victory in rescuing a homeless pet, each adoption, each fundraising or food drive; once the dust has settled, we are left with the cold, hard truth. It’s never over.
The Animal Refuge Center goes through a lot of cat and dog food each month. In our community, selfless and dedicated volunteers provide food and shelter at community cat colonies throughout Hardin County. Our Community Cat Volunteers need support, because so many of them feed homeless pets from out of their own pockets, out of the love in their own hearts. It is a never-ending task, but someone has to do it.
Your donation to the ARC Food Drive will go directly to feed homeless pets, period. This allocation keeps our shelter pets fed and nourished throughout the year, this money goes to feed pets that will never know any home but the streets. This money goes to lead those homeless pets to the safe haven of the cat colony that keeps them out of the dangers of trash cans and dumpsters and other threats, their full tummies earning us enough trust that these animals can be trapped, spayed/neutered and released…or socialized and adopted into a Forever Home. Trap-Neuter-Release ensures that there are fewer kittens on the streets.
If you wish for your monthly commitment to go DIRECTLY to Community Cats, please visit the link and pledge your support at Cookie’s Legacy. Your ongoing contribution will not only feed Community Cats at local feral colonies, that money will also go toward Trap-Neuter-Release programs and other spay and neuter projects that our shelter has planned for the near future.
We can’t thank enough the people who have reached out to help the Animal Refuge Center throughout the last 25+ years. As we head into our third generation of caretakers, we urge you to consider making your own commitment to our promise to make lives better for Hardin County’s homeless pets.
