The Happy Paws Kitten Rescue called on us asking for help with vet bills for Buddy, Precious, and Miley, three cats they rescued. The vet bill was $181, but because of all the work they do in rescuing shelter cats, and because they have a goal to spay/neuter all of them, we sent them $300. Below is a “thank you” note we received from Jill Coffey of Happy Paws.
“Dear Helping Paws,
Thank you so much for your generous donation to our spay/neuter program. This will help us out a lot! We charge just $65 for all our kittens. By the time we pay for all medical and spay/neutering, it takes every dime. That’s not counting the food and vet bills if they get sick, and many coming from the shelters do. I spent $18,000 of my own money last year. I am a teacher and my husband is a welder. We are not rich by any means, but we love those fur babies. Thank you so much for helping us to save these little darlings. It means the world to me. ~Jill Coffey”
