This was not written by me, but by a woman who works with No More Chains. I am reposting it here to spread the word.
You all know me as a “dog lover” and I definitely am that, but I also love all critters. But while going door to door in Fairbury handing out straw to chained and penned dogs, we came across a hoarder situation with over 30 cats living in a house in horrible condition in south east Nebraska. The owners are very loving, and go without eating for days at a time, in order to feed the animals that they love. The husband is pretty slow and the woman is obviously retarded. While we were all enjoying a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner, they didn’t eat for two whole days, until someone brought them some frozen pizzas.
Work with this couple will be on going, as I’m trying to find out if they have a social worker?? Family??? Any other help. They are just the nicest, sweet people, but we need to get some of those cats out of there asap! Some are really young kitties, maybe 5 weeks old (but weaned), and all colors, sizes, sex, temperaments, etc. etc. Most of the cats are not the best socialized with people, but some are very friendly–others need some work.
So—Homeless No More Rescue in Fairbury has been working with Nebraskans For Companion Animals, and together we have been providing vet care, food and litter until we can find foster homes. The cats eat popcorn when they run out of food. Yes, popcorn. And I’m sure the two people do too. Would you consider taking just one? If you can’t, and I know we all have our reasons, maybe you know of someone in the area who might. Could you repost this email to your friends, and/or facebook page. Donations would be so welcome!! The cats are just beautiful!! We hope to have photo’s in the near future.
Marta from Homeless No More Rescue can be reached directly at:firstname.lastname@example.org 402-806-7339 http://www.homelessnomore.webs.com/
Marta has had a cat rescue in her home for many many years, but she is not a 501c3 yet–but we are going to work on that for her, so donations are not deductible at this time. If you would like to donate to her veterinary’s office directly, we can get that info to you too. Marta is financing all the cats she takes in herself, and as you can imagine, this is a tremendous task. Please help Marta help these people. I will also be taking a food basket as a Christmas gift to them too as they have nothing, especially at the end of the month. Nothing!! The woman especially is very thin.
Donations can also be sent to Nebraskans for Companion Animals, 1607 North 14 Str., Beatrice, NE 68310 We are not a 501c3 at this time, but are incorporated and are in the process of applying for non-profit status. But I can assure you that every dime will go to help Marta for these cats and the many other cats she is trying to help.
