Cat Depot Donor Pledges Donation for Every Cat Adopted


Challenges Community to Match Pledge




Sarasota, Fla. – (June 26, 2014) – An anonymous donor has pledged a donation of $10 for every cat adopted at Cat Depot between June and December 2014. The donation will benefit the Friends Like Me Program which provides emergency medical care and treatment to Cat Depot cats and kittens who are sick, injured or have chronic illnesses. The donor is challenging the community to match the pledge at $10, or for as little as $1.00 per cat, to help with surgery, x-rays, special food and medications.




“We are grateful for this generous and creative pledge. The challenge will not only encourage more adoptions, but supply greatly needed funds for medical care,” said Shelley Thayer, executive director. “Last year we adopted 846 cats and kittens, and we anticipate finding homes for over 900 this year. We encourage supporters to step up and join the adoption pledge challenge.”
