Mid-Michigan Cat Rescue
Every cat deserves a loving home and we are dedicated to helping them find their perfect family!
Notice: there has been a delay in renewing MMCR's nonprofit status. Consequently, we will not be hosting adoption events at Petsmart store in West Lansing until the issue is resolved. Sarah has been working with Petsmart as well as the Rescue's attorney and accountant to resolve this issue, which we expect will happen shortly.
In the meantime, adoptions will take place by appointment at either our Dimondale or Albion location. We're still open for all business, and cats continue to be available for adoption, only the location has changed for the moment. Please contact us by email with questions or to arrange a meet and greet. We've got lots of kitties waiting for their forever home.
Saving Kitty Lives in Georgia
Last week we received an email that there are 30+ kittens on death row at a shelter in Georgia. The email was from a volunteer at another rescue who is driving to Georgia and will bring back however many cats she could find rescues to take. We put a plea out on our Facebook page to raise donations to help with medical costs as every cat will need vet work before being available for adoption. We got such a great response that we actually emptied the Georgia shelter of all 92 cats and kittens they were housing. Now, the cages are empty! Around 12:45 am Sunday morning, 11/18/2018, all 92 cats arrived to start their new lives at MMCR.
Now, just because the kitties are safe doesn’t mean this is over. The next phase is starting. They will need meds and loving care before they are ready for adoption.
We are asking for $75 donations to sponsor a kitty or $25 donations to help with emergency medical costs for sick kitties. You can PayPal your donation to firstname.lastname@example.org or if you are on a computer follow the link on our website.
You could also sign up to volunteer as we desperately need volunteers now and in the upcoming weeks at our Albion location Monday through Sunday 9-6. Here's just a few of the things that Sarah needs help with: records, cage care, medical, making doxy mixture, tags, brushing, washing dishes, laundry, washing floors, etc. And, anyone can help with dishes & laundry. Fill out a volunteer app and email it to email@example.com. Please put NEW VOLUNTEER FOR GEORGIA RESCUE in the subject line so we know to process right away.
And you can help by adopting — we went into this rescue with already 150 cats in our program looking for their furever home. If you sponsor a Georgia kitty, you can receive 50% off the adoption fee when it is healthy and ready to be adopted
UPDATE TIME!! All of our New kitties got their faces washed yesterday, larger cages got set up for some, medications got started & some kittens had to start bottle feedings. Everyone is adjusting & now a part of the MMCR family where not only are they off death row but we will take a lifetime commitment to care for them, love them & help them find a furever home. Everyone is already starting to look better but we are excited to watch them grow & get to know each personality which is what helps us match them into the perfect home
Thank you to everyone who has donated & volunteered so far. This rescue has only just begun and we still have a lot ahead of us but we know we can do it with amazing volunteers & supporters on our side!!
Please check our Facebook page for updates.
It’s that time of year again... Kitten season and we have our first newborns here in Albion! If you remember the mom we trapped out in Dimondale, well, she was pregnant and last week she gave birth to five very plump hungry buff and orange kittens! Everyone is doing well!
Thank you Zeta Theta Omega!
Several members from Zeta Theta Omega spent a few hours assisting with chores at the MMCR Albion House. We each got a chance to utilize our skills in order to help out; together we cleaned cages, did laundry, performed office and clerical work, sorted cat treats, administered medications, and of course socialized the cats and kittens! While volunteering, we were able to interact with the wonderful cats at the Albion House, while learning all about their personalities and the MMCR organization as a whole. Our members had a great time being involved in such a great cause, and are excitedly planning a donation drive for the kitties!
