Garfield Needs Your Help

Garfield Received Your Help!

Thank you to Jillian DeShazer, Susan Gahs, Tammy Runkles, Joann Arnold, Amy Schneider, Sarah Key, Carol Thompson, Miesa Myrick, and four anonymous donors for their generous donations to cover medical expenses for beloved colony cat, Garfield.

Garfield lived in his colony since 2003 and has several medical issues going on, most notably a severe heart condition. He was nursed by a wonderful foster parent and is now living with his original colony caretaker, Mike, and adjusting well to living indoors with his new catmate, Cupcake.

We are hoping for a happy and long life for Garfield, and thanks to these generous and thoughtful friends, he just may.


Thank you to Legal & General America!

We would like to extend a BIG Thank You to Legal & General America for their generous donation. We are also proud to have them as a new corporate sponsor.
