Chicago Cat Rescue Turns Six!

It's our birthday! Well, almost. Saturday, October 13, Chicago Cat Rescue turns 6 years old! Happy Birthday to us! As we approach our 6th birthday we have so much to be thankful for,  especially all our wonderful supporters, volunteers, foster parents and adopters. We can't believe it's been 6 years since Julie and Cindy got the idea to  form Chicago Cat Rescue. They went from volunteering at a local animal rescue group to running a group of their own, in hopes of making an even bigger difference in the lives of cats in the Chicago-land area.

Ravyn, one of our adoptable cats, gets in the birthday mood!
We have come a long way in the past 6 years. We grew from a group of four dedicated women with a dream to an established rescue organization. Over the past 6 years we have changed hundreds of lives, educated hundreds more on proper cat care, firmly planted Sexy Black on the social calendars of animal lovers and rescuers across the city and even changed our names.

As much as we've grown, we have a long way to go. For years Julie and Cindy ran the organization pretty much by themselves. Over the past year and a half we have added a core team of dedicated volunteers, but we need more. We need volunteers to take pictures of our cats, to distribute promotional materials, to plan events, to write profiles, to design promotional materials and so much more. Even if you just have a few hours a week to help us balance the books or drop off cat food to foster parents, it would be a huge help! And of course we have a never ending need for foster parents.

Help us keep going another 6 years. Spread the word about Chicago Cat Rescue. We understand that many of you are already involved with other shelters and organizations, or have as many cats as you can care for. We simply ask you spread the word about us. If your friends are considering adopting, fostering of volunteering somewhere, send them our way! 

Also, if you should so happen to want to help us celebrate our birthday with a gift, we gladly accept donations! You can click the "donate" tab above or this link here.
