BARC Is Overloaded With Cats/Kittens & Needs Help

A Letter From Bett Sundermeyer,

Everyone,

BARC (Houston ‘s animal control or city pound) is overflowing with cats/kittens (it is kitten season).  Euthanasia is at an alarming rate to make room for more.  You can help stop this by fostering a cat or litter. BARC doesn’t want to keep litters because it takes several weeks for them to be big enough to spay/neuter and adopt out.

Your bathroom or laundry room could save lots of tiny lives.  If it’s a nursing litter, the momma cat will do most of the work.  All you need to provide is a safe spot and some food and water.

I was at BARC last weekend and saw at least 4 momma cats with nursing litters (that’s after I pulled 3 litters myself).  I also saw several litters of bigger kittens that were eating on their own but still too small to spay/neuter.  They all REALLY need to get out ASAP as they are at risk.

I also saw several adult cats with upper respiratory infections (URI).  This is like a human cold… sneezing, runny eyes.  It’s pretty easy to treat and the animal is good as new in 7-10 days. But, something like URI is a reason for animals to be killed. If you could take a sick kitty until he/she gets well, it will literally save his/her life.

PLEASE CONSIDER FOSTERING TODAY.  It will truly save lives.

I will be at BARC this morning (Sat) from about 11:30-1:30.  If you would like to come to BARC during that time, I will help you thru the foster process. My cell number is below.

 

 

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

 

PLEASE FORWARD AND CROSS POST THIS MESSAGE.

Thanks

Bett
