Friday, June 9, 2017

Hang on to your hat--it's going to be a crazy weekend. Tomorrow is our FFRC surgery date. We have approximately 8-10 cats to spay/neuter. Plus physicals plus some public coming in that we want to help with their cats.

And today, Saturday and Sunday is our Concession Days with the Dance Recital. Tonight and tomorrow morning are the rehearsals and the dance performances are Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon. A very busy 3 days for this. 

Thanks to all the volunteers helping with the surgery day and the concessions--it takes alot of people to make these events happen.

Wow--can you imagine 78,855 votes? That is simply amazing and a whole lot of votes! I thank you for each and every one of those votes!  YOU have made this possible. We are awaiting official word that we came in second place!  SaveARescue will be starting a new contest again soon. My wish is that for this next contest, FFRC plays a back seat. Please....put your vote on your second favorite pet rescue! Thanks.

My jitters are starting to come---we have only 16 days to Catathon. Oh my---it's getting closer! Please remember that it helps us if you pre-register! This saves time on the phone when you place your bid! The link is:    You can also go to our website at and get all the information on Catathon--the rounds, the baskets and all the items involved, along with a picture and description! 

Here are some of the things we hope to accomplish with the Catathon:
Lights under walkway--very dark there
4-4 foot resin tables
6 big recycle containers
Window in Dog Room--Camvi wants some natural light!
Screen In the Porch
Liability Insurance due
Cement pad under the Covies jungle gym
Cement pad inside the Feeding Station
Fence to protect visitors on farm yard--very important due to Mercy's blindness
Insulate Firehouse for the cats
Operational cost needs--much needed

We have 4 more ferals that have been trapped, thanks to Mary Braid.  A mama (who actually is fairly friendly) and 3 kittens that are indeed feral. This family will be making a trip to HumaneOhio where they will be spayed/neutered and then placed on a farm that has already been approved. Thanks Mary for helping this family. 

Happy day to you all. Know that each of you are appreciated by FFRC!
