It’s hard to believe.

It feels totally unreal.

We are still pinching ourselves.

But we have been operating what grown-ups would call a legally incorporated, IRS approved charity, cat rescue for ten years!

Whether we measure it in years, or the wonderful people we’ve met, or the number of cats whose lives we have saved, we are thrilled to have reached this milestone, and would like to share it with the people who have made it possible!

Please join us on October 16, from 2:00 to 4:30 at the New Mexico Bar Building, to celebrate with food, music by guitar great Michael Anthony, and other surprises! October 16 is also National Feral Cat Day, so we have extra reason to celebrate!

Help us plan our food order by buying tickets early (scroll down)!

We have a special program planned:

2:00 to 4:00: check in, share a bite to eat, enjoy the music

2:00 to 3:30: bid on silent auction items.

He has performed with Tony Bennett, Nelson Riddle, Henry Mancini, Ray Brown, Elvin Jones, and Louis Belson among many others. He is at the heart of Albuquerque’s growing Jazz scene, and is one of the warmest, most generous people we have ever met. For more about Michael, visit his web site!

Fall Food Drive!

AutumnFoodDrive2012.pdfThe days are getting shorter, the smell of roasting chili and dying leaves is in the air, and the cats want to be fed. That means it is once again time for our fall food drive!

Just take any donations of cat food, litter, paper towels or plates, or cat toys to our donations basket at VCA Montgomery. We will use these to support community cat colonies, to care for the cats in our foster house, or to help people keep their cats in their homes.

Just to make it easier, why not bring a donation with you when you come to our FREE Lecture on Feline Breathing Disorders!

Also, please download and share our flier, and when you are at VCA, please thank the wonderful people there for their generous support of our organization!

Dr. Rebecca Brahm

Does your cat wheeze, or have other problems breathing? Do they tire easily and start panting too soon when they play? These and other feline breathing problems could be a sign of deeper issues, conditions that should be treated. Please join Dr. Rebecca Brahm for her talk on Feline Breathing Issues to learn more about this vital aspect of feline health.

Dr. Rebecca Brahm received her veterinary degree from Oklahoma State University.  She then completed an Internship in Emergency Medicine and Critical Care at Louisville Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Services. After her year in Kentucky, Dr. Brahm moved to north Massachusetts to further her interests in emergency medicine, working first at Angell Animal Medical Center-West in Springfield, MA and later at New England Animal Medical Center in West Bridgewater, MA.  Dr. Brahm has a special interest in soft tissue surgery and trauma stabilization.  When not working, she enjoys international travel, visiting family and friends, and is a voracious reader.
