Some travel
Holding the cat till someone can come
Going to a kill shelter to save a kit till someone can rehome it.

I would need a little notice for travel as I have 7 children and would need to put care for them into place.

General area where you live:
north texas, near DFW metroplex

What things you would be willing to do to help a cat rescue:
transport, VERY temporary rehoming [would have to be in the bathroom, quite a small room.]

Are you willing to travel and if so, how far?:
up to 2 hours roundtrip

Any other thoughts about rescuing or any limitations:
gas money contributions by the adopter would be appreciate, altho not required, by any means.
i live in a small 927 sq. ft. home w/5 resident cats. the only rooms w/doors are the bathroom & the laundry [which is off limits to kitties ]. therefore, rehoming, even temporarily, is limited to keeping the cat in my bathroom, which is just large enough for the tub, toilet & vanity/sink area... not bad for a kitten, size-wise, but way too small for an adult for any length of time.

loan a trap/help with trapping

...doesn't hurt to ask about anything

General area where you live: Lee's Summit/Kansas City, MO
What things you would be willing to do to help a cat rescue:
  • Foster kittens and cats (5 at a time, for up to a year)
  • Hand-raise/bottle feed kittens
  • Transport supplies
  • Transport animals to fosters/vet/etc
  • Collection donations/promotion
  • Post ads (newspaper, online, etc)
  • Write up adoption contract(s), find homes

General area where you live: Suburban Maryland (Prince George's County) around Andrews Air Force Base

What things you would be willing to do to help a cat rescue: Collaborate through the organization I work with, Prince Georges Feral Friends, SPCA. Teach about advocating for animal issues. Help with forming and building small organizations to find local resources and leverage them for cats.

Are you willing to travel and if so, how far?: Within an hour of Washington DC generally, but this is negotiable, for me.

Any other thoughts about rescuing or any limitations:I believe that what we badly need today is leaders, who learn by doing and then pass it on so no one is overwhelmed. And working in a good group is a lot more fun than going it alone!

post #40 of 47
General area where you live:
Clarksville TN, Northwest corner of Tennessee. Near Oak grove and Hapkinsville Kentucky

What things you would be willing to do to help a cat rescue:
Bottle feed
Minor first aid
Pick up/trap ferals
Overnight fostering (weekend max)
Travel to rehome feline companions

Are you willing to travel and if so, how far?:
Limited travel options, can't go more thanabout 100 mile radius UNLESS it's to south alabama to which I make about four trips a year, and could make a drop off or pick up part of my trip. Oklahoma is a maybe, since I sometimes make trips there as well.

Any other thoughts about rescuing or any limitations:
Financially limited. Also, I live in an apartment, so I can't take rescues for more than a few nights, except for ones that can be SAFELY limited to one room, such as young bottle-feeding kittens.

CarolPetunia AMAZINGLY GOOD IDEA!

I really can get behind this.

No. Va, willing to foster kittens 5 to 12 wks.
someone else would have to take over to place
at that point, that's the huge problem that i have.

I am overwhelmed with caring for cats, so I've no
time for placing, not to mention easy access to
a Petsmart Adoption Clinic...you have to have a group
behind you to do that.

Anythoughts or suggestions on how to get that off
the ground would be great.

So would help getting an FIV+ SHOWING site, where
these wonderful cats could be shown to the public
and the public could be educated about the misconceptions
they have of the disease. NO reason these cat's should
not have the same adoptablity that others have?

But this is a great idea for the smaller one or
two rescues per year person - help with the fostering.

Right now, our Humane Society is struggling to
find fosters. The problem? IMHO they take
forever to approve, are VERY VERY strict (overly
so IMHO) and they turn people away who would
do only 1 or 2 litters a year.

They want "year round"
committment. IMHO this means folks who would
help out don't due to lack of time... but they COULD
be very valuable resources....

Thoughts anyone?
