George's FundSpay/Neuter help for New Mexico nonprofits
A few years ago, we received a generous bequest from the estate of a Michigan couple who spent over ten years caring for a feral porch-cat named George. In 2002, they were moving to a retirement community and needed successor care for him. So, we moved him into our former sanctuary’s small show-and-tell feral cat colony.
In honor of George and his caregivers who loved him so dearly, we are using their bequest to cover the occasional request for our help that falls outside of our formal programs yet is still in keeping with our basic mission. Through this fund we can say “yes” to some of the more compelling cases we would otherwise turn away. And this is something we know that George, a cat who lived between the lines himself, and his caregivers would support.
“This is the story of George, the feral cat who was fed and housed on our front porch. Not being able to approach or handle him, we were reluctant to bring him indoors. But he spent his summers and winters in the cat house we built for him.”—Margaret • Chelsea, MI
