As part of the Be The Change Challenge, originated at the 2010 BlogPaws Conference, Paws and Effect is raising funds for the kitties at Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary in St. Pauls, North Carolina.
Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary provides a no-kill, cage-free environment for the blind cats they rescue from high-kill shelters and from people who can’t take care of them. We believe blind cats deserve the opportunity to live and get a chance at finding a forever home.
If everybody who reads Paws and Effect gives just $1, we’ll meet–and even exceed–our goal! Click on the Paws and Effect Be The Change Challenge widget in the column to the right or visit our fundraising page at FirstGiving.
If you can’t give, please spread the word. The more people who know about what we’re doing, the more money we can raise for this very worthy organization.
It costs about $800 per month to feed and provide vet care for the cats at Blind Cat Rescue. Our goal is to raise $5,000–six months’ worth of care–to support Blind Cat Rescue’s mission. Thank you for helping us to help them!
To help you learn more about what Blind Cat Rescue is doing, we’ll feature two or three photos and stories of the cats at the shelter each week. Today’s featured kitty is Abigail. Abigail was rescued by a group in Pennsylvania when a woman had 63 cats seized by animal control for neglect. They contacted Blind Cat Rescue for assistance, and two wonderful volunteers drove eight hours to bring them to Blind Cat Rescue.

What a wonderful and ambitious cause! I too am blogging for Be the Change, adding your post to the list of participants along with a description of what you’re working to achieve. Hope it helps! So awesome!
I love the rescue that you’ve chosen! Those rescues that go the extra mile to take on animals with disabilities are just amazing! The feral group I volunteer for recently got a group of 3 VERY sick cats. All were treated and are over their illness but one of them had to have his eyes removed because they had been destroyed. This is something that is brand new for our small group so we’re going to have to learn what it takes to care for a blind cat. Kudos to this rescue! I hope you reach your goal!
Hi! Thanks for stopping by my cats blog and yep, I remember meeting you. I am so enjoying seeing everyone’s Be The Challenge posts and made a little donation to your goal, too.

This is just so sweet. I’m going to drop a few dollars in the bucket right now!
Special kitties should have a special place in everyone’s hearts. :)
