…and it requires your help! But first, a little background.
When I started Three Chatty Cats in January this year, I had no idea what I was doing. I just knew that I loved cats, enjoyed writing and thought a blog focused on cats would be a fun thing to do. (And it is!)
But after starting the blog, I quickly realized that I was drawn to cat rescues and anyone doing their part to help cats in need – be it an entire animal rescue group, a single person doing TNR efforts, a foster parent or someone who simply rescued a cat off the street. With all of the bad in the world and all of the kitties out there suffering, I feel it’s important to highlight the good – because there is so much good out there, too – and to showcase groups and people who live their lives devoted to cats and animals in general.
My first few profiles on cat rescue groups featured out-of-state rescues. Being a blog with readers all over the world, I define out-of-state as not being local to me here in California. I have since featured a local rescue group and of course plan to continue with any that come my way.
Then it hit me. Wouldn’t it be a fun goal to feature a rescue group from every state? I certainly think so! But I’ll need your help. It’s one thing for me to do a quick internet search and find an animal rescue group, but I would love to receive your suggestions of rescues and groups to feature. Perhaps it’s a group you volunteer with or that you adopted from. Or maybe it’s a group that you simply admire. Please – don’t be shy! It might take me a while to get through all 50 states (and let’s also throw in D.C. and Puerto Rico for fun), but I’m not going anywhere. And to be clear, I want to feature any rescue that comes my way. If it’s from a state that I’ve already covered – well, I say the more the merrier.
Let’s get those suggestions rolling in! And bonus points if it’s an out-of-country rescue! Feel free to either leave a comment below or use the Contact page. I thank you kindly.
It looks like the Three Chatty Cats have some suggestions! What about you?
P.S. It doesn’t have to be a 501(c)3 group. I understand that not all rescue groups have their 501(c)3 status yet, but they’re still doing great rescue work!
Here is where I am to date. I will update the graph as I’m able to cover more states and you can follow along on the Profile Goal page.
So far, I have these states represented: Alabama, California, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, Ohio. And tomorrow, I will be able to add New York!
