Nine Lives Greece – Οι Εφτάψυχες

Cordelia Madden-Kanellopoulou is one of the co-founders of Nine Lives Greece – Οι Εφτάψυχες, which is a group of like-minded volunteers with experience in animal welfare, who decided to start the rescue organization due to the lack of any other charity in Athens focused on the well-being of the city’s innumerable stray cats.

Blog the Change for Animals – Rescue Roundup #BtC4A

1-Blog-the-Change.pngBlog the Change for Animals is something new to me, but I’ve recently learned that it is a quarterly opportunity for bloggers to post about an animal-related cause that is near and dear to that blogger’s heart. I think this is just fantastic!

Change One Life

The rescue does not re-home any of the cats. 99% of the cats were once in homes, but then they were left behind and Continue reading “Change One Life”

Avalo Cat Sanctuary

Avalo Cat SanctuaryMichelle Donlick founded Avalo Cat Sanctuary in January 2010. Based in South Carolina, the 501(c)3 sanctuary covers all of the United States, but focuses mostly in the Southeast region. What makes Avalo Cat Sanctuary unique is that they take in domesticated hybrids and small exotic felines that have particular needs, require medical attention, or can simply no longer remain with their human guardian for whatever reason. The sanctuary takes in domestic cats as well.

Mission statement: To make the world a better place for cats through Continue reading “Avalo Cat Sanctuary”
