In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and its devastating effects on the nonprofit community, #GivingTuesday has announced #GivingTuesdayNow, set to take place on May 5, 2020. #GivingTuesdayNow is a day dedicated to global giving and unity and is designed to bring communities together and help mitigate the damages done to nonprofits as a result of the coronavirus shutdown.
Alley Cat Rescue is still operating during this shutdown with employees working from home. However, ACR is also still out in the field, ensuring that all its colonies are fed and taken care of. Additionally, ACR is still rescuing kittens from the streets, providing them medical attention, fostering them, and finding them loving forever homes. ACR is in need of food, medical equipment, as well as financial aid for medical bills and other costs, to continue this life saving work. On May 5th, please consider donating to ACR in honor of #GivingTuesdayNow and help us continue our mission of providing compassionate, humane, and nonlethal care to cats and kittens across the world.

Our #GivingTuesdayNow Stories, Made Possible by You
Chickpea was rescued by ACR when she was less than a week old. Her eyes weren't even open, and she had been orphaned on the streets. She was fighting an infection on her umbilical cord and parasites. Initially she struggled to latch on to the bottle when fed, but she soon got the hang of it thanks to her loving and attentive foster family. She is now one month old and making tremendous progress. Her care was made possible thanks to your ongoing support.
Our lovely boy Figaro who lost his leg due to a leg-hold trap could not be any sweeter. He has adapted to three legs beautifully and is healing well. Figaro’s whole foot was cut off from the ankle, sliced right through the bone. He then limped around on that stump, breaking the skin and causing infection and bleeding. If he had not been rescued his outlook would have been very bleak. ACR rescued him from the shelter and took him immediately to our veterinarian for treatment and leg amputation. ACR uses our Compassion Fund for needy cats to pay the vet bills.
While picking up feral cats from a shelter, ACR were approached by a man that had tried to drop off two kittens at the building. However, the shelter was shut. He had found them outside a store on his lunch hour and could not return them back to that location. We took the kittens from the man, provided them with medical attention, and accepted them into our foster program. None of this would have been possible without your generous donations to our Compassion Fund.
Alley Cat Rescue is committed to helping stray and outdoor community cats across the United States and around the world, by promoting humane, nonlethal care to improve cats’ lives. We work closely with animal control agencies, government officials and colony caretakers to build community partnerships and resolve conflicts so that TNR programs can succeed in reducing the number of cats killed in shelters.
