We at Love 4 Cats & Trapping Rescue, Inc. have a devastating crisis on our hands for our remarkable 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and we asking you to help us save the house for the rescue.
Liz Cordero, President of Love 4 Cats (https://loveforcats.org/) is in jeopardy of losing the rescue’s house because the owner of the property and Liz's dedicated rescue partner, Peter Potorski, died unexpectedly of a pre-existing heart condition in his sleep at only 63 years old on October 22nd.
Liz and Peter worked tirelessly side-by-side together. This dynamic duo spearheaded this non-profit rescue organization, creating not only a sanctuary for rescued cats but also a special place to get them ready for adoption. At any given time, you could find up to 40 cats being housed and protected from the elements under Peter and Liz's care. The house was purchased by Peter specifically for the rescue and interior custom work was done to support the rescue effort.
There is an infirmary where they personally cared for injured, feral and abandoned cats recovering from surgery. Often times they provided round the clock care for cats too sick to eat who required hand feeding to recover. Every cat requiring medical care received daily monitoring until they made a complete recovery. In addition to the sanctuary and infirmary, Peter and Liz provided a homelike setting with freedom for the cats and entertainment while they waited for their forever homes. This customized space is the perfect environment for the rescue, rehabilitation and safe adoption of homeless cats. No other place exists in this area like it.
Over 6,000 homeless cats have been saved, vetted and received medical attention through Love for cats trap, neuter, return (TNR) and foster programs. They current location is were rescued cats and kittens begin their path to a better life, whether that be returning to an existing colony after medical attention and spay/neuter or through adoption into a forever home. So it’s some thing here about the population and what would happen if feral weren’t fixed.
The house is divided to include a separate area for our trap-neuter-return feral cats to reside until they are released. It also contains a designated infirmary space that provides our injured, feral and abandoned cats a safe space to recover from surgery. Some are too sick to eat and require round-the-clock attention and hand-feeding to aid the healing process. Every cat requiring medical care receives daily monitoring until they make a complete recovery.
In addition to the TNR space and infirmary, Peter customized the rescue’s interior and property to provide a home-like setting that provides the cats both freedom and enrichment while awaiting their forever homes. This customized space is the perfect environment for the rehabilitation and safe adoption of homeless cats. No other place exists like it in the area.
