The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Saving our little corner of the world one cat at a time.
We are a NON-PROFIT, no-kill Cat Rescue & Placement Center located in Grand Rapids, Michigan. As we are owned and operated by a veterinarian, Dr. Jennifer Petrovich, DVM, all cats in our custody are tested for Feline Leukemia, vaccinated for Rabies, Feline Distemper, Calicivirus, Rhinotracheitis and Feline Leukemia. If old enough, all will be spayed and/or neutered. Each one is dewormed and flea- treated as well. We are staffed by diligent, hard-working, cat-loving, non-paid volunteers who do this simply because they love our feline friends. Without their tireless efforts and donations from our supporters, CRASH'S LANDING would not exist!
I recommend Crash's and Big Sid's because of the satisfaction of caring for animals people have thrown away; the pleasure of seeing sick or injured cats mend and go to loving homes where they contribute to the happiness of their humans; the enjoyment of the cats' interesting personalities; the sense of completion in supporting adopters post adoption.
It's an organization you can respect for the way it spends donor dollars--because it's volunteer-operated, every dollar goes directly to cat care; I am impressed by the truly loving care volunteers give the cats, often even when the animal may not have long to live; I'm pleased by the daily medical care when the cats need it; I'm impressed by the lengths to which our founding veterinarian will go to extend quality of life for our cats.
I also appreciate the opportunity to get acquainted with other volunteers--cat people certainly are some of the best people on the planet.
