It seems like yesterday I was writing our first “end of the year” blog … and here we are again already.
The end of the year is always a nice time for reflection. To take stock and, most importantly, count our blessings. Adopters, Volunteers, Board Members, Donors, FaceBook & Twitter friends – we thank you immensely. The following list would not have been possible without ALL of YOU!
Karma Cat + Zen Dog 2011 recap:
157 cats adopted
- 31 community cats (ferals) trapped, neutered (& vaccinated), and returned (TNR-ed!)
That’s 222 cats SAVED!
- 2 awesome adoption centers
- 42 regular volunteers and fosters
- 1 Hurricane that made a ginormous mess of Central NJ
- 3,340 lbs of cat litter
- 24 large bags of cat food for the adoption centers
- 60 cases of wet cat food for the adoption centers
- countless loads of laundry … we’d keep better track but it would be too depressing from an environmental standpoint
- 280 Clavamox pills used (antibiotic for the common upper respiratory infection)
- 21 kittens/cats treated for ringworm … ringworm should be one of those “four-letter-words”
- 97 visits to our veterinarians … the larger the font, the more visits that kitty had to make (list does not include spay/neuter surgeries or cats seen by veterinarians courtesy of other organizations/people)
- 67 spay/neuter surgeries not including TNR surgeries (note: some cats are already spayed/neutered when they come to us)
- 4 sets of X-rays on 3 cats
- 1 cat with minimal function of his back legs – until we got him fixed up
- 1 kitten with FeLV and FIV
- 1 cat with two injured legs – one of which will need amputation
I thought about including a few pictures from this year, but seeing the names of all the cats that you helped us save speaks volumes.
Did you know that 2012 is a leap year? What will you do with your extra day? Donate some cash? Donate time volunteering at our adoption centers? Donate lots of time by fostering? Whatever it is, we know we are in good company … wishing you the best for 2012!
