Ollie's Place needs help!

A regular sponsor has pulled out leaving them in an unsteady situation. They have a good web site and a quick and easy paypal donation button.

Brook from Ollie's Place says :

"Dear Friends,

As some of you may or may not know, I have been volunteering for a cat adoption center called Ollie's Place for the past few months. The shelter serves as a no-kill, not-for-profit rescue organization, housing homeless cats in New York City and overseeing the care and adoption of them. Ollie's Place is run solely from donations and volunteers. All funds go towards rent, vet bills, food and supplies.

Unfortunately, over the past few weeks, a major sponsor has backed out which leaves the shelter in an extremely vulnerable position. It's a pretty urgent situation so, for the time being, each volunteer is letting the word out to friends asking for small donations which can be made on-line. Anything as little as $10 can go a long way so if you get a chance, please take a look at the website and go to the "get involved" section.

Volunteering there has been a great oulet for me lately since I love animals but am not ready to get a pet. Centers such as these are crucial for not only fostering cats and finding them homes but to control the population of strays in the city. This hopefully will get us back on track so this will probably be the last mass email I'll have to send. If anyone is interested in more information, programs and events, please let me know. It means a lot!"
