Kitty Connection, an all-volunteer nonprofit dedicated to rescuing and finding safe, loving homes for local cats and dogs, will hold an Online Spring Silent Auction from 8 a.m. Friday, April 30 through 8 p.m. Monday, May 3 at www.myminiauction.com/kittyconnection.
“Just in time for Mother’s Day, Kitty Connection’s Spring Silent Auction is a convenient way to find unique gifts for all the mothers and other special people in your life while supporting local pets in need,” Kitty Connection President Marie Mazzeo said. “Our February online auction raised $2,700 in one weekend and we are hoping our spring event will top that – providing much-needed funding to care and provide homes for the many cats, dogs and other companion animals we rescue and foster every day.”
Kitty Connection volunteers rescued over 700 cats and several dogs last year, many in need of major medical care. The organization provides critical high-cost medical care, including surgeries, for 30 to 50 cats annually, and provides funds for low-cost medical care to 30 to 50 adopters following adoption of their pets. Volunteers provide foster homes for animals until they are adopted, and Kitty Connection ensures that pets are spayed/neutered, tested for common illnesses, and vaccinated prior to adoption.
In addition, Kitty Connection runs a low-cost spay/neuter program for pet owners in need and provides education and outreach in the community about the importance of responsible pet ownership. The organization anticipates restarting its feral cat trap/neuter/return program when it’s safe for volunteers, after the pandemic has subsided.
Dozens of items will be up for bid during the Online Spring Silent Auction will allow bidders, including themed baskets and other gifts perfect for Mother’s Day. Auction items will appear on the auction website, along with guidelines and policies, at the auction start time (8 a.m. Friday, April 30). Please direct any questions to [email protected].
