Readers Say Thanks

I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank the following for helping to make our Street Cat Coalition Winter Rummage sale on Jan. 21 such a fun and successful fundraiser. These generous businesses and organizations include: the Rifle United Methodist/Presbyterian Church, Winchester West Mini-Storage, Rifle Domino’s Pizza, New Castle City Market, the Garfield County Landfill, the Post Independent, The Citizen Telegram and KMTS radio.

I would also like to thank Colorado Animal Rescue Inc. (CARE) for its enlightened vision and leadership that continues to support the humane efforts of our trap/neuter/release program for stray and feral cats in Garfield County. As a result of their assistance, the Street Cat Coalition was able to spay and neuter over 250 stray and feral cats last year, thus averting an untold number of kittens that would have been born homeless this spring.

Lastly, I would like to thank all those countless individuals that donated items for the sale and gave so unselfishly of their own time and effort. The cat overpopulation problem of our county is not a “cat problem,” it is a “people problem,” and I am happy to live in an area where so many compassionate individuals are willing to help improve the lives of these endearing creatures.
