For those of you that have been keep in up with our threads on the Olney, Illinois kittens....they are doing great. They all have amazing personalities. There are two that are coughing and sneezing now. I am trying to come up with the funds to take them to the vet. Hence, the purpose of this thread.

For those that do not know the story, here is a briefing....

On Thursday, August 17th I took a four hour drive to Olney, Illinois to rescue (originally) eight kittens from a county pound. They were to be euthanized on Wed. the 16th, but with much persuassion and begging, the manager of the pound agreed to hold them one more day. In the bunch of babies was a pure white deaf male kitten...he was the main focus of the recue. Alot of people from PT pulled together and donated funds to Reach Out Rescue, NFP for the trip and rescue. Thank you to all of you. When we arrived at the pound, there were twelve in total. I could not leave the other four. The mess they made in their crates on the way home was unbeilvable! This is why they are called The Lil' Dirty Dozen! Name given by another PT member. Well three days later, here they are, still very messy kitties!! But they are all so sweet.

Reach Out Rescue, NFP is soley not for profit and we are now in need of funds to get them vaccinated, spayed/neutered, FIV/FELV tested, and to cure a few coughs and sneezes. The total for all the kittens bills is about $485.00 USD.

Please help us so we can get these babies adopted as soon as possible. We have more kitties then we have hands, so volunteers are also appreciated. If you are in the area of Hometown, Illinois, please send us an email at: [email protected]
