Kitten season is here and we need your help!

Dear Friends of the Branford Compassion Club:

Kitten season is here and we need your help! Although the kittens are adorable, the large numbers of moms and babies coming into our shelter, places a great financial burden on our already limited resources!

Each Momma Cat and kitten needs to be vaccinated and neutered or spayed, greatly increasing our veterinary bills over the next few months! We also experience an increased expense, that is supply related – food, litter and cleaning, etc.!

How can you help support these adorable babies and their moms?

DONATE NOW
Make your donation to the Branford Compassion Club here via Paypal using your debit or credit card (or your Paypal account). You may make a one-time donation, or click on “Make this a monthly donation” to make a recurring payment.

Or send a check to:

P.O. Box 768

We need your support to make sure we can continue our mission to neuter, vaccinate, test and provide medical intervention for every feline that passes through our doors!

Thank you!

Branford Compassion Club Honors Moms with Mama Meow Benefit Buffet May 9

Branford Compassion Club loves moms so much that it’s giving them a chance to get wined and dined twice during Mother’s Day week with its Mama Meow Italian Buffet benefit, 6 p.m. Thursday, May 9 at Pompeo’s Restaurant, 485 W. Main St.

Doors open at 5:30 for the yummy event, which includes a silent auction, a raffle for a Dooney & Bourke handbag, some delectable edibles for Mother’s Day gift-giving and cash bar.

Tickets are $35, available by email at bccspecialevents32@gmail.com or by calling 203-444-0653. A limited amount will be sold at the door. Tickets are also available Saturdays from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at BCC’s Feline Rescue and Adoption Center, 2037 Foxon Road, North Branford.

Proceeds benefit the nonprofit which cares for area homeless felines both in its North Branford facility, and in several area colonies, where BCC volunteers feed ferals deemed unadoptable. All food, medicine, supplies and veterinary bills for both the shelter and colony cats are funded through the generosity of those who donate or support BCC fundraisers which include bake sales, a Comedy Night, tag sale, the annual Animal Awareness Day on the Branford Green and other events.

Mother’s Day appropriately falls during the kitten season. But kittens are just a small part of the mission. The rescue stories are never ending no matter what the season. The reasons homeless feline moms and kittens come to be at the shelter are both heartwarming and heart-wrenching. It is BCC’s mission to find forever homes for these feline residents, who are cared for by BCC’s 80 dedicated volunteers.

To date, more than 1,800 cats have been adopted out of the shelter. That’s in addition to those for whom homes were found before the shelter opened in 2011.

Branford Compassion Club was founded in 1997 by a group of cat lovers as a grassroots organization to address the town’s homeless cat population. It was based on trap-neuter-release, which remains its foundation. After trapping, those felines deemed adoptable are taken to the shelter, while the others are returned to an area colony, where they are cared for daily by BCC volunteers.

BCC is open Saturdays from 11 a.m.- 3 p.m. at 2037 Foxon Road, North Branford, (203-483-6369). Volunteers are always needed. For more information, visit the website at www.branfordcompassionclub.org, or stop by in person. Send questions to contact_us@branfordcompassionclub.org.
