Monadnock cat shelter raising money for a new and 'purr-fect' home
JAFFREY - A cat rescue organization is hoping to raise money for a new home for the stray and abandoned cats they care for.
According to the Keene Sentinel, Monadnock Kitty Rescue & Adoption needs about $500,000 for the move to a new building down the road from their old. Heidi Bourgeois, who runs the nonprofit shelter, says the move is necessary because the owner of their current building at 11 Plantation Drive wants to reclaim the space.
The shelter has raised $100,000 since last August and must make the total by December. If they are unable to raise the funds, Kitty Rescue will have to close, Bourgeois said.
“This will have a huge impact on the future of the stray, abandoned and feral cats in the area as no one else houses them until they are adopted or in most cases for life,” she said.
Currently, the shelter houses over 100 cats and she hopes to adopt out as many as possible before the move.
Anyone interested in making a donation can go the the shelter's GoFundMe page.
