Please help abused animals win $25,000 from Pepsi

I am sorry for posting this again, but the cat rescue is not doing so well in the Pepsi Refresh Grant contest.  We went from being ranked #215 all the way down to #416!  We need to be in the top 10 to win the $25,000.  Please vote every day and spread the word to everyone on your blog and email list.  This is truly a worthy cause and thousands of animals have been saved over the years because of the hard work and dedication of Kings Highway Cat Rescue.  So, in an effort to get some much needed votes, I am reposting my Monday post.


I am thrilled to let you know that the animal rescue where I volunteer has been chosen to be a part of the Pepsi Refresh Project! Please vote them EVERY DAY and ask your friends and family to vote also. PLEASE, SPREAD THE WORD!  The stray, abused and unwanted animals of Brooklyn need your help!

Kings Highway Cat Rescue, is in the running to win a $25,000 grant which will help them pay for the expenses that were incurred when they rescued 64 cats from an animal hoarder. To cast your vote, please go to:

Voting ends the last day of this month so there's no time to lose!  Please vote today and every day until the end of the month.

Kings Highway Cat Rescue (K.H.C.R) is a no-kill, non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue of sick, abused and unwanted animals. They have been sheltering and caring for cats since 1988 and due to an overwhelming demand, expanded their operation to include the rescue of dogs. They do not receive any government subsidies and survive solely on the funds that are received through donations and fund raisers. At K.H.C.R. each animal is provided with food, shelter and veterinary care (including spaying/neutering) until a caring adoptive home is found. For feral cats that cannot be domesticated, they maintain a spay/neuter release program. Although they are a cat and dog rescue, they do not turn away any animal and have rescued rabbits, ducks, crows, squirrels, possums and even a goat!

In addition to their struggle to control the number of stray/abused animals, they have been faced with a new challenge. As we are all aware, there has been a tremendous amount of layoffs and foreclosures due to the state of the economy. As such, people are forced to make sacrifices in an attempt to continue to feed their families, avoid eviction and, stay on top of their mounting bills. One such sacrifice these desperate individuals make is to bring their beloved pets to an animal shelter. During these tough economic times families have been surrendering their pets in record numbers because they simply cannot afford to feed them. Animal shelters are already filled to capacity so the end result for most of these pets is euthanasia.

In an attempt to address this heartbreaking situation, K.H.C.R. has established two pet food banks. The food bank provides each family with the necessary food to keep their pets healthy, happy and just as important…in their loving homes.

Please help this wonderful organization by casting your vote. Every vote counts so again, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!!
