Cat Depot, in partnership with the ASPCA® (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals ®), has announced a weekend adoption event for 150 rescued cats from Caboodle Ranch animal sanctuary. The event will be held on Saturday and Sunday, August 11 and 12, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Robarts Arena, 3000 Ringling Blvd., Sarasota. Loving cats in need of a stable environment, along with barn cats, will be available for a $10 donation.
Volunteers are critically needed to help Cat Depot Emergency Response Team (CDERT) who have deployed for three weeks to care for the cats. All cats have had veterinary checkups, are spayed/neutered, microchipped and will receive behavioral enrichment while in CDERT care.
On February 27, the ASPCA assisted in the rescue of hundreds of cats from Caboodle Ranch animal sanctuary in Lee, Florida. The ASPCA managed the removal and sheltering of hundreds of cats living in overcrowded and unsanitary conditions from the non-profit cat sanctuary.
“Their road to recovery has been a long one,” said Shelley Thayer, Executive Director of Cat Depot. “We know the citizens of Sarasota County and the surrounding areas have compassion for the downtrodden, and we are hoping they will open their hearts and their homes to these wonderful cats who deserve their love.”
Cat Depot urgently needs volunteers for August 1 thru August 16. If you can help, please contact Corey at 941 366 2404, or email [email protected]. Donations for operating costs, food, supplies and care of the cats are greatly needed and can be made at catdepot.org, or mailed to Cat Depot, 2542 17th Street, Sarasota FL, 34234.
