For as long as I know my friend Terri and that's more than 10 years, she's been a dedicated volunteer with City Critters. Terri and her fellow volunteers run the City Critters booths at NYC street fairs and fundraising events such as Broadway Barks. Getting the word out and getting homes for homeless kitties young and old is only one part of what this volunteer group does. Fostering is another part of the equation. Adoptable cats are shown at several Manhattan Petco locations and the volunteers assist the cats in putting their best paw forward to prospective pet parents as well as clean the cages, feed, play with and monitor the cats.
This wonderful not-for-profit group of dedicated animal lovers has done marvelous work rescuing many felines from a life on the streets of New York. During 2014 City Critters will celebrate its 20-year anniversary. That's two decades of helping furry New Yorkers! If you want to help City Critters continue their good work and you have a soft spot for animals who have had a hard life consider donating - your time, money or essentials to make life easier for these cats and some dogs too!
