Furry Hearts Rescue

On Monday evening, I had the opportunity to take photographs of a really great event, the 1st Annual Broadway Furry Hearts Rescue Ball.

Furry Hearts Rescue is a 510(c)3 non-profit organization based in my town.  With the support of the local township they have implemented a TNVY (Trap, Neuter, Vaccinate, Return) program to reduce the town’s feral cat population.  Furry hearts also provides medical care to abandoned and homeless cats and dogs and has found foster and permanent homes for neglected animals. They rely solely on donations and the generous support of its volunteers and take donations from crates, pet food, litter or monetary gifts.

Our town is filled with Broadway stars and many of them came out for the evening to sing for the benefit. Each one of them sang a song that they either wrote for their pet or sing to their pet.
Everything for the event was donated and from what I have heard, it raised close to $11,000!  It is now the hope that this will become an annual event.
This is a link about the event and some of the talented performers who donated their time to help raise money for the organization.

    I’ve been doing TNR (trap,neuter,return) for twelve years and have brought in 740 cats to date. The proud caretaker of 17 cats where I live and 12 feeding stations split between the industrial and residential areas in the town of Hayward, Ca., where I live. I feed close to one hundred cats a day and keep an eye on my colonies so there is zero growth. All cats trapped are ear tipped, vaccinated, wormed, flea free and most are micro chipped so should they be re-trapped and brought into the shelter, they are scanned and returned to live out their lives as a feral cat in their colony.
