Dear Amy and Especially for Pets Staff,

First, I would like to apologize for the delay in sending this thank you letter. It has been an extremely busy time for us, as explained below.

On June 20th we began working with a cat hoarder who had 35 adult cats and 40 kittens. Our volunteers and I removed 45 kittens beginning on July 1st, the final 6 leaving just three weeks ago. Two of the kittens J.P. and K.C. had such severe eye infections they each required an emergency eye enucleation. Had it not been for the generous gift given to us by Especially for Pets, as your first quarter nail clipping recipient, these surgeries would have financially drained our organization.

Hi Amy--
My name is Ann Fratesi and I work with Animal Relief and Rescue Fellowship (ARRF) in Leland, Mississippi. Highway is being cared for by our group.  I wanted to thank you sooooooooooooooo very, very much for the wonderful CARE PACKAGE that you sent him. We helped him open it day before yesterday and he was absolutely beside himself!!! I got pictures but cannot send them due to a computer problem. Just as soon as it is fixed, I will be sending them on to you. He was so amazed by everything. He has probably never had a toy in his life.  He immediately grabbed the big fuzzy bone and started jumping around with it. We had to take it away from him so he would see the rest of his surprises.
