Current Nail Clipping Charity
The Cat Connection (TCC) is a successful, non-profit, 501 (c)(3) cat rescue organization operating as a network of foster homes and feral colony managers. TCC has been active for 17 years, serving over 5,000 cats and nine communities in eastern Middlesex County. It is supported by more than 175 dedicated volunteers. More than 90% of the money TCC raises goes directly to the cost of the cats, including the cost of food, basic supplies, and medical care. The Cat Connection provides services including foster and adoption, and financial and behavioral aid. In addition to financial aid, they also provide guidance in solving cat behavioral problems and support for families wanting to provide excellent care for their cat. An important goal of The Cat Connection is to keep families together.
The money raised during this fundraiser will support veterinary care for senior cats that often take a bit longer to find a forever home and for financial assistance for low income families with veterinary expenses.
Stop by and meet volunteers and find out about their foster care and adoption programs. See our Events calendar for scheduled dates.
