Restaurant to hold fundraiser for feral cat caregivers
Bob Evans restaurant in Westlake will hold a fundraiser for The Cat Crossing on Friday, Sept. 19. On that day from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Bob Evans will donate 15 percent of dine-in and carry-out sales to the Cleveland-based nonprofit organization. A copy of the flyer found at catcrossingcleveland.org must be presented at time of payment. Cat Crossing volunteers will be on hand all day to provide information about adopting, donating or volunteering.
The Cat Crossing was established in 2012 for the care, protection and humane treatment of homeless cats, especially those that are not often considered adoptable. They take in unwanted cats and kittens, and the free-roaming sanctuary on West 25th Street provides a safe and secure place where elderly, disabled or difficult-to-place cats can live out their lives. Their mission is to provide rescue, shelter, rehabilitation, medical care and, when appropriate, adoption services for all cats that enter their facility.
As feral cat colony caregivers, every night they feed more than 100 cats at 27+ stations. In order to prevent overpopulation, Cat Crossing volunteers also trap, neuter and return (TNR) these cats to the outdoors if they are not able to be socialized.
