May’s Plant Sale Events for Animal Rescue Announced

Feline Friends logoLocal resident Diane Jacob, of The Cameron Gardens, has announced this year’s schedule of plant sale events to benefit animal rescue groups in Thurston and Mason counties. The first is this Saturday, May 1st.

“Many gardeners and volunteers,” says Jacob, “contribute time and plants from their own gardens to help our furry friends.”

“Each sale will have different plants, great prices, and probably something you, the butterflies, and hummingbirds would love in your yard.”

Masks will be required, and the hosts ask that you practice social distancing at all times during the plant sales.

All plant sales will be held, rain or shine, and 100% of proceeds benefit homeless pets.

Feline Friends Asks Community to Assist with Building a New Shelter

Feline Friends logoFounded in 2000, Feline Friends is a non-profit, volunteer-only operated, no-kill cat shelter that provides rescue, rehabilitation, medical attention and rehoming to at-risk cats in and throughout Thurston and Mason counties. Their mission is to, “provide unconditional love and care for any cat in need no matter what the circumstance may be.” Feline Friends Volunteers receive calls from Grays Harbor, Lewis, Pierce and many other counties in Washington State. They take in cats rescued from natural disasters such as the recent Oregon wildfires and they operate a trap-spay/neuter-release program for ferals in an effort to decrease unwanted breeding.

To raise funds for their new cat shelter, Feline Friends is hosting the 1st Annual Purr-fect Hearts Affair. This gala event will be held February 3, 2018 at Pellegrino’s Event Center in Tumwater. But before we can get to an evening of dinner, drinks and live music, culminating with a silent and live auction, Feline Friends is asking for donations of gifts and services from friends in the community.

Your generous donation would assist in building our new, larger facility and in turn allow us to provide our services to a greater number of cats in need. Our goal for the evening is $20,000, which would provide the necessary funding for construction, landscaping, and supplies at our new 8-acre location! In addition to service items and gift donations, we are also seeking sponsorships to help fund the event. Donors and sponsors of all levels will receive recognition for your charitable assistance with this event. For more information on how we will recognize your sponsorship or donation please click here.

If you can donate an item or service – pet sitting, tax preparation, landscaping, etc. – download a copy of the donation solicitation. If you would like your donation picked up, please contact Rebecca Reavis.

If you would like to make a financial donation, the donor/sponsorship levels may be of interest to you. Those details are on the donation solicitation, too.

If you have friends, family, or businesses that would want to help out as well, please send them a copy of the donation solicitation. Our feline friends need you.

Whether you can make a donation of goods and services or not, don’t forget to mark your calendar for the Purr-fect Hearts Affair.

Feline Friends Purr-fect Hearts Affair
February 3, 2018
6:00 PM
Pellegrino’s Event Center
5757 Littlerock Rd SW, Tumwater 98512

The evening will begin with a silent auction, Italian vegetarian buffet, and cash bar. Live music will be provided by Roger and Deb Hamilton. The live auction is hosted by Garrison Auctioneers. Each $40 ticket includes all you can eat and a beverage token. Event tickets are available online (click this link).

Thank you, neighbors, for your support of Feline Friends!
