Since we’re changing our focus to cats today, we couldn’t think of a more appropriate feline organization to help out this month than Tabby’s Place, which is headquartered in Ringoes. Founded in 1999, Tabby’s Place is a cage-free sanctuary that provides refuge to cats in hopeless situations. Their feline residents come primarily from public shelters where they had once been scheduled for euthanasia. In addition to offering cats for adoption, Tabby’s Place also acts as a hospital and a hospice.
Adopting from a shelter is extremely rewarding and we have always gotten our cats this way. Our first cat, Big Red, was a few days away from euthanasia when we adopted him and gave him a few good years until kidney disease unfortunately ended his life. Our next cat, Iris (right), and most recent Jack (handsome black cat on the left) were also adopted from a shelter. When we got Jack, we had him microchipped at Tabby’s Place because they often host low-cost microchipping events as fundraisers.
