11/21/22: UPDATE! Woooohoooooo!!! A lot of little businesses can make a big difference! $10,000 went to Catsbury Park to help rescue, rehab, and re-home cats. We had the honor and excitement of being a contributor 😀 Catsbury Park posted on Facebook: "This grant will be used for renovations for our expansion... We want to sincerely thank Sally and her entire team at Mission Meow, as well as all of the businesses and donors involved with making this grant happen for us. We could not do any of what we do without support like this. We appreciate all of you tremendously..."
Some good news! 😻
Love & Above Cat Club is happy to announce that we're one of the Business Partners in a brand new organization called Mission Meow.
Mission Meow launched just this week!
They're connecting cat-loving small businesses with each other, so that together, we can make big contributions to feline centric nonprofits.
It's a way for small businesses like us to make a bigger impact through our donations.
It's a win for small nonprofits.
It's a win for the cats they help.
And so it's a win for cat lovers like all of us!
That's a lot of winning!
Our very first benefiting nonprofit
This October 2022, we are helping Catsbury Park.
That's right, Catsbury Park.
As in Greetings from Asbury Park, NJ, that classic first album by Bruce "The Boss" Springsteen.
Not long ago, Catsbury Park had to close and abandon their first cat adoption lounge because of COVID-19.
But after managing to relocate, this 501(c)3 organization is now endeavoring to expand!
And through Mission Meow, we're able to be a part of making it happen!
Catsbury Park will be receiving approximately $10,000 to help expand their services!
The goal is to help them double their space, with a larger adoption lounge, a medical isolation space, an office, and onsite storage.
All because of Mission Meow and their many Business Partners – 50 and counting!
The launch party for Mission Meow is set for Oct. 15 at Catsbury Park's new location in New Jersey.
There'll be snacks and beverages, fun shopping, cat adoptions, and raffle baskets.
The raffle basket we're contributing includes:
- CALM Set
- Lavender Comfort Heart
- Pink Velvet Rosebud Collar
- Cat Nap Mat
- ...and we added in a catnip cat toy, too, which is not for sale on our shop
Hope it brightens your day to know that "the Love & Above way" is still alive and well out there, helping cats, and hopefully helping you, too.
