Bowling for kittiesOhio Alleycat Resource Hosts Annual Bowl-a-thon Saturday August 4 2012

If you follow our blog, you know we've got particular love for an area non-profit, Ohio Alleycat Resource & Spay/Neuter Clinic.  These folks absolutely ROCK!  150 cats already adopted out this year and the number is growing fast!

When we were "found" by more cats after reaching our maximum capacity, O.A.R. took the three kittens and adopted them out!  We still get updates on Copy Cat via the adopting family's Facebook page :)

O.A.R. is a no-kill shelter, and as you can guess, they're never at a lack of work or a lack of cats to adopt out.  They do tremendous work offering low cost spay/neuter jobs, training for trap/neuter/release programs (fixing the problem by "fixing" the kitties).  They've got volunteers who take care of the kitties at the shelter, foster care, weekends at Petsmart doing on the spot adoptions and much more.

 

And you can bet this costs money, Foster kittensand money is always in short supply.  And finances didn't get helped when some _________ (unprintable description that would violate FCC rules) stole their AC unit during the peak of a heat wave.  There were donations, and some great publicity by the local TV station, but $2500 to replace the AC is a lot of lost cat food and opportunity.



So how can you help?  O.A.R. is hosting a bowl-a-thon this Saturday August 4th at Stone Lanes in Norwood (3746 Montgomery Rd) from 7-10 p.m.  $20 covers your bowling, shoe rental, etc.  There will also be raffles, door prizes and refreshments.

Whether you bowl more gutterballs than strikes doesn't matter, you can help raise funds by getting sponsors and rolling the ball down the alley!  Get sponsors for a flat fee, or per pin!  Click Thunder Alley Bowl-a-thon to download registration, pledge form and contact information.  Emily of O.A.R. is running point on this event, you can reach her at 513.505.4113 or email emily@ohioalleycat.org.  With 28 lanes to fill, they've got a spot for you!

UPDATE:   Anyone wanting to donate can do so by clicking on the OAR link at the top.  If you'd like your donation to be specifically to the bowl-a-thon, please mail to us at P.O. Box 794 Mason OH 45040 with checks made out to Ohio Alleycat Resource.  Please provide us a return address to mail your receipt so the IRS will be happy with your deduction claim!  We (and the kitties) appreciate your assistance!

Hi, Bliz...I will definitely call them and use them as a resource. You know the old saying...if we all do a little, we can do a lot. Good for you taking in so many cats. Our house is like that, too.

Shannon, We've added our two names to the participants.  Our bowling arms are pretty rusty!  Been about 4-5 years since we bowled league, will have to see if we can get the hook hitting the pocket again :)

Debbie, No doubt, it's a recipe to make a difference.

Loreena, These folks do amazing work.  The cat shelter is at capacity unfortunately, so anything that helps them raise funds to adopt them out faster means they can help more cats find good homes, or at least work the TNR programs that reduces the feral cat colony populations.

Hi Bliz, You know I am an avid bowler, and I would be the first to register for this event this Saturday. It's a very worthy cause to support the shelter for cats and kitties in your area.

Jerry, Our bowling arms are WAY out of practice.  I used to bowl a straight ball, finally converted to a hook back when we bowled league, but haven't thrown in so long I'm not expecting great results.  Will just have to make up for it in quantity of games thrown rather than score per game :)

BLiz: Not only a good opportunity to go and adopt a cat but also to help out by donating so they can keep the doors open.

I love hearing of those success stories of animals finding their forever homes.  I only wish I had the space I had in Vegas to have my 4 dogs.  Right now one cat and one dog is enough for small Manhattan spaces.

We need that here. I have been in deep water because of cats/kittens dumped off at my place. No one to take them, nothing. You are very blessed, and so are those kitties!!!

Anita, It's a win-win for the bowlers and the organization.  Hopefully they raise much more than the goal.

Jennifer, We got good news after posting this, one of the two kittens we just fostered has been adopted.  The Siamese in the picture is spoken for.  Now just his brother to go :)

Andrea, The drive by dumpings have been how we have most of ours.  Dead end country road is apparently prime for those too unwilling or unable to do the right thing by their pets.

Rich just rescued an abandoned cat from the basement in one of our rental properties... The poor little guy was nearly dead and so thin... Four months later he rules our home and we just love him to pieces... He is the first cat we every had so we have no way of knowing if they are all like Tom but we know for sure that we and our dogs love him...  Yeah Rich!!!

Great post as always...

Beth, Every one of them has a unique personality.  Some are aloof, others are like puppies, hanging around and wanting all the attention they can get.  Thakns for saving that cat :)
