Hurricane Dorian Update

Meet Dory!

On Saturday morning, kitty angels brought this five-week-old sweetheart out of the swamp and into Rita's hands. Her survival--and that of many of our other Ocrakitties--has brought us great joy, though we are still grieving the loss of so many others. And before you ask, yes, she has already found a home! But if you would like to add your name to our adoption registry for the spring, when we will probably have a bumper crop of kittens since our spay/neuter clinic won't take place this fall, please click HERE.


So many of you have offered to build or buy shelters for us--thank you!!! In addition, two animal rescue organizations (see below) that have been helping us closed out their week on-island by building *10 * shelters today. If you haven't already contacted us about providing us a shelter, we ask that you hold off for now. When we have a chance to see how many we've got and how many we need, we'll let folks know if we need more. Again, thanks to everyone for their generosity!

Operation Bring Animals Home Search and Rescue & The Animal Disaster Relief Coalition

We have no words to express our gratitude to these two organizations, which have spent the past week working on behalf of the island's animals of all species, including humans. Our Facebook page has several videos showing the work Brandon, Marshall, and the other volunteers have done, and we can't imagine where we'd be without them.

We'd like to ask you to consider a donation to either (or both!) of these groups to help offset their expenses on our behalf and to enable them to assist other animals in need! Clink on the links to the left.

Amazon Wish List

We are still working on putting together an wish list, and we appreciate your patience and understanding. The on-island volunteers who are best positioned to identify our needs have just been too busy dealing with immediate matters to look at the big picture.

In the interim, we are of course happy to accept cash donations of any size via check or through PayPal (HERE), and we can certainly use gift cards to or to order supplies during the winter and spring.

And most of all, we soooo appreciate all the support you're sending our way--financial, material, and/or emotional. Thank you!
