Our Elf Fund was started in memory of a little kitten that came in years ago, right before Christmas. His paw had been crushed in a trap, while he was desperately trying to find food. Had Elf recovered, his paw would have needed reconstructive surgery to the tune of $3,000. One of our volunteer’s sisters, stepped up and offered to pay the full amount. It was then we realized, there are people who want their donations to be utilized for just these type of situations. Since its inception, many cats have been saved from abusive conditions.
