Seventy-five percent of animals that have found homes through Friends for Life, one of the fastest growing "no-kill" animal-adoption-and-rescue organizations in Houston, were deemed unadoptable at other area shelters due to their advanced age or medical conditions. Because elderly cats may spend months to years living at the shelter, or may never end up being adopted at all, Friends for Life places a premium on maintaining their comfort and quality of life.
Friends for Life plans to open a new, LEED-certified animal shelter in spring 2012. The organization would like to create a comfortable Senior Kitty room for elderly cats that reside at the shelter, providing them with a safe, loving environment to aid in both their mental and physical well-being. The older cats will be able to roam freely and safely in the room, which the staff hopes to furnish with soft beds, climbers, and toys.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help Friends for Life furnish a Senior Kitty room for the elderly cats in the shelter. If G-Team members raise $400, then Friends for Life can purchase four cat climbers with soft beds. Each additional $100 raised will be used to buy another cat climber and bed for the Senior Kitty room.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100 percent off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
Today, the shelter is actively saving the lives of tens of thousands of cats and dogs each year.Shelby Hodge, CultureMap, 1/27/11
