Can you give $5 to help pay for Kitten Miguels's surgery?

Miguel is a 5 month old kitten found outside in Bed-Stuy. We can never turn our backs on an abandoned cat so we took him and brought him to our vet. We filed a lost report but noone ever claimed him. We learned that Miguel had a herniated bladder so our wonderful Dr. G performed surgery. The cost was $500 but well worth it. Miguel is a happy, lovable kitten now just waiting for his new home.
We don't want to turn away animals because of finances. With your donation we can pay for Miguel's surgery.

Marathon running for the furries!

On Sunday March  20th, Dave, one of our kitty fosters, ran a half marathon with donations going to A Tail at a Time. Dave we appreciate this so much and thank you for raising money for the furries. Below is an email we received from Dave.
"I  just wanted to let you know that my Dad and I completed the NY Half Marathon yesterday, with no broken bones, shrapnel knees or severed limbs. In fact, we both set personal bests, me coming in 5 and a half minutes better than my previous best at 1:38:56, and by Dad doing it in 1:51:27, 30 seconds better than his previous best - fantastic! It's a brilliant course, and I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who fancies doing it next year.

More importantly, your donations and support have been absolutely sensational, and to date, you have helped me raise over $2000 for my charity, A Tail at a Time http://www.atailatatime.org/. I just can't tell you how much I appreciate it, and I know that all at A Tail at a Time, from humans to furry creatures will be delighted. The money you have kindly donated will be used wisely and will save the lives of beautiful, helpless animals. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

The sponsorship page closes this week, so if you still wish to donate, you can do so here: http://www.crowdrise.com/davenewyorkhalfmarathon

Once again, thank you - i'm genuinely overwhelmed by your support and kindness."

Below are some photos that Dave and Stacey have fostered for us. They have taken in many kittens, sent us great bios and wonderful pictures, while attending every single adoption event. To 2 great fosters we are lucky to have you!
