Cathy Evans, a longtime animal lover and vegetarian, founded the Campus Cat Coalition of the College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina in February 2004. Like many cities, Charleston has been experiencing a growing urban feline population. These cats often live an unfortunate life -- underfed, overbred and diseased. The Campus Cat Coalition seeks to curb the population and provide a better life for these cats. They catch them with a live-trap and have them spayed or neutered, vaccinated, injected with flea preventative, tested for feline diseases, dewormed and tagged. The cats are then released back onto campus. Each day the volunteer group provides food, water and affection. Flea treatments are maintained once per month.
Countless cats' lives have been changed for the better... but all this work takes money. While support on campus is high, funds still run short each year. The Campus Cat Coalition has launched a fund drive through October 14 and you can help!
In addition to being an animal lover, Cathy is also a very talented artist. She designed the Goth Girl t-shirt pictured above. This original art has been printed on black, sweatshop-free, organic cotton t-shirts and are available by mail for $26 (shipping included). To place an order, e-mail Cathy at: firstname.lastname@example.org. To simply make a donation of any amount, please send your check to: Cathy Evans, 3726 Humbert Road, Johns Island, SC 29455.
On behalf of the cats, thank you.
