For May, Beading Divas is excited to have Tucson CARES as their fundraising partner. Tucson CARES (Companion Animal Rescue Education and Support) is a truly unique, small but mighty all volunteer run non-profit organization dedicated to saving the savable through direct action and advocacy.
Many animals in Tucson CARES care have special needs–both acute and chronic medical conditions, are seniors or are hospice. While they believe there is a home for each and every one, they also know that many will be in long-term sanctuary, quite possibly for the rest of their lives.
This is LOUIE, a Tucson CARES volunteer favorite who was rescued from a deadline at PACC in 2014 when he broke with severe calicivirus and because his behaviors were said by leadership to be ‘scaring people.’ Due to inbreeding and thus a lack of genetic diversity, LOUIE has cognitive issues that result in repetitive behaviors, as well as pose other challenges including not using the litterbox. He also has a history of urinary crystals and requires a special prescription diet. LOUIE loves being swaddled and being carried in a baby sling!
Get on it! Mother’s Day is Sunday May 10th. Place your order promptly in order for your mom to receive a bracelet to celebrate the day. Is your mother a cat lover? She will be doubly pleased that her gift helps to fund cat rescue and cat care.
