For the holidays, we are asking you to adopt a community cat caretaker to thank them for their year round work.
Walt is a retiree in his 70’s living on the Northside.
This is a very special caretaker. He has a colony of 26 cats, all TNVRd. And every one of them is a black cat. Not by design, just by the sheer magnitude of rejection and fear of black cats. Walt has houses and feeding stations on his property. Some of the cats opt to live in nearby abandoned houses. He works closely with local rescuers to ensure any cat is trapped and spayed/neutered. Walt also helps deliver donated food to other caretakers.
Walt buys 390 pounds of cat food each month. He feeds Purina which has been struggling with supply chain issues. Walt is willing to accept other brands when we have them and is incredibly gracious about the support.
We’d like to celebrate their efforts to help community cats by sending some Santa Claws magic their way.
adopt the entire colony for one month (food, treats, supplies)
adopt the colony with a monthly donation
sponsor a TNVR for a Northside cat
How to participate
Contact us firstname.lastname@example.org with the name(s) of the caretaker you’d like to Santa Claws and describe what you’d like to contribute. This helps us ensure everyone receives a gift.
Gift cards can be sent via USPS or dropped at 1439 W. North Avenue Pittsburgh PA 15233 in the mail slot.
Walt’s cat food drive wishlist can be found atBit.ly/CatWalt – items will ship directly to them. We suggest adopting their entire colony for an entire month or sending a monthly donation of food to help them on a year round basis.
