Blind Cat Rescue
2020 Animaltarian of the Year
The Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary (BCR) exists because of one woman’s passion for saving animals that don’t have a chance. Blind cats and cats who test positive for FIV or feline leukemia are by law immediately euthanized in many states. Begun in 2005 out of a desire and drive to help these condemned cats, who can have normal, happy lives, BCR is now a forever home to blind, FIV- and leukemia-positive cats who will never again be abandoned, hungry or in harm’s way. Because of BCR, more people now adopt cats like them and give them happy, lifelong homes.
With many seniors, FIV- and leukemia-positive cats, providing health care is costly. A typical monthly vet bill is $10,000. The $5,000 donation from winning Animaltarian of the Year will help cover these costs and help keep the BCR cats healthy and thriving.
