WITH OUR GRATITUDE
Happy Strays is forever appreciative to the following who support our rescue with their time, gifts, and hearts:  

We gratefully acknowledge the Healey Foundation for the continued support!  Their genrous partnership helps us with our medical expenses every year.

It is with great appreciation that we thank the PETCO Foundation for their financial assistance with our spay and neuter efforts and for their recent donation of kitten products in September 2011!


Special thanks to the Caltech CAT team for their collaboration in rescuing homeless kitties on campus.

Thank you to Pet Meds for providing for our kitties!

Our friends at Big Tujunga Vet Hospital, Animal Medical Hospital in Pasadena, Altadena Animal Hospital, and The Cat Doctor in Valencia.

We thank our partners at Heaven on Earth, particularly Pamela Geisel

We give a "shout out" to Dorothy who sews wonderful carrier pads so that each adopted kitty gets a new blanket to take home!

Many thanks to Precious Cat for generously supplying our rescue with cat litter and for kindly providing sample bags for all of our adoptive families.



IN MEMORY
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. 

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food and water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing: they miss someone very special to them; who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. The bright eyes are intent; the eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to break away from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. YOU have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. -Author Unknown

A letter from one of our recipients:

Dear Happy Strays,
Thank you so much for your help, especially lately. The donation food helps a lot!  I got some from the rescue two times in the past week and shared it with other disabled cat owners.  :)  My cats like it and so did theirs!  Friends also had their cats fixed by Happy Strays since they couldn't afford it.  My own cats have gotten a lot of help over the past few years from Happy Strays.  Please keep donating to Happy Strays.  It's a real organization and the money actually goes to the cats!

Sincerely,
Rhonda and the kitties
