We are Fuzzy Bukkets Rescue, Inc. The name comes from my Mom who always called cats “fuzzy buckets.” My name is Deborah and I’m the President of Fuzzy. There are 3 other volunteers and we collectively take care of 50 cat colonies.
We take care of homeless animals. And, homeless people when we come across them. We take any injured animal and get them to the proper rescue group or the ER Vet. We participate in TNR (trap, neuter, return). We deal with No More Homeless Pets since they give us the rescue rate for spay and neuter. Each trapped cat gets an examination, neutered/spayed, and vaccinated for $25. Sounds like a great price, and it is, but multiply that by the number of cats we trap and it adds up fast. This is in addition to the $350-$500 each of our volunteers spends for food each week. We’ve had to stop trapping several times due to lack of funds.
We pick up and re-home any newly dropped cats and kittens. We “steal” kittens from colonies when they are around six weeks old to tame and re-home. In fact I have several right now that need homes. But not just any home; these kittens only know humans as those big things that scream at them and throw things. I am the only “nice” human they know. They need homes where their new parents will understand their fear and are patient with them. Once they realize you will not hurt them, you’ll have a friend for the rest of their lives.
These cats did not ask to be homeless. People did this to them. The same people that cuss at us, run us off the road and put poison on the food we leave. Some people are great, some even help with food or money. And, if you’re here you’re very likely one of them. You understand what we are doing and appreciate it. We’d like to tell you, EVERY little bit helps…even if it’s only words of encouragement!
