The Edmonton International Cat Festival will be donating $15,000 to Furget Me Not Animal Rescue thanks to YOUR SUPPORT and purrticipation in Edmonton Cat Fest Week 2023!!
In addition, $1,000 was donated to Community Cats Edmonton raised specifically from our Cat Yoga fundraiser classes as part of Edmonton Cat Fest Week. This brings our total raised for local rescues up to $146,000 since 2014. We couldn’t have done it without you!
From Christine Koltun, founder of Furget Me Not Animal Rescue:
“It’s hard to find words to express our gratitude to the organizers, volunteers, vendors and attendees of the 2023 Edmonton International Cat Festival. The energy, enthusiasm and support we received virtually and at events was invaluable, and will stay with us for a long time to come. With the incredible amount of money raised we’ll be able to change the lives of countless cats and kittens in need. From complex surgeries that will improve the quality of life for some kittens currently in our care, to future population control through Trap-Neuter-Release projects, and everything in between. We couldn’t do this without you.”
