BCC holds two winter fundraisers to benefit homeless cats

Punky Brewster, a Branford Compassion Club alumna, was always helpful during food drives.

NORTH BRANFORD — Branford Compassion Club Feline Rescue & Adoption Center kicks off 2020 with two fundraisers to keep the kitties warm and fed this winter.

The first is a food and supply drive on Saturday, Jan. 25 (snow date is Feb. 1) from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at its shelter, located at 2037 Foxon Road. The kitties’ wish list includes Purina Friskies Chicken or Turkey Pate, Blue Buffalo Healthy Gourmet Chicken or Turkey Pate for cats or kittens, Earthborn Feline Primitive dry cat food and Yesterday’s News cat litter. For a complete wish list, visit www.branfordcompassionclub.org.

BCC’s second fundraiser “Hearts for Cats,” runs during the entire month of February. It’s the purrfect gift for your cat-loving Valentine. With a donation of $25 or $50 you can dedicate a heart on BCC’s Donor Wall Tree of Life to that special valentine or pet. Pink hearts can be purchased with a $25 donation and red hearts for $50. The name of that special person or pet will be inscribed on the pink or red heart painted on the donor wall tree. All donations will benefit the BCC homeless cats.

BCC is in great need of volunteers at the shelter to help feed, clean and socialize its cats. There are immediate opening for morning and evening shifts. Volunteer application forms can be found on the website or call 203-483-6369. You can also stop by any Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The cats and kittens will surely help you get rid of the winter blues and put a smile on your face.
