From our Holiday Letter, December 2022
Dear Friend of Border Animal Rescue,
We say this every year, but 2022 sure has been busy! With your help, we’ve rescued, spayed/neutered, and adopted out more than 154 homeless cats and dogs; and we’ve spayed and neutered another 258 cats and dogs in our Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) and low-cost spay/neuter programs. And we will do even more before the year ends! We’re proud to help families all over Cochise County to afford spay/neuter for their beloved pets and to make sure their feral cat friends are fixed, vaccinated, and sheltered.
In one of our ongoing projects, we’ve been working closely with the Douglas State Prison to spay and neuter the many stray cats and kittens that wander into the prison yards and nearby areas. The prisoners are full of compassion for these furry residents and held two fundraiser barbecues this year to support our efforts! We’ve brought many “prison kittens” into foster—like Cash, June, and Folsom—and found loving homes for them
As usual, our volunteers have gone “over and above” to save vulnerable animals—climbed into the rafters of an abandoned trailer, crawled under porches and sheds, scooped up a dazed cat wandering into traffic, gathered up shivering little kittens in a rainstorm, and spent hours nursing bottle babies whose mothers had met some sad demise. We are so grateful that we can save these lives with your support.
