Boston has joined with other cities from around the nation to ban the sale of commercially bred animals in pet stores. Pet stores can continue to work with rescue groups and shelters to help people meet animals to adopt.
The Boston Globe covers the story here.
We love Rock & Rawhide! If you don't know them, they are a nonprofit organization that provides food, toys, and supplies for animals in shelters and in the care of rescue groups. These are just some of the wonderful donations that they have given to Infinite Hope recently for our foster kitties. Thank you, Rock & Rawhide!
Infinite Hope's assistance in bringing home Arthur "the Subway Cat" earned a reward from cat lover John Catsimatidis.Read more
Doug got some good news from the specialists at Animal Medical Center (AMC) yesterday. The cardiologist said that Doug has a very rare condition that is causing his heart murmur, but he believes that it is treatable with surgery. Doug needs to wait until he's a bit bigger for that procedure, but thanks to AMC To The Rescue funds, most of his vet care will be covered!
Infinite Hope volunteers will be teaching another TNR workshop on Saturday, December 5th. You can register with the NYC Feral Cat Initiative. The workshop is free and participants who complete the workshop will be certified in TNR, providing access to free spay/neuter appointments, equipment rentals, and other support to help people care for community cats in their neighborhoods.
This year Infinite Hope joined the Strut your Mutt fundraising walk for animal rescue. Thanks to everyone who supported us by donating to our team and to the folks who walked with us! We raised 97% of our $5,000 goal, which will help to fuel our rescue work.

It was a beautiful day to raise funds for animal rescue! THANK YOU to our Strut Your Mutt team members and team sponsors -- we loved having you with us in person and in spirit. It was lots of fun for a great cause -- saving animal lives.
We were happy to help celebrate National Feral Cat Day with the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals and the New York City Feral Cat Initiative at the 2015 Fall Feral Feline Fiesta last night. Infinite Hope was even included in the evening's timeline of TNR in NYC.
