The Boundary’s only dedicated cat shelter raised over $1,500 through last week’s online auction.
Cat-lovers from across the Boundary bid on cat accessories and bumper stickers through the Boundary Helping Hands Feline Rescue Society’s (Helping Hands) Facebook page the week of April 1-8.
Helping Hands’ president Kimberly Fenny said proceeds will go a long way to the helping the organization’s furry charges.
Shelter volunteers work to find fur-ever homes for feral and abandoned cats rescued across the Boundary. Many kitties are in a bad way when they come to the the society’s Grand Forks shelter, and the shelter is dutifully raising money to nurse them back to health.
It costs around $150 to neuter, vaccinate, de-worm and microchip males, Feeny said, noting that the bill is around $50 more for females. Many rescues need more extensive veterinary treatment before they can leave the shelter, she added.
The shelter at 6932 2nd St. is open by appointment, seven days a week. Those looking to adopt cats or who want to volunteer at the shelter are asked to call Feeny at 250-801-0519.
