National Feral Cat Day is October 16, 2011 which means it’s time to start planning for the big day. This year, Alley Cat Allies are calling on cat rescues to show that people have Compassion for Cats. Their goal is to have 250 events in 50 states.
As an incentive, they’re offering a National Feral Cat Day Superstar Award by presenting $1,000 each to the top five most innovative and effective events held by cat rescue organizations.
In order to be eligible for the $1,000 prize, you must apply for the awards by August 12.
Visit the National Feral Cat Day 2011 online Resource Center for inspiration and ideas of events you can host.
Are you hosting an event for the first time? Whether you’re a National Feral Cat Day veteran or newcomer, every host who registers an event in their interactive listing will receive an event start-up kit and an Alley Cat Allies staff contact for direct and personalized support.
Start the brainstorming and planning. Tucson Tails would love to see a Tucson or Arizona cat rescue win $1,000.
And don’t forget to email email@example.com about your event so I can share with my readers as it gets closer to October 16.
