Many of you may recall my recent blog on the loss of our beloved cat, Lily. If not, please feel free to read this heart touching story by clicking here.
Part of our story was to take our tragic loss and turn it into something positive, hence the start of Lily’s Legacy. Our goal was to raise money to help other animals that need a second chance in life. Lily got her second chance and now it was our turn to pay it forward. The charity that we picked that we know Lily would have loved is called, Companion Animal Rescue Effort (C.A.R.E.) in Mississauga.
C.A.R.E. is devoted to the rescue of stray, abandoned, injured, orphaned cats and dogs, with special emphasis on feral cats. They are volunteer-run, and are dependent on public donations to fund programs. They do not have a shelter facility but run a network of foster homes.
Due to the generous donations to Lily’s Legacy this mother and her kitten can now have a second chance at a forever home. They received the proper vet care and are now living in a foster home until that special family adopts them. We are so touched to hear the impact the donation dollars have already done and we look forward in hearing more success stories!
