The 700 cats rescued from Caboodle Ranch are another step closer towards the lives they deserve, thanks to a courtroom win last week. RedRover Responders volunteers deployed three times to provide sheltering and care for the cats earlier this year after they were seized from the property.
RedRover Responders volunteers are back at it: helping to care for the nearly 700 cats rescued from a failed cat sanctuary in Florida. Eight volunteers travelled to Jacksonville to provide the daily care necessary to give these beleaguered cats a chance at better lives.
Many thanks to Marcia Goodman, RedRover Responders volunteer and Communications Assistant, for writing this blog series on our deployment to Madison County, Florida. This is her final entry for this series.
This final entry in this blog series focuses on the wonderful RedRover Responders volunteers who deployed to Jacksonville, Florida. I wasn't able to interview all of them, but the ones I did speak with represented a good sample of our volunteers.
Thank you to Marcia Goodman, RedRover Responders volunteer and Communications Assistant, for keeping us updated on this deployment.
As RedRover Responders volunteers were completing the late afternoon feeding today of the nearly 700 cats at the emergency shelter, we were a little apprehensive. We'd already had pouring rain, and the threat of severe thunderstorms and a tornado watch were part of the weather forecast on this day that saw much destruction from tornadoes in the South.
This blog entry was written by Marcia Goodman, RedRover Responders volunteer and Communications Assistant as she reflected on the first day of deployment.
Every RedRover deployment is different, and the current rescue of cats from Madison County, Florida is no exception.
For starters, it's huge. By the end of the first day, 200 cats have been rescued, but that's just the beginning. Because all the cats ran loose on the property, there's no certainty in the estimate of the total number of cats who will be rescued, but it may reach as many as 700.
