Madison County Cats: Rainy Days

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.

Day #2: Madison County Cats

Thank you to Marcia Goodman, RedRover Responders volunteer and Communications Assistant, for these reflections on the second day of this response.

.Is it really just Day 2 of the RedRover deployment to Jacksonville, Florida? The volunteers feel as though it’s been at least a week!

Cats of Madison County

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.
