Colony Cats (& Dogs) Raise Funds to Save Homeless Pets

Colony Cats (& dogs) today conducted a fund-raising drive to raise money to find homes for more abandoned cats and dogs.

The Colony Cats is raffling a house to raise money that will directly support the rescue and adoption services of the abandoned animals.

For a mere $100, the cost of a raffle ticket, one might win a lovely Condo.

Odds are in your favor, too. The maximum number of tickets they’re selling is only 2500.

Photos of your future possible abode, description, and details of the raffle drawing including how to buy your ticket are available 7/24 on Colony Cat’s website at:

Whoever wins the new home for the “A House for Homes” raffle ticket goes to a good cause.

Approximately 5 million to 7 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year. Approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized.

Five out of ten dogs in shelters and seven out of ten cats in shelters are destroyed simply because there is no one to adopt them.

Given the current economy and the worsening home foreclosure crisis, euthanasia of homeless pets is on the rise. In the central Ohio area, Colony Cats (& dogs) receives over 10,000 calls a year asking for assistance with placing pets. Many of whom are in urgent need of rescue.

Raffle tickets are $100 each, and Colony Cats’ goal is to raise $125,000.

There is no limit on the number of tickets per person.

This new home raffle drawing takes place May 7th. Participants do not need to be present to win.
