TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

More money is coming into a local no-kill cat shelter.  

PAWSitively CATS has been awarded a matching grant of $10,000 from Meilei's Fund held at the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona.  Shelter leaders say it comes after excellent response from an $8,000 challenge grant they received last year.  

PAWSitively CATS said it's hoping to match or even exceed the grant with the help of animal lovers, including people who live in Tucson part time. The shelter is facing increased operating expenses beyond what it pays to provide food, cat litter, veterinary care and other supplies.  

Donations of all sizes are needed to help PAWSitively CATS reach their goal of matching the $10,000 grant.
 
Donations can be made through PayPal at www.pawsitivelycats.org, www.youcaring.com/pawsmatchinggrant, or sent by mail to PAWSitively CATS, P.O. Box 32115, Tucson, AZ 85751.  

In addition to financial gifts, the shelter is always in need of the following:
  • Friskies pâté style canned cat food (pâté style food is necessary for cats with dental issues)
  • Kirkland brand dry cat food from Costco
  • ExquisiCat brand natural wheat litter from PetSmart
  • Laundry detergent, bleach, and dishwashing liquid
These items can be dropped off at PAWSitively CATS' Adoption Center at 3432 E Ft. Lowell Road (on the south side of Ft. Lowell Road and next door to Outer Limits Day Care Center).

For questions or directions, contact the Executive Director, Sheryl Campbell, at 520-289-2747 or by email at savecats@pawsitivelycats.org.

    The storm swept through the camp, taking down four tents, knocking over a refrigerator and leaving them without power. Volunteers said this is the worst damage they've ever seen.
