Save a Cat Application on Facebook
By virtually fostering a cat on Facebook’s “Save a Cat,” you earn points that translate into real donations that will help real rescue cats.
For every 2,500 points you score, we donate the financial equivalent of a cup of food to RescueGroups.org, a non-profit organization that provides free and low-cost technology services to animal shelters and rescue groups across the country. The more points you earn, the more cats you help save!
Earning points is easy. All you have to do is join the Save a Cat application and then choose a particular action. Each time you take action, you earn points. Or in some cases, you earn points when someone else takes action. For example, join the Save a Cat application and you automatically earn 100 points. Fostering a cat scores you 100 points and scratching your cat scores you 25 points each day. Ask a friend to foster a cat or co-foster yours, and that's another 100 points when they accept.
It's easy and fun, but the best part is it costs you nothing except a moment or two of your time. And, your actions help feed real cats in real shelters. Again, the money helps rescues and shelters via our partner, RescueGroups.org, an official 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. They provide essential technical services that allow rescues and shelters to post their pets on the Internet, thereby greatly increasing their chances of adoption. Through donations, RescueGroups.org is able to provide its services free or at a low cost to animal welfare groups that could not otherwise afford them.
ACR uses RescueGroups.org’s Pet Adoption Portal to save us time and money. They help us post our kitties in need of adoption all over the internet and for FREE! This allows our kitties to be posted on more sites and increase the chances of their being adopted. This service helps us update countless sites at one time and at no cost to us. It makes life easier and helps find more kitties furrever homes!
Plus, by using Save a Cat, millions of users get to virtually foster kitties from ACR! This application will help us find homes for our kitties, especially some of our “special needs” kitties, like Bugsey or Pumpkin. So, please add the Save a Cat application to your Facebook account and add Alley Cat Rescue to your favorite shelters. Then, start fostering our kitties and earning points for a great cause!
