Featured Feline: Mama Big Eyes:

This beautiful female with the big blue eyes came to the shelter last March as a rescue along with her four tiny babies!

She was only about a year old and this was probably her first litter.

After kittens Bentley, Royce, Mercedes & Porsche were weaned, Mama was spayed and went to live in one of the shelter bungalows with other adoptable adults.

She was recently released into the yard, but continues to welcome human attention and would make a good companion for someone who wants an older kitty.

Contact Linda at adopt@purrproject.com if you are interested in giving a Forever Home to Mama B or any of our older felines.

Before & After

Trisha’s Kitten House:

We have a beautiful new remodeled nursery, thanks to a generous donation by Trisha Aljoe.

It started back in early November when she visited the shelter and was so impressed by Simona’s Senior Center that she decided the kittens needed a place just as nice.

The basic structure was slightly enlarged and we added tiled walls, good drainage, new screening, a higher ceiling and two ceiling fans for those hot, sultry summers!

It has such a clean, airy look now and is a purr-fect place to go pet some kitties……and boy, do they love visitors!!!

One out and two more in…..seems like the nursery is always full.

The count was 32 last week. Unfortunately, many of our little kittens are growing older…..and bigger….and will soon have to join the 125+ adult cats living in the yard if not adopted in the next few months!

PLEASE consider giving a Forever Home to one of these sweet felines.

Contact Linda at adopt@purrproject.com for more information.

Isla Cuale Free Clinic:

The monthly FREE Spay/Neuter Clinics on the island continue to be busy.

They have sterilized over 80 cats & dogs at each of the last three clinics and several hundred since it started last year.

A big “Thank You” to all the PuRR Project volunteers who always show up to lend a hand as it is a LOT of work to process that many animals in a few hours in an outdoor setting.

They are scheduled for the first Sunday each month and PuRR will be sponsoring the one on March 5th.

Registration starts at 7:00 am and the animal should have had no food or water for at least 8 hours.

Pandora, one of our new babies!
