  • 1. Cat Care Society Partners with LoveAnimals.org to raise funds to help Shelter Kitty Wakko Cat Care Society (CCS) is partnering with LoveAnimals.org to raise funds to help Shelter Kitty Wakko during  May 2014. Wakko has a congenital abnormality of his nasal passage that requires sophisticated diagnostics  and treatment so he can be adopted to his forever home.    Lakewood, CO – May 7, 2014 – Through May 31, Cat Care Society (CCS) is raising funds  for a shelter cat named Wakko, who has a congenital abnormality requiring specialized  diagnostics and treatment. The announcement is made by CCS President Diane Stoner,  who says, "We’re asking the public to donate online at LoveAnimals.org help Wakko,  Cat Care Society's darling teenage kitty in need of medical tests to better diagnose  what we believe to be a birth defect. This defect is in his nasal passage, and it prevents  him from breathing easily.”    CCS has partnered with LoveAnimals.org to help us raise funds to cover the cost of  Wakko's diagnostic tests. 100% of donations will go to Wakko's diagnostic test costs ‐ LoveAnimals.org does  not keep a percentage of the funds. Link to donate at: http://www.loveanimals.org/pets/wakko‐needs‐your‐ help.html   Stoner explains: “Initial estimates for just the diagnostics, not treatment, have been around $3,500. Again,  that's just for tests and diagnosis. If a reasonable treatment is available, it will require additional funds, and we  cannot estimate those until we fully understand Wakko’s specific needs. And the best news ‐ the board of  directors has designated up to $1,000 to be used as a matching gift. All gifts will be matched by the board (up  to the $1,000 value of the matching gift fund).”    About LoveAnimals.org  LoveAnimals.org provides an online crowdfunding platform where non‐profits can list their most urgent  funding needs and where many donors can quickly and easily give small donations to the projects that most  inspire them. These many small donations collectively fund entire projects, providing non‐profits with more  resources enabling them to help more animals faster. Link to learn more:  http://www.loveanimals.org/resources/LoveAnimalsorg_Beta_Launch_Press_Releasefinal.pdf About the Cat Care Society  CCS, founded in 1981, is a nonprofit organization established to improve the quality of life for homeless,  injured and abused cats in the Denver metropolitan area. The Society's goals are:   To sponsor educational programs that promote responsible pet ownership, humane treatment of all  animals, and the elimination of pet overpopulation;   To shelter cats in a healthy, cage free environment and to find compatible and responsible families for every cat;  To provide community outreach programs that improve the quality of life for cats and people;    To be a friend to all cats.   ‐More‐
