Kitty Rescue Press Release
Cat-Struction has begun
Monadnock Kitty Rescue has begun renovating their present location at 11 Plantation Drive in Jaffrey, after signing a lease for the next 15 years! Plans are underway to upgrade the whole facility from top to bottom with all new floors, walls, ceilings, light fixtures and more! The whole project will take a minimum of 6 months and they hope to have a big open house next spring to reveal their new look.
The rescue will be open during the renovations, however incoming will be little bit stressed do to the renovations, so they are asking the anyone who plans to surrender a cat please contact the shelter prior to bring them in, as space will be tight for the next 6 months.
Adoptions will go on as usual as will their open hours of Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6-9 and Saturday Mornings from 9-1. “It would be wonderful if most the animals could find a home, especially now with all the construction on the premises,” says Shelter Director Heidi Bourgeois
The shelter is still fundraising to help pay for the many renovations that are needed at the location. If you would like to help there are many opportunities, including sponsoring rooms, banks of cages, catios(outdoor pens) and more.

Events will continue as usual along with their Annual Black Kitten Saturday Open House on Saturday, November 25th from 2-5 pm.

FUNDRAISING - Help us save the shelter!
We need help to raise money as we are being evicted at the end of June!
SHELTER STAFF - Taking care of the day-to-day needs of our cats and kittens.
EVENT STAFFERS - Going to events and setting up a table to promote our shelter. These may also include adoption events where you would have to transport kittens to and from an event.
Due to an increase in veterinary costs and State required health certifications, we will have a slight increase in our adoption fees starting on July 1st. Single Cat adoptions will stay at the $120 each, the 2 cat/kitten adoption fee will now be raised to $200 instead of $175. Anyone who has a cat/our kitten on hold prior to the July 1st date will be at the old rate. Thanks so much for your understanding, Heidi, adoption manager
