Kitty Rescue Benefit Golf Classic
Featuring the Patriot Cheerleaders
On Friday, September 23rd the New England Patriots Cheerleaders will be joining some of the areas' golfers in the Kitty Rescue Benefit Golf Classic at The Shattuck Golf Club in Jaffrey! Pre-registration is recommended as this is going to be an extremely sought after event and space is limited.
The day will begin at 8:00 am with coffee and donuts and registration. There will also be a meet and greet with some of the most adorable kittens from Kitty Rescue, who will be there for most of the day! A shotgun start at 9:00 am, will be followed by a $25,000 Putting Contest!
The total golf package includes 18 holes of golf, cart and lunch along with a goodie bag with items from our participating sponsors for only $85 per person. The Hole-In-One Contest will offer a chance to win $10,000 plus many other prizes on designated holes through the course.
The Patriots Cheerleaders will arrive at 1:30 and be on hand until 3:30 to mingle and have your picture taken with them... so bring your camera! The Shattuck Golf Course, itself offers some wonderful views of Mt. Monadnock, that are quite picture-worthy.
Throughout the day Kitty Rescue will be doing raffles and giveaways. They will also be selling their commemorative bricks for the new shelter, 50/50 raffle tickets for a $5000. giveaway and much more.
This benefit is to help Monadnock Kitty Rescue and Adoption build a new shelter as their lease runs out at the end of the year and the landlord will not be renewing it. So far the shelter has raised just over 100k and has to reach their goal of 500k before the end of the year.
Kitty Rescue is the home to over 125 cats and kittens. Last year they took in 56 cats and found loving homes for 86! So far this year 85 cats and kittens have found their way into new families!
The Rescue is a no-kill, 501c3 non-profit rescue run by a team of dedicated volunteers, with no paid positions. All the money that you donate goes to the care of the cats and kittens that they rescue or into the new building fund. All money donated is tax deductible.
The shelter includes a feral sanctuary which is home to about 80+ cats. This is where cats that come into the shelter go if they are too scared and/or traumatized to be adopted into a home. They receive daily care, but do not in most cases interact with the volunteers, as they are too frightened. Some however, do become friendly enough to get adopted, which is the greatest feeling for the shelter volunteers!
Kitty Rescue has been fundraising since they found out last August that they would have to be out of their present location by the end of 2016. The fundraising is a bit behind, as they were hoping to be at least at the halfway point by now. They have a GoFundMe page www.gofundme.com/uf7y6bbj and can accept donations through PayPal on their website www.kittyrescueandadoption.org. All your donations are tax deductible. If you are not a golfer and are unable to attend the Kitty Rescue Benefit Golf Classic, please consider helping out this worthy cause.

Registration forms are also available by stopping by the rescue or the Jaffrey Chamber of Commerce. The shelter is located at 11 Plantation Drive in the Superior Foundation Building in Jaffrey NH. They are open Tuesday and Thursday Evenings 6-9pm and Saturday Mornings 9-1.
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
