Welcome to Habitat for Cats!
Messages from Habitat for Cats!
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our former Habitat for Cats Board member, Kathy Rivera. Kathy, a lifelong advocate for animals, dedicated her entire life assisting feral and homeless cats. She spent several years volunteering her time with Habitat for Cats and played a key role as a Director. She spent her time on the board creating policy, organizing a variety of programs and educating the public about the importance of spaying and neutering their pets. Kathy also had a talent for grant writing which brought critically needed funds to the pursuit of our mission. Kathy showed her grit and commitment volunteering in our grittiest Rochester neighborhoods, where homeless cats were abundant, and spay/neuter was most in need. There was no mountain too high for Kathy to climb! Kathy Rivera was a true inspiration to all and she will be sadly missed - especially by those of us involved in the Greater Rochester humane network. Though we have lost Kathy here on Earth -- heaven has gained a true angel and as she said so often… she now gets to meet all her fur babies at the Rainbow Bridge! Your donation in Kathy’s honor supports our work to help homeless cats and support feral cat caretakers with spay/neuter and other assistance - a mission to which Kathy dedicated her life.
