EffiBear update

We recently received a nice update on Effi, one of our alumni from 2010. He's now BEAR. Furrever mom writes in that "Effie-Bear is thriving. He's more fun than any cat I've ever had. He has a great personality, is loving, AND likes puppy training treats!!!! JAcKPOT!"

Thank you so much to Nemo Jamez -- and his humans -- who recently donated in memory of those who died at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Nemo's people took the time to come to Hyde Park on their drive through the city westward for the holidays and stop with a very generous donation for Hyde Park Cats and Animal Welfare League -- a generous donation of cat food, dog food, litter, and assorted goodies.


Are you looking to make an end-of-year gift to an organization that makes a difference? Consider Hyde Park Cats! Over the last 4.5 years, using only volunteer hours and donated dollars, we have found furrever homes for 300 cats who would otherwise be on the streets. We have spay/neutered hundreds of cats, leading to a reduction in the homeless cat population in our slice of the world. And we've made a stronger community!

Tax-deductible donations can be made directly to Tree House Humane Society, the low-cost spay/neuter clinic where we have the majority of our veterinary care done, for the exclusive use of Hyde Park Cats. To make a tax-deductible contribution, please send a check to:

Tree House Humane Society Bucktown Branch
ATTN: Doug Stoltzfus
1629 North Ashland Avenue
Chicago, IL 60622

Checks should be made out to Tree House Humane Society with Hyde Park Cats designated in the memo line. These donations will be used directly toward spay, neuter and vaccination veterinary services for Hyde Park Cats ferals and friendlies. Please note that to be credited to the Hyde Park Cats account, donations must be sent to Doug at the Bucktown Branch of Tree House as specified above.
