Wags & Purrs


Here are some of the many ways that friends in our community have supported the animals. Have you or your group done something to help? Send your story and picture to Marguerite Pearson at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

RogerXCUPurrs to The Katbird Shop and Roger the Cat whose Meet and Greet event in support of "Roger Fur Mayor" of Schenectady raised over $500! Roger's campaign goal is to support the APF's expansion of its low-cost spay/neuter program.

Special thanks to all of Roger's adoring constituents who stopped by and made donations.
