Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary

Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary

North Carolina, USA

Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary, Inc., (BCR) is a 501c3, non-profit founded in 2005 by a mother-daughter team of shelter volunteers who wanted to find a way to save cats that shelters reject – blind cats and those that test positive for FIV or feline leukemia.  These cats are declared un-adoptable and immediately euthanized in high-kill animal control facilities.  Without this sanctuary, these cats would not be here.  Over the last 16 years, BCR has been committed to educating the public about these cats and their ability to be loving family pets.  Through a strong social media presence, 24-hour access cameras and daily live Facebook shelter tours, BCR now has a global following and a strong platform to continue to educate people and other organizations about the true nature and ability of blind cats.  Monthly Open Houses that welcome the public and hosting groups or individuals to help care for the cats or just to visit them, offer many opportunities for volunteers to experience and participate in BCR’s activities.

Working to improve the lives of cats who live outside the sanctuary, BCR sponsors an ongoing spay and neuter program in Guilford County, NC, focused on feral colonies. Working with CatsFirst and local TNR groups, the program has, over the past four years, spayed or neutered more than 6,000 cats, thus preventing thousands of unwanted kittens from being born and living in harm’s way or being euthanized in shelters.  A secondary benefit of the spay and neuter program is to improve the health of the adult feral cats by reducing the incidence of FIV and feline leukemia.

 

BCR has also worked for the welfare of animals in its own community.  In 2014, BCR spearheaded a program to make sure local first-responders in Robeson County, NC, have animal oxygen masks on all emergency vehicles.  In 2015, BCR provided a heat detector for a county’s canine police unit, which alerts the officer when the police car’s air conditioner fails, putting his canine partner at risk for death from excess heat. The presence of the detector will prevent such a tragedy.

 

BCR is a donation-funded non-profit governed by a Board of Directors and is managed by a President and Vice President (the founders of the rescue). Its on-site employees are fully dedicated to the care of the sanctuary’s resident cats.
