Waterloo Alley Cat Project fundraiser
The Waterloo Alley Cat Project is proud to announce its 5th annual fundraising event to help raise funds and awareness to the work being done for the feral cat population living in the Waterloo business district of Cleveland. This year the event is FREE thanks to a neighborhood Vibrancy Grant awarded to the group from The Kresge Foundation and Northeast Shores Development Corporation. The night will include silent auctions and basket raffles featuring fabulous items donated by artists and local retailers. A recent donation was received from a writer of the hit TV show BREAKING BAD who has family ties in Collinwood featuring a signed script and other BB collectibles. Free food will be provided from local restaurants; music by local DJs Party Sweat and Junky Bee; a slideshow of the neighborhood feral cats; and special guest mc will be The Ghoul. A truly fun night for a good cause. Monetary and cat food donations will gladly be accepted at the door, but are not required for entry to the event.
The Waterloo Alley Cat Project (WACP) is a small nonprofit group of 7 dedicated people volunteering their time to care for and protect the abandoned/feral cats that live in the burgeoning arts and retail district on Waterloo Road in Cleveland, Ohio. WACP implemented the humane method of trap-neuter/spay-release in November 2009 to help the large number of feral cats in the community. As a result, they have spayed and neutered over 200 cats, found homes for approximately 20, and are currently managing 3 healthy cat colonies. Through teamwork, their mission is to protect the lives of all feral cats and teach that all life is connected.
