Rescue seeking donations

Bikini Beach Cat Rescue is having a yard sale fundraiser to raise money for low-cost spay/neuter clinics for cats to reduce the overpopulation of cats and kittens in the community.

They need donations of gently used furniture, household items and decorations, small appliances, kitchen items, pictures, chairs, tables, lamps, computer desks, dishes, children’s clothes, toys, tools, etc.

Now is the time to clean out those closets and help the animals too.

Tax-deductible receipts are available.

Call 655-7881 for drop off; limited pick up available. They also need name brand cat food, small to large bags, towels and donations for surgeries for the cats whose caregivers are in need of help.

A $50 donation pays for one spay, which includes a rabies vaccination and a basic examination.
