Rescue mission for island felines

Published: Wednesday, April 16, 2014 at 02:03 PM.

She said about $700 of the money spent on medical care was donated by friends of South Carolina snowbird June Crawford, who runs a pet sitting business back home.

Buell and Gore have named their project St. George Island Cat Allies. They are already working in partnership with the Franklin County Humane Society and are seeking 501 C 3 not for profit status.

Down the road, the pair is looking for cooperators with veterinary training to help with medical procedures without traveling away from the county.

Gore said she is planning a meet and greet on the island early in May to promote SGI Cat Allies.

Buell is offering an unusual incentive to adopt one of her furry charges. She plans to show her 20-foot motorized catamaran in the Antique and Classic Boat Show this weekend and is offering a 30-minute boat ride to anybody who donated to the cause or qualifies to adopt a cat.

She is calling her incentive program “Save a kitty and Ride a Cat.”

If you want to help either by volunteering, making a donation or adopting a cat, please call at Gore 323-0123 or Buell at 370 1125.
