Immediately following Hurricane Dorian, the Bahamas Humane Society desperately needed to empty its shelter in order to make room for animals requiring refuge on the devastated islands.  In addition to several international relief organizations, Cat Depot worked collaboratively with members of the Florida Association of Animal Welfare Organizations (FAAWO) to save dozens of animals from the storm-ravaged areas of the Bahamas. On September 13, Cat Depot staff met ten cats at the airport in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The resilient kitties had health challenges, exacerbated by the stress of the hurricane. They spent a month under veterinary care at Cat Depot. “The cats’ wellbeing is always our number one concern,” says Cat Depot Executive Director Jackie Ott Jaakola. “In addition to exemplary veterinary care, we committed to providing extra TLC to these evacuees, and are now facilitating their journey into new loving families.” Several cats have been adopted and others can be met in the Cat Depot adoption suites. They are ready to become a part of your family! 

Cat Depot relies on donations from the community to fund its lifesaving work and helps more than 1,400 cats find homes annually. Cat Depot’s mission is to save lives, find loving homes, and provide the resources and education needed to improve the destiny of homeless cats.

Open Monday through Friday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Cat Depot is located at 2542 17th Street, Sarasota, FL 34234. www.catdepot.org
