How to Adopt: Things to Consider
Falling in love with a cat or kitten is easy and cat ownership can be very rewarding. Adopting a cat, however, is a big decision.

Brigid's Crossing encourages you to think through your decision before you adopt a companion animal. +Read More

Medical Grants
Specialists for Animals Foundation: SAFI is a non-profit organization that was created in 2009 to help with the cost of specialized veterinary health care for owners of small animals who have demonstrated an inability to pay for such specialized veterinary care.

Insure Your Adopted Pet
PetFirst’s 30-day pet insurance plan is an offer available to every dog and cat adopted from your organization, regardless of age. This program ensures the pets you adopt out are covered for accidents and illnesses once they leave your care. The 30-day pet insurance reimburses 100% of vet bills incurred during this time up to $500 per incident after a $50 deductible, which can be a safety net for a pet parent to be able to afford an unforeseen medical emergency, rather than making the tragic decision not to treat. Be sure to view the PetFirst Reference Guide for additional information and exclusions. +Read More

Cats in the Spotlight

Hello I am Sean
PET OF THE WEEK for 7/22/2014

Sean is a sweet, shy cat who will win your heart in a minute. He came to us feline leukemia positive from another rescue group when he was just a kitten. We are so grateful he made it through kitten hood and young adulthood. He is seven years old now and has been the picture of health until very recently.

On July 10, 2014, Sean collapsed and began crying out. He was rushed to the hospital and received two emergency blood transfusions. In addition to severe anemia we discovered he also has a very low platelet count (platelets are needed for blood to clot) and white blood cell count (white blood cells fight infection). This was very serious.

May the wind be always at your back
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.
