Canton Rep Article Today, Jan. 28, 2013, I received a letter from the Vice President of the Stark County Humane Society, Brian L. Zimmerman revoking my membership.
On April 13, 2013 I was a presenter at the Lake Erie Labrador Retriever Rescue Animal Seminar. My topic was dispelling the myths regarding feral cats and their overpopulation. It was a wonderful seminar with a lot of information and great networking opportunities. Looking forward to next year already!
CCFF is teaming up with Franks Ferals to provide monthly Trap/Neuter/Return seminars (free of charge) held at One of a Kind Pets in Akron. Check with the clinic or on this page for updated schedule. Hope to see you there.
13 cats were rescued after 40 others were taken and euthanized by local shelter. Here are their pictures on the first night. Seizure Cats HERE ARE SOME UPDATED PHOTOS OF THE CATS. THEIR PERSONALITIES ARE COMING THROUGH AS THEY BECOME MORE COMFORTABLE, WHAT NICE DESERVING CATS! All but 4 have been adopted!! Newer pics
Ms. Kitty....a stray missing an eye with a huge tumor. Photos of Ms. Kitty and her surgery (WARNING...GRAPHIC) can be seen here. Ms. Kitty UPDATE OCT. 27, 2012......Unfortunately Ms. Kitty's cancer had progressed to the point that she was no longer comfortable and was relieved of her suffering. What an impact this little cat had on me in just over 2 short months. Thank you to everyone who contributed to her care.
Evergreen Trailer Park Evergreen Pics Update June 5.....2 more kittens rescued, there is a third we cannot find. Will have pics and info posted soon on who is what, etc... .******UPDATE*****.As of June 1, 2012... 21 cats/kittens have been trapped. The last one this evening was the one I wanted the most! He has a broken tail from someone deliberately running him over. It is in VERY bad shape. He will be tested and evaluated for what can be done for him. Robert "Robert" has had his tail amputated and has been neutered. He has tested positive for FIV, as did my BobCat (my mascot). Robert is able to live a quite normal life with other cats. This disease is transmitted through deep bite wounds, not casual contact through grooming or shared food bowls. What a loving, grateful cat Robert is!!! Out of 21 cats, we have 6 remaining from the Evergreen Trailer Park.

The above links tell the story of a recent rescue. All but 7 of the 25 cats have been placed and are doing well in their new homes.
WHERE ARE MY DONATIONS GOING? I want to assure you that ALL donations go toward the spay/neutering, vetting and care of the animals in my rescue. They also go to assist those in need. Donations of food (dry and canned) and scoopable litter are also very much appreciated. CCFF continues to help the people with large colonies of cats by providing food to them when we have it.
Smokey and Mango, two kitties we helped. Smokey had a deformed leg that had to be amputated... Smokey and Mango UPDATE April 11, Smokey and Mango returned to their home with all kinds of new toys and a nice scratching post donated by ZiffyCat Condos. In return for the help with their cats, the owners have donated bags of food back to the lady caring for the 27 cats that we fixed earlier.

I am one individual trying to do my part in helping homeless and helpless animals find their forever home. I do NOT have a shelter so I am unable to accept animals from individuals. I will accept your animals information and network with others to help place it. Please understand, I am doing my best to help those that call but I can't always be of assistance. I do try! All of my time, gas, supplies are donated because spay/neuter is a cause that I so strongly believe in. All trapping/transporting/recovery is done in between operating three businesses as well as caring for my own animals/home.
I have a soft spot for special needs animals and will do my best to help with them. Not limited to dogs and cats.
Donations are always welcome!! Donations can be made conveniently through PayPal at email@example.com Gift cards to help with the purchase of food and litter or gas cards to help with transportation costs for spay/neutering. All animals are altered using One of a Kind Clinic in Akron. Never think that any amount is too small...1 dollar buys 2 cans of cat food!
ALL animals adopted through Cripple Creek Ferals and Friends will be altered PRIOR to adoption. Adoption contracts and applications are required. Applications will be reviewed in order to place the pet in the best possible home. Cripple Creek adoptables have come from less than perfect situations and I want to ensure they never have to worry about being homeless and hungry again. If for any reason an animal does not work out, CCFF stipulates the animal be returned.
