Attendees can cuddle kittens, enjoy coffee and refreshments, ask cat questions and participate in family friendly activities.
EASTON, PA.— Feline Urban Rescue and Rehab (FURR), a Lehigh Valley and Warren County N.J. 501(c)(3) dedicated to the care and rehabilitation of community cats, will host a pop-up cat cafe on Sunday, August 15 from 2 to 4:30 p.m. at the Forks Community Center on Zucksville Road, Forks Township (Easton, Pa.).
The event will feature FURR volunteers and fosters with their kittens available for adoption (yes, that you can cuddle) and a variety of cat items for sale, family-friendly cat activities, cat educational opportunities/resources, and refreshments. Admission is $5 per person.
FURR serves the entire Lehigh Valley, Warren County, N.J. and even the Poconos. In its nearly 20 years of existance it has helped thousands of cats. In 2020 alone, FURR matched more than 700 families and cats through adoption and trapping, neutering and returning an additional 700 “community cats” into supported colonies.
With about 25 volunteers and no official building or facilities, FURR has worked with dedicated individuals, Lehigh County Humane Society, Let’s Trap Lehigh Valley, Furry Feet Rescue and a variety of good-hearted local veterinarians. FURR accepts cats when no one else will, including cats adopted from other animal welfare organizations and cats left behind when people are evicted from their homes.
FURR also works with farmers through a free barn cat program and promotes animal companionship for senior citizens through their Senior for Seniors program, where an older adult fosters a senior cat and the organization will provide the cat’s veterinary needs and future care.
All proceeds will benefit the cats, as FURR has no paid staff. People wishing to help can visit felineurbanrescueandrehab.org and fill out a volunteer application. FURR always needs foster families, drivers and trappers.
