Aslan's Cats is a small sanctuary for cats that have been diagnosed with the debilitating Feline Leukemia Virus located in the Catskills of New York.
Formed in 2010 by a like-minded group of animal rescuers from New York, the all-volunteer organization provides care and comfort for the “forgotten” cats that have very few places to go. They are considered forgotten as they are routinely euthanized in shelters and veterinary clinics due to the fact that they require vigilant, time consuming, costly care because of their delicate and compromised immune systems. Although they can live a full and happy life, not many individuals are willing to fully understand the disease and put in the time it takes to properly care for these 'special needs' felines.
Sadly, the cats are not the only ones who have been forgotten. The organization, one of the few that is willing to care for Feline Leukemia cats, has suffered one of its worst years for donations and cannot afford to pay their very large veterinary bill they have acquired over the last six months. They are desperately reaching out to the public for support so that they can continue to provide a safe haven for more animals and if they don’t get help, they will have to shut their doors to the public.
As a former Shelter Support Grant recipient in 2012, Aslan’s Cats reached out to us in an urgent attempt to get find some relief. An emergency grant from SPCAI was expedited to the organization, but it will only make a small dent to the funding that they require to stay in operation.
