2017 Kennel Comforter Update
Donation to the P.G. County Animal Shelter
WOW and you thought we didn't need you anymore. Well, we need you still and we hope we can count on you again for this new project.
So many citizens happen to see the comforters and they kept asking if they were for sale. Unfortunately we said no but that made us think that this would be a great project to sell at some upcoming events as a fundraiser to help us with our vet costs and pet supply cost so........
We have purchased some very cute fabric to make the comforters and now we need you to help us. We need cutters and sewers. Please let me know what you would like to do. We don't plan on having a lot, just a few to test the waters. The first event will be "Walk for the Animals" on April 30th at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis.
Please contact me as soon as possible so we can get this project started. Thanks so much for anything you can do for the animals.

Community cats are free-roaming cats seen in communities nationwide. These cats are stray, lost or abandoned. Some may be friendly, though many are unsocialized, feral and cannot be adopted.

As of June 2015, Maryland surveyed the counties to produce the report linked below (PDF format). Prince George's County begins on page 43.
Bowie, the city, was originally called Huntington City. In 1880, the Maryland legislature changed the name to Bowie in honor of Oden Bowie who was the president of the Baltimore & Potomac Railroad.
About the Kitty Caregiver Meetings
We hold bimonthly Caregiver Meetings at convenient locations in Bowie, such as the Bowie Gymnasium (4100 Northview Dr., Bowie, MD 20716), or the Bowie Kenhill Center (2614 Kenhill Dr., Bowie, MD 20715). During these meetings, we discuss rescues, our work with community cats and colonies; upcoming Bowie Cause for Paws events; results of the adoption shows and other events; network on best practices; share details of our experiences as caretaker; and much, much more. If you sign up as a volunteer, or as a caregiver, we will email a reminder prior to each meeting. Meeting hours are normally 7-9pm.
