Carbon shelter has outgrown its space for feline population
TIMES NEWS FILE PHOTO Carbon County Friends of Animals has outgrown its space for felines at its present location and is actively seeking a new place.
Carbon County Friends of Animals is looking for a new "furever" home.
Denise Sebelin, president of CCFOA, said recently that the shelter has outgrown its current location at 900 Walnut Ave., Jim Thorpe and the group is actively looking for a new place for the felines. Currently, CCFOA shelters over 100 cats and kittens at the facility.
According to a letter on the CCFOA website regarding a new location, CCFOA is asking for the support of the community in this endeavor.
Sebelin said if anyone has any thoughts on a location, they should call her at DeeZines at (570) 325-4310 or Susan Yaich at the Jim Thorpe Pet Center at (570) 325-8983.
The shelter is also reminding county residents that with the colder temperatures that January usually brings, cats need proper care, such as warm bedding, clean food and fresh water to survive, especially if they are outdoors for long periods of time.
CCFOA is a nonprofit cat shelter that has helped thousands of cats over the years.
In addition to adoptions, the shelter provides low cost spay and neuter programs and other necessities for felines.
It operates primarily on donations from the community. A wish-list of items that the shelter needs is available on its website at www.ccfoa.info. Some wish-list items include bleach, non-clumping cat litter, Purina cat food and kitten chow, cat beds, hand soap, cleaning products, monetary donations, and more.
For more information on contributing to CCFOA or on how to become a volunteer, call the shelter at (570) 325-9400.
