Cat Fanciers’ Association Announces $8,000 Commitment for Hurricane Relief
October 4, 2017
The Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) earmarked $8,000 for cats and their owners affected by recent hurricanes.
"Relief efforts will be centralized through our respective regional directors," Mark Hannon, president of CFA said. "The board voted to immediately allocate $4,000 to the CFA geographic regions that include the states of Florida, Louisiana and Texas. An additional $2,000 will be distributed to the CFA’s Breeder Assistance." The Breeder Assistance Program was created for breeders seeking help in situations out of their control, including acts of nature that result in temporary loss of homes.
According to Hannon, the remaining $2,000 will be held for future relief as needs are identified.
CFA has a long history of proactively supporting and assisting cat owners and breeders in times of disaster.
