Tommy Fund Month

March is Tommy Fund Month at the Greater New Haven Cat Project!

During the month of March, the GNHCP is raising awareness of our Tommy Fund; a special account for donations set aside for extraordinary veterinary and care expenses for cats that are found or helped by the Center. This is our 'rainy day fund' for cats who need special medical procedures, medications, or life-saving surgeries. 

We are raising $5000 in march to keep the Tommy Fund going so we can continue to help cats that need extraordinary care so that they can go home to loving families.

How To Help

By donating to the Tommy Fund, you will enable us to aid the many special needs cats that may not otherwise be able to receive the care they need. Donations to the Tommy Fund are tax-deductible and can be sent to GNHCP, P.O. Box 1432, New Haven, CT 06506 or sent online by clicking the button below:

History

The Tommy Fund began in 1999 to raise money to pay for a crucial ultrasound for a homeless four-month old kitten rescued from the streets in New Haven. The Greater New Haven Cat Project, Inc. (GNHCP) was able to raise the $200 necessary to provide Tommy with the ultrasound. After medical treatment, rest and lots of love from his adopted parents, Tommy is a happy, healthy and extremely playful adult cat. GNHCP has continued the Tommy Fund in order to provide care to other rescued cats requiring special care. Through generous contributions, GNHCP has been able to help many special needs cats, including those who have serious illnesses or injuries. Money raised will help cover veterinary care beyond the spay/neuter and vaccinations that GNHCP provides to all rescued cats. Extraordinary care includes diagnostic procedures (x-rays, ultrasounds, biopsies), as well as surgical procedures and on-going medical treatments (medicines, special foods, emergency veterinary visits). Tommy is a wonderful success story, but there are many other cats with special needs that require extraordinary care. GNHCP would like to be able to give every cat a chance to receive the medical treatment it needs. 

 

About tOmmy

Tommy was a homeless four-month old kitten rescued from the streets in New Haven. During his first check-up, the veterinarian discovered a severe heart murmur and an ultrasound was needed to diagnose the problem correctly. The Greater New Haven Cat Project, Inc. (GNHCP) was able to raise the $200 necessary to provide Tommy with the ultrasound. After medical treatment, rest and lots of love from his adopted parents, Tommy is a happy, healthy and extremely playful adult cat. Tommy is a wonderful success story, but there are many other cats with special needs that require extraordinary care. GNHCP would like to be able to give every cat a chance to receive the medical treatment it needs.
