Helping Richardson’s Rescue this Thursday night at Anthony’s on the Hill

Our neighbors Will and Amy want to share a little love this Thursday:

Will Jones and Amy Rivers at Anthony’s on the Hill are donating 100% of their tips from 5pm-9pm on Thursday, March 15th, to help the kitties at Richardson’s Rescue.

As a cat owner, I’d do pretty much anything for my boys. So I was curious why this was important to them:

We have 2 rescue cats, Church, who we got through the SPCA a few years ago, and Mookie, who was a feral kitten wandering alone on a busy street when a friend found him and brought him to me. We realized just how much we loved the kitties when Church was mauled by a dog a few years ago and almost died. We were encouraged to put her down rather than spend the $3000 to have her fractured jaw put back together as well as repair other serious injuries, but we just couldn’t. Mookie came along almost 2 years ago now. He’s awful, wild, insane, sometimes mean, but we adore him regardless. We’ve been through some rough stuff over the last couple years (homelessness, drug addiction, general craziness) but we always made sure we put the kitties first no matter how bad things got, because they helped us through the worst parts of life. And that’s why we want to help other cats, and the humans who love them. Because we know how much of a difference a cat can make for someone and they deserve to be taken care of.


What is Richardson’s Rescue?

Our volunteers reach out to members of the community in need of help with stray and/or feral cat overpopulation due to abandonment and neglect. We participate in Trap, Neuter, Return and pull as many cats or kittens we can with a good demeanor to rehome. It takes a village because without the help of the veterinarians and clinics, donations from the public, dedicated foster volunteers, and a caring community willing to adopt, we wouldn’t be able to save so many lives. Thank you for doing your part.

If you can’t quite make it on Thursday, you can also give through this link.

You guys ROCK! This is awesome and such a wonderful idea. We love Richardson’s Rescue and have supported them for years. They are affiliated with the good people at Central Purrk/Zoomies at 1706 E. Main St., Richmond’s only cat cafe. The only place to enjoy some coffee and pastry and get cuddle time with adoptable kitties. Maybe Anthony’s kind owner will pitch in a bit of the night’s profits. I’ve seen other restaurants put out a special dish where all of the proceeds from the purchase of that dish are donated to the designated charity. Best of luck to you. P.S. Just occurred to me that Will and Amy might be the owners of the Cat Cafe!

I will also be wearing a cool cat shirt Thursday night. That alone should be reason enough to come out.
