February 7, 2017, Miss Kitty’s Long Branch Ranch Incorporated (LBRI) officially became a nonprofit organization registered with the state of Florida and Division of Corporations. January 20, 2020, the Secretary of State in Oklahoma recognized these credentials and approved our operations there as well. Our goal is to help homeless cats by providing TNVR services and food and shelter for those who stick around.
TNVR is for Trap, Neuter, Vaccinate, Release, with the idea that the cats are released back in to the wild, free to resume their normal activities without adding to the overpopulation problem. It works, the only problem is, most of these cats have come back to where they were trapped in search of food, and I can’t say no. Dave can though, and sometimes, he’s real good at it.
“No, we are not taking in any more cats,” he emphatically and sternly said to me one day late in 2016.
“Well then Miss Kitty will,” I said while petting her, “won’t you, Miss Kitty,” I continued, talking to the cat.
Dave rolled his eyes, said something like, “Whatever,” and that was that. I drew up the paperwork, filed with the state, and on February 7, 2017, it was official. Through LBRI, we would do what we could for homeless cats in our area.
My parents were the biggest supporters. They passed away in 2018 and 2019. In a way, they are still the biggest supporters. It is their stuff I am selling to help fund LBRI, and I can not do it without your help! As soon as I have everything listed, I will be sure to let you know.
