URRKN is celebrating their first full year in operation, during which time volunteer drivers and coordinators have saved 64 kitties and transported them by car to their new homes.
The Underground Railroad Rescued Kitty Network was started by Tina LaBlanc, a cat lover who was devastated by what happened to Jack the Cat, in hopes that maybe, just maybe, there was a better way of getting kitties from Point A to Point B. Slowly but surely this group took off. There were three successful transports that were organized and completed within the two weeks around the 2011 Christmas holiday. As if pulling together a bunch of strangers wasn’t amazing enough, these folks took time out of their busy schedules at Christmas to help out other people. All for the love of fur.
From those early transports, the group grew and was able to coordinate the many transports that have brought cats in need to their new, loving homes.
The Underground Railroad Rescued Kitty Network welcomes new members to its Facebook group. Members are not required to aid in transport. They can share posts, or just cheer on the group and share in the joy when volunteers work together to get a cat out of a shelter and into a loving home, hundreds of miles away.
