MEOW! My name is June Buggie, and I have an important announcement!
Rumpy received an email from Olivia Melikhov of the ASPCA asking me to get the word out about the following:
The ASPCA will be hosting a large-scale adoption event in Jacksonville, Florida, on August 11 & 12 to help find loving homes for the hundreds of cats rescued from Caboodle Ranch in February. It’s been nearly five months since the cats were rescued, and they can now legally adopt out the animals to responsible, forever homes.
There are hundreds of cats to choose from. Some of these cats have special needs, including barn cats and those that are FIV+ or have feline leukemia.
So if you live nearby, come to the ASPCA Temporary Shelter at 2580 West 1st Street in Jacksonville, FL 32254 Saturday and Sunday between the hours of 10 AM and 5 PM. Bring a government-issued photo ID (driver’s license, passport, non-driver ID, etc.) proof of address, and a pet carrier.
These adoptions will be fee-waived. In addition, all of the cats that are available for adoption will be micro-chipped and spayed/neutered.
And if you’re in the Sarasota or Tampa Bay areas, you can also adopt a former resident of Caboodle Ranch. Smaller, separate adoption events for the Caboodle Ranch cats will also be held that same weekend in Sarasota (hosted by Cat Depot) and in the Tampa Bay area (hosted by the Humane Society of Pinellas in cooperation with SPCA Tampa Bay).
So PLEASE share this information, and let’s help these cats find forever homes.
Here’s more info at the ASPCA blog.

These pictures sure are a lot prettier than the CR pics, eh?
Yes, they’ve had lots of good care since then.
They are all gorgeous and I hope they all get loving homes
I sure hope so…. There are several hundred to place.
I hope lots of people turn up who will really care for them.
What beautiful cats, I hope they find homes
Those kitties are sooo cute!
Cats scare me..but it doesn’t mean I want people to be mean to them..that’s horrible!
I hope they find good homes!
Good luck kitties – you deserve good homes!
I just know many of them will find a forever home on that weekend. I’ll feel bad for those that don’t.
If I lived in Florida, I would definitely consider it. I’ve been thinking about getting a cat but I would really have to work with my dog Pierson because he has such a high prey drive.
I’ve just shared this info on twitter and Facebook, dear June Buggie. I hope that it helps these lovely kitties to find a forever home and a lovely family! 🙂
I shared on facebook June Buggie, hope it helps.
Oh! They are soo cute 🙂
There are so many strays (orphans) that need homes. I live in L.A. and I’ve never lived in a city with so many stray dogs and feral cats! It’s a disgrace. Hooray for Rumpy! Thanks for all your efforts. Russell
Thank you for being so loving and generous with your time to help these special animals find a home. As a pet lover, and a finder of homes for other animals I appreciate you! 🙂
Great information. Hope we can do as good a job of getting the word out. paw pats, Savannah
I shall hope that they all get the homes they need
We hope all these precious cats get loving, forever homes during the event. Hugs and nose kisses
Kitties needing cuddles!
Thanks for the update.
(OK to use some of the pix and link back here in a reminder post just before event?)
All of them are hoping to float like bubbles into someone’s heart.
YAY! Did you know Sparkle’s mom’s even flying in to be there for the event? COOL!
That IS way cool!!!!
Yes, it’s true – she is flying out… although I have instructed her to only bring back PHOTOS of the cats, not any of the cats themselves… I hope she was paying attention when I said that!
Totally awesome! Thank your mom for me.
Those are some adorable cats! We sure hope they all go to wonderful homes!
Hoping that they all find their forever homes buddy!
Best wishes for the cats to find furr-ever homes.
I do hope they find loving homes June Buggie.
P.S. I would love to play bubbles with the cats – it looks like fun!
Wish I lived closer, so I could help. Adorable photo’s by the way. Makes me want to hop on a plane and come over.
Oh those poor kitties! And the babies are so cute. Wish we could do more to help!
Great post!!! Great photos, too! xo Berner Girls
