The shelter that rescued Kismet & Packet needs help. Please go vote!

Posted By on May 28, 2011 at 2:47 pm

Kismet and Packet, as foundlings, were taken in by Cat Angels, a no-kill shelter in Cary, NC, where they spent their first year before I adopted them.

Now, Cat Angels is losing their lease, and is looking for a larger facility.

To aid in this venture, they are competing in the Pepsi “Refresh Everything” challenge for this month, in an effort to receive a $50,000 grant, which will allow them to move to larger quarters and expand their rescue work. For most of the month, they have been atop the leader board, but today they have fallen to #2.

Please, I beg you, go to, click the “Vote for this idea” button, log in via Facebook (assuming you’re a FB user) or create a Pepsi login, and then — this is important — click the Vote button again.

You can also text to vote, by sending 106148 to 73774.

You can do this every day.

Please help.

  2. Is it possible the shelter could do their own fundraiser because from what we’ve seen of the Pepsi challenge,, they could be fundraising while the big shelters are stuffing the ballot box with all their followers. So to speak. Because the amount of votes needed in these “grant” voting things seems to be tremendous. We’d put a link on our blog, maybe even do a post about it, if they decide to fundraise.

      They do fundraisers fairly often – they are completely funded by donations. This grant project is the first thing like this I’ve seen from them.

    We voted for them! and shared the link on our Fb page.
