Latham Foundation Awards Grant to Tabby Town
The Latham Foundation for the Promotion of Humane Education has awarded a $5,000 grant to Tabby Town - Friends for Felines, Inc. to help to provide a cat or kitten companion to veterans and those in the military. Adoption fees will be waived.
Founded in 1918 by Edith and Milton Latham, The Latham Foundation is unique among the many organizations that exist today. One of their goals is to "To foster a deeper understanding of and sympathy with man’s relations — the animals — who cannot speak for themselves." It is with deepest gratitude that we thank Latham for supporting our work.
We are excited to announce that the $5,000 award will be matched by Tabby Town Co-founders Carolyn and John Yurtchuk! This is in honor of their uncle, Veteran Richard Mleczko. It will further complement the $50 per cat adoption support offered through the Robert F. Fahey Veterans Fund.
To perpetuate this offering for years to come, Tabby Town is announcing the creation of the Veterans Wall of Service. For every donation of $25 or more, a red, white or blue plaque with the name of your veteran honoree will be added to the wall. Currently the wall has Officer Mleczko's 48 star flag and First Lieutenant Fahey's photo.
Donations can be made to: Veterans Wall of Honor
Please add a note indicating the name of your veteran honoree and their branch of service. 🇺🇸🐾
Purrs from all of us!
