I would like to thank everyone who helped out with the “All Fur One” fundraiser. It means a great deal to our furry four legged companions. Those who missed it stay tuned we have another fundraiser coming up that I think you all will like. We are adding a new tab to our web site titled “Fundraiser”. This will be used as a quick way for our community of followers to keep up on where we are and what we are doing.
Again many thanks:

We started out helping primarily cats because we worked with the TNR group and because there were no other rescues or groups focusing on cats in this area. We have gradually branched out into dogs and the occasional rabbit, guinea pig or box turtle, as we’ve been contacted about them. If we have knowledgeable foster home that has room, we will do what we can to help.
Initially, we were under the 501c3 non-profit umbrella of the San Juan Animal League (Oct 2011-Dec 2016) but are now in the final steps of getting our own 501c3 designation. At present, we have our State of New Mexico Not-for-Profit Business number and our EIN for Federal. Still filling out forms & gathering required information to submit for final federal status.
As we enter a new and exciting chapter in the life of OHCAAT we would like to take a moment to thank SJAL for all of their support for the last few years. We will do them proud!
There is a heck of a lot to learn and do when setting up a website from scratch. I kind of had no idea until I threw myself into it. There are so many options for customization that I get a wee bit overwhelmed with possibilities. So I am sure that I will be making a lot of changes here and there over the next weeks and months (and years) as I learn better how to best utilize this space to further the mission of OHCAAT.
