Ollie the kitty knows how much trouble cats can get into. He also realizes how hard animal shelters and rescues work to save cats like him who need help. And he’s so thankful too!

Found all alone in a rainstorm behind a local business in Nashua, Iowa, Ollie was crying for help. He was just three months old and very sick. Once in the care of C & W’s Rustic Hollow Shelter, Ollie was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection and he needed to have an eye removed. With this group of dedicated cat rescuers, Ollie was quickly on the road to healing. And you played an important part in helping Ollie find his chance at forever.

How Shopping Saves Lives

This smart ginger cat also knows that rescues and shelters can’t do it without help. And you provide that help when you buy cute stuff for your cat on iHeartCats.com.

every purchase you make donates money to rescues and shelters working hard to care for cats and kittens in need, all thanks to a partnership between iHeartCats.com and Greater Good Charities. This purpose-driven family of charities is “devoted to improving the health and well-being of people, pets, and the planet.” And one of the best ways to serve pets is by filling their food bowls and giving them the comfort of a full belly.

The Rescue Bank, a pet food distribution initiative developed by Greater Good Charities, has been keeping hungry bellies full for over a decade. To date, the Rescue Bank has delivered over 275 million meals to shelters and rescues across the country. And with your help, we can make that number grow by funding more of these much-needed donations to shelters and rescues.

Healthy and Happy with Good Food and Lots of Love

C & W’s Rustic Hollow Shelter works hard to get cats heathy, happy, and in their forever homes. As one of their charges, sweet Ollie kitty found all these things and more.

“Thanks to the great nutrition Ollie was able to have because of Rescue Bank, our Animal Resource Foundation Pet Food Pantry in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and Greater Good. He was adopted by one of our staff and is growing into a very fine and happy kitty.”

But Ollie isn’t the only C & W’s Rustic Hollow Shelter kitty who benefits from the Rescue Bank, because, as they shared, “Rescue Bank and Greater Good make it possible for our shelter to have high-quality food.”

“We work with many special needs animals and without Rescue Bank’s help, it would be a real struggle to continue giving our cats the good quality food made available to us at our Animal Resource Foundation Pet Food Pantry.”

To these charities and you, C & W’s Rustic Hollow Shelter said, “Thank you so much.”
