Meezer’s Mission Cat Rescue
Daniel Cruz said this is his second time to take part in the fundraising event.
He met Phuong Conway, director and CEO of the cat rescue organization, three years ago and felt his company could give to Meezer’s.
Cruz is a cat lover and has some of his own.
“We don’t really have the time or space to take animals in and I admire those that do,” Cruz said. “I know she rescues hundreds of cats a year.”
Last year Cruz raised $501; his goal this year is $1,000, he said.
Meezer’s is a foster-based rescue dedicated to helping cats and kittens in need in Southeast Texas, according to their Facebook page.
Tickets are $1 each and each ticket purchased equals one entry into the raffle.
You can find information on how to enter on Cruz Events Facebook page.
The raffle ticket sale goes through Dec. 15 and the drawing will be done live on Facebook on Dec. 16.
Other Ways to Help
Simply spaying and neutering animals helps cut down on the number of strays in need of rehoming, and also adds to their life span, according to The Humane Society of Southeast Texas. Check with your local veterinarian for potential coupons to help cut the cost on having an animal spayed or neutered.
