Our May/June updates are now online at www.OurPlaceToPaws.com. Featured is an article saying good-bye to our beloved Cali, who left us this month, causing a bit of heartbreak. But we also have some much happier updates: this month's winning reader photo, a new Animal Columnist article, a new Kids Corner art project and more.

Defenders of Wildlife Needs Your Help to Save Polar Bears

Scientists say that global warming and habitat loss could drive America's polar bears to extinction by the end of the century. Yet, so far, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has stopped short of reversing an 11th hour regulatory change by the Bush/Cheney administration that denies polar bears important Endangered Species Act protections from the threat of global warming. I just sent a message urging Secretaries Salazar and Locke to take action for our polar bears, and I hope you will too. It's easy to help just send your message online at: http://action.defenders.org/may9deadline

Donate and Send a "Mother and Kitten" eCard to your Mom this Mother's Day!

From Alley Cat Allies"

Did you know this Sunday is Mother's Day? As the holiday rapidly approaches, we all want to find the best way to tell the important women in our lives how much we love them. We want to give them something that shows we truly understand who they are and what they cherish.
If your mother is a cat lover, there is no better gift than one that protects the beautiful animals you both love. Share your love of cats with your mother by donating to Alley Cat Allies in her honor and sending her a "Mother & Kitten" eCard on this special holiday.


Simply make a gift of at least $5 to Alley Cat Allies at our online Tribute Center and select any of our special "Mother and Kitten" eCards to send to your mother.

You'll be telling your mom (or another special woman in your life) that you care for her while giving the gift of life to cats nationwide.


Over the past 18 years, the generous support of our donors has enabled Alley Cat Allies to protect and improve cats' lives throughout the country. With your help, we can change the world for cats. So please, take part by making a donation and sending a special Mother's Day eCard today.


Thank you for your commitment to protecting and improving the lives of cats.


For the cats,

Becky Robinson, President
