Woo hoo! R-CATS is an Amazon Smile charity

The R-CATS Program is now a registered charity with Amazon Smile! I’ve volunteered for them for several years, and they do a lot of good Trap/Neuter/Vaccinate/Return (TNVR) work in the Rome, NY area.

I don’t need to justify my Amazon.com habit, but if I ever do, I’ll say that I’m doing it for the cats!

If you’re not familiar with it, Amazon Smile is a product of Amazon.com that donates 0.5% of eligible purchases to the not-for-profit organization of the your choice (as long as they’re registered with Smile). The Smile website carries, for all intents and purposes, all of the products as the parent website, with the same prices and user experience. Not all items are eligible for a Smile donation, but those that are have the notation, “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages in the box on the right (you have to be signed in to see if the item is eligible). There are nearly a million charitable organizations participating, and it’s easy to sign up to support R-CATS; there is even a bookmark you can install on your toolbar, depending on your browser.

R-CATS is listed under its full name, which is Rome Cat Assistance Tlc Society Inc.

If you have a favorite not-for-profit organization (even if it isn’t R-CATS, I suppose), you can see if they participate. If they don’t, get them on board!

The power of Tigger compels you. Seriously, kitties like him will benefit.
