Now, being away from my kitties for six weeks has been undeniably one of the hardest things of the summer, particularly with the sudden loss of our cat Sabrina last week (read about it in my latest post here). I am fortunate enough to be surrounded by a wonderful blogging community as well as friends, family and neighbors -- both at home and in Cape May -- which has allowed me to fondly remember Sabrina while being able to stay strong in Cape May.

Let me tell you about Animal Outreach. It is a beautiful, volunteer run 501(c)(3) nonprofit rescue. They are located at 600 Park Blvd in West Cape May, NJ. This location is only temporarily, as they have purchased a piece of land not too far away in which they plan to build an animal sanctuary.

Like all future projects, the new building will take time. Hopefully they will be able to get the facility built within the next few years. They will also be able to house dogs at the building too.

I had an amazing time volunteering at Animal Outreach while I have been on vacation. Even though it was only for about 5 weeks of volunteering, I went plenty of times and always had fun. And it was awesome to get to meet the volunteers who make this rescue all possible. I know from my experience that it couldn't be done without them!
I will enjoy staying on their email list and seeing who is there. I will certainly miss the cats I have met that are still around and hope that they get adopted! And of course, I can't wait to go up to Cape May in the off season and play with all of the kitties!
