June Buggie Rants!

June Buggie Updates You on the Caboodle Ranch Cats

MEOW! My name is June Buggie, and I have an important announcement!

June Buggie here with something to say!

Rumpy received an email from Olivia Melikhov of the ASPCA asking me to get the word out about the following:

The ASPCA will be hosting a large-scale adoption event in Jacksonville, Florida, on August 11 & 12 to help find loving homes for the hundreds of cats rescued from Caboodle Ranch in February. It’s been nearly five months since the cats were rescued, and they can now legally adopt out the animals to responsible, forever homes.

These kitties need YOU to play bubbles with them.

There are hundreds of cats to choose from. Some of these cats have special needs, including barn cats and those that are FIV+ or have feline leukemia.

So if you live nearby, come to the ASPCA Temporary Shelter at 2580 West 1st Street in Jacksonville, FL 32254 Saturday and Sunday between the hours of 10 AM and 5 PM.  Bring a government-issued photo ID (driver’s license, passport, non-driver ID, etc.) proof of address, and a pet carrier.

These kitties are waiting for you to give them a loving, forever home.

These adoptions will be fee-waived. In addition, all of the cats that are available for adoption will be micro-chipped and spayed/neutered.

And if you’re in the Sarasota or Tampa Bay areas, you can also adopt a former resident of Caboodle Ranch.  Smaller, separate adoption events for the Caboodle Ranch cats will also be held that same weekend in Sarasota (hosted by Cat Depot) and in the Tampa Bay area (hosted by the Humane Society of Pinellas in cooperation with SPCA Tampa Bay).

This kitty is ready for the Olympics!

So PLEASE share this information, and let’s help these cats find forever homes.  


There’s even babies in need of forever homes!


Here’s more info at the ASPCA blog.

  7. I just know many of them will find a forever home on that weekend. I’ll feel bad for those that don’t.

  8. If I lived in Florida, I would definitely consider it. I’ve been thinking about getting a cat but I would really have to work with my dog Pierson because he has such a high prey drive.

  12. There are so many strays (orphans) that need homes. I live in L.A. and I’ve never lived in a city with so many stray dogs and feral cats! It’s a disgrace. Hooray for Rumpy! Thanks for all your efforts. Russell
