I reported back in July about the Texas Siamese Rescue in Denton County, Texas; an organization devoted to rescuing Siamese cats and providing them with good homes. Tami Manning and Alisa Lee had taken over the group last year, after its previous owner died. But, when Manning and Lee inherited the organization’s 179 cats, they also inherited its outstanding debt of $244,000. If the duo could raise $40,000 by the end of the year, that amount would be waived from the overall debt amount. Now, though, Texas Siamese Rescue is facing closure by year end, as the group hasn’t been able to recoup its losses.
They’ve been able to reduce the number of cats, however, through foster homes and have been able to pay back $10,000 so far. A donor has agreed to match up to $5,000 in donations; at this point, up to $3,500 has been matched. But, there’s still the possibility the group may have to euthanize some of the cats if homes can’t be found for them.
