Many thanks to Marian and Stephanie, who presented a $2,500 check and several hand-made cat cozy blankets and dog bandanas to RASKC on May 5, 2016 from the Xerox Community Involvement Program (XCIP). This money will go to helping the vulnerable animals in RASKC’s care.

Marian said, “We made a total of 15 beds, finding some fun kitty-themed fabric and pairing it up with a complimentary solid color.  It was an easy task and we had no problem working on our cat beds while watching TV at home, etc.  It was great knowing that our project would be used to keep some kitties cozy as they waited for their forever homes.  The fabric scraps were used to make cat toys.  We were also able to find some fun poly-cotton fabric for dog bandanas because we didn’t want our dog friends to be left out.”

Marian and Stephanie were inspired to make this donation, in part, because Marian had adopted her wonderful cat Luna in 2008 from RASKC/ KCACC.

Marian describes her kitty in this way, “She’s an unusual looking cat, a gray and buff tabby, polydactyl with a funny stub tail.  She loves showing off her belly and relaxing in my lap.  Luna is a clever girl, so her favorite toys are puzzles that dispense treats where she purrs and purrs as she works to get a reward.  She likes being an only kitty.  Her favorite pass time is napping, and I can always count on her to greet me when I come home – where she waits halfway up the stairs for some pets before leading me to her food dish.  She’s altogether an awesome cat and I’m so glad I found her at Regional Animal Services of King County.”

The Xerox Community Involvement Program has generously donated to RASKC every year since 2012.
