“We are honored to be named a 2020 Top-Rated Nonprofit,” says Jan Rich, President of For the Love of Cats. “We are proud of our accomplishments this year, including distributing over 10,000 lbs. of dog and cat food to help people in need to keep their pets during this pandemic.”
The Top-Rated Nonprofit Award is based on the rating and number of reviews that For the Love of Cats received from volunteers, donors and aid recipients. Shyan’s review from July 2020 reads: “For the Love of Cats are literally miracle workers and the nicest people I’ve met yet. They’ve helped ensure we can keep our kittens, and make sure they’re healthy and safe. Through all the stress during the pandemic, they helped take this worry off my mind and did it at a speed that I could never have dreamed of. All my cats have been recovering nicely, and I owe it all to Jim and Jan for being so kind. They settled all my worries, answered every question I had, and all while being extremely friendly.”
“For the Love of Cats is a great example of a nonprofit making a real difference in their community,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, “Their award is well-deserved recognition not only of their work, but the tremendous support they receive, as shown by the many outstanding reviews they have received from people who have direct experience working with For the Love of Cats.”
