Animal shelters across the country are once again teaming up with NBC and Telemundo stations to find loving homes for pets in need with the Clear The Shelters pet adoption and donation campaign.
The stations’ month-long “Adopt & Donate” effort will feature virtual pet adoptions and make it easy for people to donate online to participating shelters and rescues. The campaign runs from Aug. 23 through Sept.19, 2021.
Clear The Shelters is an annual, nationwide pet adoption campaign that is spearheaded by NBCUniversal Local, a division of NBCUniversal. Every year, NBCUniversal Local’s NBC and Telemundo owned stations, plus affiliated stations, partner with animal shelters and rescues in their communities to host Clear The Shelters events.
In June of 2021, we posted about Hercules on our Facebook page:
This sweet kitty was in pain and needed entropion eye surgery on both his eyes. We added a fundraiser campaign to the post to help cover the expense of his surgery.
Entropion is a genetic condition in which a portion of the eyelid is inverted or folded inward against the eyeball. This results in irritation and scratches to the cornea — the front surface of the eye — leading to corneal ulceration, or corneal perforation. It can also leave dark-colored scar tissue to build up over the wound (pigmentary keratitis). These factors may cause a loss or decrease in vision.
We couldn’t wait, so Hercules got his surgery and by July, he had recovered well enough to finally announce to the world he was ready for his forever home!
Sweet Hercules had a rough start to his life. Found trying to survive on the streets with a painful eye condition, his eyes are now surgically repaired & require no follow-up or medications. He’s such a sweet boy! He’s around 2 yrs old, vetted and ready for a home. He loves attention & would love a home of his own.
Then in August, something magical happened! Hercules got adopted!
Now his name is Yams because he is such a sweet potato. Congratulations Yams, we wish you and your new family happiness and joy!
Drum roll please… the winner of the Twice the 12 days of Christmas holiday raffle is Jennifer Ruby with Thomas K being the cat with the most votes! Congratulations Jennifer! We hope you enjoy the fantastic wine basket.
Beyond Nine Cat Rescue runs solely on donations from generous supporters. To those who participated, we are very grateful for your contributions!

SPONSOR A HOMELESS CAT THIS HOLIDAY SEASON AND YOUR DONATION IS DOUBLED!!
A very generous donor has agreed to match every sponsorship donation we receive, dollar for dollar!
$25=$50 $50=$100 $100=$200
To celebrate, we are also doubling the 12 days of Christmas. Each day from December 1st through the 24th we’ll be posting photos of our cats and kittens. You will have the opportunity to sponsor the cat of your choice throughout the month, and you may sponsor as many cats as you wish, as many times as you wish.
A sponsorship is a one-time gift made in honor of a homeless cat at Beyond Nine Cat Rescue. When you sponsor a homeless cat, you help that cat in ways that you can’t even imagine. With more than 100 cats currently being cared for at our shelter and in foster homes, you’re sure to find one whose story tugs at your heart.
On Christmas Day we’ll tally up each cat’s donations. Everyone who donated to the cat with the most donations will be entered into a drawing to win a wine basket worth over $100….or a $100 gift card if the winner is a non-local. We’ll announce the lucky winner on Christmas Day.
So, bring twice the joy to homeless cats this holiday season! Make a lifesaving donation today and your gift will be DOUBLED!!

Got plans for Black Friday this year? We have a fun activity you can do! Beyond Nine Cat Rescue has been chosen to be a recipient of a donation this holiday season from the #PawsOnBlackFriday campaign!
The Healthy Paws Foundation is encouraging all pet parents to take a pledge to pause and spend extra time with their pets. It’s completely free to take the pledge, and for every pledge, the Foundation will donate $10, up to $30,000. The total donation amount will be divided amongst five rescue organizations and Beyond Nine Cat Rescue was selected to be one of the five! This means our nonprofit will be eligible for up to $6,000 if the campaign reaches the maximum goal of $30,000.
You can also help us reach the maximum donation amount by sharing this campaign with your friends and family. It’s easy! Just share a photo of your pet* using #PawsOnBlackFriday or if you’d like, copy and paste the text below:

Beyond Nine Cat Rescue was made aware of at least 15 cats abandoned in a house in Cooper City, FL. The woman who had kept a few of them as pets had passed away a few years ago and the cats were left in her house.
Someone would stop by to leave them dry food yet they received no medical care, no proper kitty litter or cleaning of the home, and none were spayed or neutered so the number of cats multiplied.
Most of the cats are undernourished, covered in fleas and mange, some have open wounds, some have lost an eye to infection or issues from possible inbreeding in the house.
We were able to bring six of the most in-need cats to our shelter and have been working hard to rehabilitate them medically and mentally.
Some are a bit shy and scared yet we’re socializing them with love and petting and it’s working. They’re responding well and coming back to life.
With a little luck and some patience, we hope they’ll get to a point where they can be adopted into loving homes so they can continue to get the care and attention that they have missed out on all this time!
Vet visits, medications, surgeries, transportation, rehabilitation, food and shelter… it all adds up! We have been really busy (during a pandemic no less!) and our coffers have been depleted. We urgently need your help!
