Ferndale Cat Shelter is a nonprofit organization only two and a half years old which rescues cats and kittens throughout the community, providing shelter and care for homeless, ill and abandoned animals through a wonderful group of volunteers and foster families. Working hard to find loving, forever homes for their animals, Ferndale Shelter also educates the community on proper care, training and treatment of furry friends through a variety of avenues, including a blog on their website. A fun time can always be found at their Ferndale Cat Café, which enables cat owners and their pets to join together for tea and socializing.

“This cause is very dear to my team,” stated Cheryl Bowker, owner of Bowker Insurance Group. “With colder weather approaching, we want to make sure Ferndale Shelter has the funds they need to care our community’s needy cats and kittens and find them good, warm, loving homes.”

Bowker Insurance hopes to bring greater awareness and support for First Step and Ferndale Cat Shelter by mobilizing their own network of personal and professional contacts from their three area locations to help spread the word about these campaigns.
