End of the Year Newsletter from Casey's House


Dear Friend of Caseys House,

Last year at this time we were really worried about a little fellow named Luray whom we had gotten quite
attached to. He came in as a kitten with his two sisters and one brother. His siblings were quickly adopted
but he could not be put up for adoption due to a birth defect that effected his chest cavity. It was doubtful
that he would survive much past kittenhood. However, thanks to your outpouring of financial support and a
wonderful vet in Richmond Luray received his needed surgery to correct his birth defect. Luray is now the
very happy (and terribly spoiled) cat of the Black Horse Inn in Warrenton, VA. A very happy ending for a very
deserving cat!

We now ask you to once again reach down into your pockets and help another very deserving cat named Zena.
From the get go Zena has had terrible problems with the herpes virus constantly attacking her eyes. Despite
vigorous daily treatments she has lost sight in both eyes and the herpes virus still attacks. We need to have
them removed, this is a costly surgery but thanks again to Helping Hands of Richmond we are able to get it at
a discounted price but still the cost is more than what our regular budget allows. Between the cost of the
surgery, after care, and travel expenses Zenas treatment will cost about $900.

You can support Caseys House (and Zena) in a variety of ways:

? Tax deductible gifts can be made either with the enclosed donation form or through our paypal account, a link
to which is on our website, via our donation page.

? igive is an online shopping portal that donates a portion of your purchase to Caseys House if you click on
the Shop Online Through IGive line found on our donation page at our website

? We are collecting aluminum cans. Bagged cans can be brought to either Petco on Saturdays (by 5PM) or any
time to our Bluemont location. Call Cindy at 703-220-9965 for more information.

We look forward to the upcoming year and know with help from our wonderful supporters, that we will be able to
continue our low cost spay/neuter program and to provide sanctuary for many of the old and hard to adopt cats
in our region. We especially look forward to being able to tell Zenas happily ever after story next year!

Together we can make this world a better place for all our feline friends! Thank-you for your support!
