Help Save Kitty Lives by Supporting ‘The Cat Rescuers’ on Kickstarter

Makers of this important documentary are raising funds to finish a rough cut for festivals.

Meet Sassee Walker, Claire Corey, Stuart Siet and Tara Green. These activists trap, neuter and return (TNR) in Brooklyn, with the goal of reducing the number of abandoned and feral cats — estimated at 1 million — living on the streets of New York City. They are also the subjects of The Cat Rescuers, a documentary being made by award-winning filmmakers Rob Fruchtman and Steven Lawrence.

A passion project for all involved, the filmmakers are raising funds via Kickstarter to complete a rough cut of the documentary that can be submitted to film festivals, where they hope to find additional backers. The campaign, which ends May 25, has already raised nearly $8,000 of its $50,000 goal.

Give the Kickstarter trailer a watch to see if this might be a project you can support:

In addition to raising awareness of the homeless cat population, not only in NYC but around the world, the documentary shines a spotlight on the heroic work of rescuers and shows the many sacrifices Sassee, Claire, Stuart and Tara make in their lives for their love of animals.
