Furries of Blue Ridge Furfare, we are pleased to present our first year charity: Asheville Cat Weirdos!
Asheville Cat Weirdos originated as a Facebook group in March of 2016 for sharing cute cat photos and evolved into a 501(3)(c) non profit dedicated to the welfare of cats. ACW operates an Emergency Fund for cat owners that find themselves without the funds to treat their kitty companions. Last year alone this organization helped 132 cats and raised a total of $38,814.52!
Be sure to check out the Asheville Cat Weirdos table in the DoubleTree Biltmore, right beside our Main Events room. Fundraising merchandise and even some courtyard games will be in operation all weekend! We are thrilled to support a cause that is truly worth purring over.
