ACAT's Rallye Fund

The Rallye Fund, named for the first kitten for whom ACAT provided urgent medical care, is dedicated to helping Alaska kittens and cats that need urgent, vital care because of an accident, illness or birth defect, and after receiving the care, have an excellent chance of quality of life for many years.

Preference for Rallye Fund will be given to

  • Kittens and young cats;
  • Felines that will be rehomed through ACAT;
  • Felines in ACAT’s care that need extraordinary medical care;
  • Felines with excellent chance of full or significant recovery;

GRNTS BDGES 2016_FIN (1)The availability of Rallye Fund monies is contingent on donations. The fund was boosted in the fall of 2016 by a $2,500 grant from the ASPCA's Lil' Bub Fund.  Funds may not be available at any given time. Persons knowing of a kitten or young cat that is in need of assistance may contact ACAT about the availability of funds and how to make an appeal for funding.

  • More Rallye Beneficiaries

    The Rallye Fund has successfully helped several kitties since its inception. Among those:
    • Denali, a 9-month-old kitty with a lacerated leg.
    • Gretel, a 3-year-old spayed dilute tortoiseshell in ACAT's care with stomatitis.
    • Batty, a 2-year-old female with pyometra.
    • Chad, a 5-year-old neutered male cat with an obstruction.
    • Hansel, a 3-year-old black and white neutered male tux in ACAT's care with stomatitis.
    • Campbell, a young adult tabby female, who was found on a trail with a dislocated hip and turned over to ACAT for care and homing.
    Unfortunately, sometimes a kitty dies, despite the assistance. A young kitten named Tortalina surrendered to ACAT died because of bacterial infection that resulted from or perhaps caused a broken leg. In other instances, ACAT's assistance is not primarily monetary but logistical, such as the case of a Kenai man who moved out of state abruptly when his house burned, and needed help being reunited with his cat, Miss Tina. A similar situation saw ACAT helping a former Houston woman recovering her cat. We appreciate our donors and our volunteers who are willing to help kitties in crisis.

    Among those kitties helped by the Rallye Fund is Daisey, who came to ACAT as a seriously impaired kitten September of 2013. No one is sure if Daisey was injured, or if it was a birth defect -- the kitty equivalent of a hair lip. Like Rallye, Daisey's oral condition would have, according to the vets, greatly impacted her quality of life. Thanks to Rallye Fund monies, ACAT was able to pay for surgery for Daisey. She stayed in foster care for her healing, and then went to an adoptive home like any normal kitten.
  • Donating to The Rallye Fund

    ACAT, an IRS 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation, is accepting donations to the Rallye Fund. Any amount is appreciated. This is an all-volunteer organization, and the funds you donate to The Rallye Fund will be earmarked to pay for the medical care and related costs of caring for special-needs cats and kittens like Rallye, who will not survive or cannot be homed without special procedures, yet should be able to live a long, happy life with the extra care.
  • First donation to The Rallye Fund

    Less than a week after Rallye's emergency surgery, we had our first donation to the Rallye Fund, which will help cover Rallye's surgery. The $175 donation was made in the name of the donor family's kitten, Simon, who had a tragically short life. While Simon couldn't be saved from the illness that claimed him, the family gave ACAT the means to help another kitten.
