Spring/Summer Newsletter

Kitten season is in full swing here in Arlington, Virginia!  As of May, The Arlington Welfare League’s Kitten Academy has reported over 250 kittens in their foster system already. That’s a LOT of kittens, and many come in quite ill. The Chris Griffey Memorial Feline Foundation itself has received over a dozen complicated kitten cases from VA, MD, & DC that needed advanced medical care, and we could not do this without the generous support by our cat loving community.

Your monetary donations help with: 

  • Diagnostics for our critical kittens
  • Advanced hospital care
  • Blood transfusions
  • Vaccines
  • Spay/neuter
  • Microchips
  • And much more!!

With your help, we are able to lower the mortality rate significantly with the medical care these kittens deserve and have them adopted them out to the FUR-ever homes.

You can make a tax deductible donation online here.

We even have a new shop that supports the foundation! We have several cute designs of a few of our previous kittens we cared for in the past. We have T-shirts, tote bags, and stickers that have become quite popular, and a portion of the proceeds from the company goes right back to our kittens! Click here (https://cgmff.threadless.com/) to check it out!


What if you want to help support the CGMFF but don’t want to give a monetary donation or sport some swag? We can always use supplies! Not only do WE benefit from supplies, but we are able to distribute supplies to foster families that are in need of the basics to help get these kittens healthy and adoptable.  

We always need:

  • Unscented baby wipes
  • Kitten Milk Replacer
  • Microfiber swaddling baby blankets
  • Microfiber plush toys for the babies to cuddle against
  • Snuggle Safe Discs
  • Miracle Nipple(both sizes) sets for our tiniest kittens and PET AG Bottle Sets for Kittens

Calling all blood donors!! - Super Hero Cats Wanted!

We are in desperate need of super hero cats who are willing to donate a small amount of blood (3-4 tablespoons) twice per year to help save our kittens. We have a mini blood bank for plasma for our critical babies who benefit greatly from blood products to help boost their immune system, coagulation factors, along with replacing lost proteins and electrolytes. We even can have your cat in our system for whole blood mini transfusions too! Or criteria is as follows:

  • Healthy weight
  • Felv/FIV negative
  • Not on any current medication or have a compromising disease process

What your super hero cat gets in return from our foundation

  • Complimentary exam with Rabies and FVRCP 
  • Blood typing
  • Super Hero-Cat VIP status
  • Lots of TLC and all the free cookies they can eat! 

We cannot thank you enough for your continued support!  Don’t forget to check out our Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/CMGMFF/ to see who you are cheering on this year!
