The Hub City Animal Project is holding a fundraiser that will have everyone cheering!

Teaming up with the local brewer RJ Rockers, the fundraiser is set up to showcase pet owners furry friends through a photo contest that will include both cats and dogs. The winner will have their furry friend proudly displayed on the label for a special batch that the brewery is making just for the Hub City Animal Project fund raiser.

Brew Bash To Meet The Contestants

We were able to attend the Brew Bash at RJ Rockers brewery over the weekend and it had quite a nice turnout. I was a little dismayed that they didn’t have a ‘chicken category‘. With our chickens out of the running it felt like we would be sidelined for entering.

We got home and as I was grumbling about having to move the cat from my chair every time I wanted to sit down, it finally occurred to me that we could enter Ulysses! When we bought our house, the then unnamed cat was convinced that it belonged here. So in a round about way, we actually are adoptive pet owners. Aside from feeding her on a regular basis she has literally become part of the family.

Using some fencing boards I was able to assemble a small ‘cat house’ to keep her out of the elements. For her part, she has done more then just grace us with her mere presence. She has felt the need to display her affection by bringing small animals that she hunted to our back door. This has ranged from everything like a small lizard to a large squirrel (we had a talk about that one).

The Hub City Animal Project advocates for the health, happiness and connecting pets with owners to provide them a safe home. If you would like to be a part of this animal rescue effort then you can reach out to them through their site.

  1. The final results are in, Ulysses came in 5th place in the cat category! That’s pretty awesome in our book :) The total money received was $15,445.00. Wow!!!

    Thank you everyone for sharing and voting for this worthy fundraiser!

  2. This rescue fundraiser is beneficial in more than one way. Cats who once spent an extended period of time either on the streets or in shelters before being rescued — particularly those deprived of food in the past — are most likely to resource guard in their adoptive homes. By providing a ‘safe’ environment for these animals, they will be more receptive to other pets and humans.
    Best of luck Ulysses!

    1. I was never much of a cat person myself but after awhile they do grow on you. It wasn’t until Silke pointed out that I was ‘spoiling her’, did it finally dawn on me that there was a certain level of emotion going into it. Uylsses is currently (as of this time) at number five.

  3. Greetings! I saw your blog post and was impressed with the outreach that your community has. Your cat is truly a winner. What was more fascinating to me is your cat’s name. Did you know that Ulysses is a novel by Irish writer James Joyce, first published in book form in 1922! 100 year anniversaries have never been sweeter. Stylistically dense and exhilarating, it is generally regarded as a masterpiece and has been the subject of numerous volumes of commentary and analysis. The novel is constructed as a modern parallel to Homer’s Odyssey.

    Good luck with the fundraiser!

  4. What a great cause. It is really nice to see that your whole community is coming together for this. I hope she (your cat) wins!
