Animal Lovers Get Together For a Good Cause in Luzerne County

WILKES-BARRE -- Cat lovers united in Luzerne County on Saturday night to benefit Whisker's World.

Whisker's World is a non-profit organization whose volunteers have been caring for homeless animals for over 10 years.

Cat enthusiasts and Whisker's World volunteers spent the night at the Mary Stegmaier Mansion celebrating with delicious food and all things cats.

Volunteers tell Newswatch 16 the great turnout will make sure they can provide life-saving care for even more cats.

"It's just lots of people came forward for this event. We're shocked. We're overwhelmed. It was sold out in three days," said Brenda Buckler, President of Whisker's World.

All of the proceeds from the event went to Whisker's World, who hope to build a shelter to home the animals they rescue until they can get a forever home.

    There is a lot of help out there for people. But many people won’t take it and will decide to do drugs and abuse their kids instead. The legal system gives a lot of rights to parents, even if they’re scum of the earth. Sometimes there’s nothing you can do to help people who don’t want to be helped. But it’s easier to help animals because there’s nobody trying to fight you. They can be sterilized so they don’t reproduce more kits and pups that they can’t take care of………….


    Whiskers World is a 501c3 non-profit, all volunteer organization comprised of a group of animal loving friends who have, for over 10 years, been caring for homeless animals with our own money. Collectively, we have taken care of well over 1,000 cats. We trap, neuter & return them to their colonies. We then continue to care for them, feeding them daily & providing shelter for them. We provide veterinary care when needed, rehabilitate & home any cats that cannot be returned to their existing colonies. Our charity was formed in order to hopefully raise more funds to further our mission & eventually build a shelter so that we can help even more animals live happy, healthy lives.

    I agree Lloyd, these people are friggin NUTS. Cocoa for Cocoa Puffs. How about other ideas that could more benefit our communities like go pick some garbage up along the Susquehanna River. Or go help some people at the homeless shelters. FOR GOD SAKES PEOPLE IT IS A CAT !!!!!! Get a life and stop watching Oparah and Dr. Phil.

    Use your energies for homeless people first. When that problem is solved then you can save the cats.
