Strutting for Strays: Organization hosted glow walk to raise money for stray cats

Local

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (WJHL) — A local organization hosted a glow walk on Saturday night in efforts to raise money for stray cats within the community.

Neonatal Kitten Rescue launched the second Stray Cat Night Glow Strut from One Acre Cafe at 603 W. Walnut St., and the funds will go toward spaying and neutering stray cats within that community.

Those who registered for $25 received a T-shirt, and leashed and social dogs were welcome at the event.

News Channel 11 spoke with the event’s organizer, Carolyn Kestner, who said Saturday night’s event raised around $1,000. A handful of people joined in on the mile walk, and the organization hopes to host more in the future.

“We’re thankful for anybody,” Kestner said. “You know, like I said, we’ll take 30 people to start out with, and then we will grow each and every year.”

Neonatal Kitten Rescue strives to save the lives of kittens who end up motherless on the streets or in shelters to give every feline the chance of finding a loving home and living a full life.
