The Blood Alliance
We have a lot planned for this Sunday, December 21! We’ll be open for extended hours (12:30 – 4:30 PM) and The Blood Alliance will on on site taking blood donations.

Anyone who donates blood this day will receive half-off admission for December 21! If everyone would donate three pints of blood a year, we would never have a shortage of blood. By taking the time to donate this Sunday, you’ll be saving lives.

If you think you will attend and donate, you can reserve your blood donation time slot by clicking here.

On top of this awesome event, we’ll also be giving out enrichments for our animals! Beginning at 3:15 PM the cats will receive holiday-themed enrichment toys filled with catnip. You won’t want to miss this!

Holiday GiftsAre you looking for a unique Christmas gift for a friend or family member? Adopting one of our animals makes a fun present that lasts for an entire year. You get to choose from four different levels of adoption, each with its own benefits. With a picture of your resident, a plaque at the main entrance, and quarterly email updates, an adoption for Christmas is a fun way to give a little bit of Catty Shack Ranch to someone.

Halloween 2014: The Recap

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014 0 COMMENTS


DSC01723halloween14_68halloween14_68On the weekends of October 10th and 17th, Catty Shack Ranch had our 9th annual Haunted Forest. More than 2000 visitors came out to enjoy arts and crafts, our scary Haunted Forest, and of course the animals! All of our animals enjoyed seeing the costumes; it actually acts as a safe enrichment for them. Our visitors enjoyed the decorations, games, and the haunted trail which included scare actors and more than a few surprises!

Congratulations to Sherri R., who won the “Guess the Pumpkin’s Weight” game, and to Robin T., who won the “Guess the Number of Eyeballs” in the jar!

halloween14_14Special thanks to our Halloween Committee and to the volunteer groups who helped to make this event possible: HHF-FSCJ, UNF SAE (Sigma Alpha Epsilon), the 501st Legion (including Storm Troopers and Darth Vader), Girl Scout Troop 1103, and Letz-Face-It (who provided face painting)! It was a lot of work, but this was our best Halloween yet!
