People United for Rescue and Rehabilitation (PURR) WV, Inc. is thrilled to announce that recording artist Lauren Winans, a native West Virginian, recently visited the shelter and filmed a Public Service Announcement (PSA) about spaying and neutering pets with the PURRbabies (see attached photo).
Winans, who has released two singles “Burn a Little More” and “You’re Gonna Luv It” available at iTunes and Amazon.com, stated, “I am a singer/songwriter in Nashville, TN, but I am originally from West Virginia. I am so happy to have found a no kill shelter, locally in WV, that I believe in so much!”
Asked why she got involved in the PSA, Winans revealed, “I fell in love with PURR as soon as I heard about all the wonderful things they do for these cats and kittens! Once I stepped inside the kitty headquarters, I was so excited! The cats are free to roam and play with each other (as long as no one is sick) and all the volunteers are wonderful! If you want to adopt, head to PURR.”
The PSA emphasizes the need to stop unwanted litters by spaying and neutering early and sheltering and adopting cats and kittens. It will be released to local and national media soon. Winans’ website www.laurenwinans.com will also promote the PSA.
As a volunteer nonprofit animal rescue and rehabilitation program, PURR’s efforts rely on the generosity of our friends who love the work we do. The funds raised this year will help us pay for spaying/neutering of cats and kittens that come into our care. Our dreams are big and our paws are little! With your help we can change the reality of felines everywhere! Your donations go directly to the cats and kittens that P.U.R.R. West Virginia helps!
