Joey helps raise money for LR Animal Village play room

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – The Little Rock Animal Village is raising money to build its new Cat Room, and THV's Joey the Garden Cat is on its fundraising team.

The new addition, to be called "Joey's Play Room," would give the cats at the Animal Village a place to get exercise and play, which they can't do very well in the cages they are typically confined to. The main goal of the Joey's Play Room is to give the felines a more active life and make them healthier, but it will also do more than that. With the cats playing at free will, potential new owners can see how they interact with others and how much energy they have. This would be a great way to help people determine which cat would best fit in their family and at their home.

Animal Village workers also hope the play room can help children, too. They are launching a new program called "Book Buddies," in which kids who are having trouble reading can bring a book, sit down, and read to a cat with no fear of being judged.

Joey's Play Room, which will serve as a welcoming area to the shelter, is expected to cost about $60,000. The Animal Village is accepting donations through its PayPal account; to donate, click here: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=XZG8TT5TBYLXL

The Little Rock Animal Village is located at 4500 Kramer Street in Little Rock, Arkansas. For more information on its services and pets, visit its website at www.littlerockanimalvillage.org/‎ .
