"This is a huge win for Enfield Community Cat Project by being chosen for this community award. Our plans for this amazing donation are to help us cover the many expenses we are still facing because of COVID. We have literally been drowning in vet bills so this is a huge relief to our rescue and will give us an opportunity to save more lives,” said Dawn Struck, President & Founder of Enfield Community Cat Project.
