Here’s more info about this month’s organizations.
A no-kill cat sanctuary dedicated to providing a safe haven for abandoned and abused felines in the Hudson Valley and beyond. Our resident animals are given humane and compassionate care in a free-range environment while awaiting their forever homes.
More words from the good folks at Mid Hudson Animal Aid themselves:
MHAA is committed to educating and informing the public about responsible pet ownership, placing animals in good adoptive homes, and encouraging spaying and neutering in our community to curb animal overpopulation and suffering. MHAA is a pioneer of the no-kill shelter model, boasting a mostly cage-less, free roaming environment. Separate FeLv and FIV apartments have been created for special needs animals and no cat is considered unadoptable. As a non- profit organization, we subsist entirely on donations and fundraising efforts. Fire recently ripped through our isolation ward taking the lives of eight of our precious cats. We are currently rebuilding and tending to the needs of our 160 residents in foster homes. The financial burden this has created is huge.
You can be a part of rebuilding, healing, and moving forward for MHAA here.
$10 from every item purchased on the Res•Q•threads site is donated to the animal rescue/shelter of the purchaser’s choice. This month, #TeamCatMojo chooses Mid Hudson Animal Aid!

Every Shelter of the Month receives a 32 oz. bottle of Stress Stopper.
Stress Stopper is formulated for all animals, not just cats. It helps animals feel grounded and protected, which makes it great for the occasional, short-duration stresses that an animal faces: trips to the vet, thunder and lightning, fireworks, parties, vacuum cleaner, lawnmower, machinery, visitors and house guests, vacations (if the animal is boarded or has a pet-sitter), unusual noises (remodeling, construction, roadwork, etc.), arguments with other animals, repairpersons. It is also good for animals who are left home alone all day, to prevent boredom and stress.
As you can see, Stress Stopper is an all-around remedy, which has made it one of the best-selling remedies in the Spirit Essences line.
As a shelter volunteer, Joan Laisney saw scratch marks on cage walls and shelving by shelter cats’ attempts to perform natural behaviors: stretching their muscles, scratching to clean their nails and scent mark with paws.
After months of testing, Joan designed a scratcher for caged cats that is sturdy, easy to install and affordable in a tight economy.
