Bottom line is that AvertingCatastrophe Rescue is a top notch organization. overall rating

I began working with AvertingCatastrophe on its inception, and will continue to help them save lives. I have worked in the capacity of networked, transporter, and foster. I don't know if a more hard working, caring group of people. They are dedicated to saving the lives of animals who would otherwise be doomed to life on the street or killed in shelters. These animals are returned to optimal health and adopted to homes as beloved pets. I would encourage anyone to offer to work with this rescue in any capacity. It will be one of the most rewarding things you have done.

An amazing group that gives its heart and soul to the kitties! overall rating

I started out a s a volunteer kitty socializer/ condo cleaner at the Mansfield Petco and have since fostered six ACats, and adopted two ACats of my own. I have volunteered with this group for over a year now and I have never met a more friendly, helpful, and kind group of people. ACat is truly a voice for the kitties in need in the Arlington/ Mansfield (and beyond) area. If you're looking to give back to the community through volunteering or to find a new furever feline, I give the highest of recommendations to Averting CAT-astrophe!

Best rescue to work with, period! overall rating

My family has been working with Averting Cat-astrophe for a while now. ALL of the volunteers are wonderful! Never have i met a more caring group of people wanting to make a difference in the world. This group really puts there everything into fostering and making sure the cats and kittens are taken care of and ready for there forever home. Makes me proud to know them and be part of something bigger then myself.
