ANNUAL KLAW FLEA
10-4 Sunday 10-3
Galore! Silent Auction!
of Cheer Raffle
benefit for Kismet League for Animal Welfare, a non-profit organization
though the weather was perfect for the beach, and it was Father’s Day, Kismetics
and their visitors managed to acquire a variety of items for literally a few
dollars, to enrich their minds (books), wardrobes, kitchens and interior
decoration. With Myrna hawking at the door it proved irresistible …safe in the
knowledge that anything you didn’t like could be retuned next year. Knowing it
was for a good cause made the event even happier.
League for Animal Welfare
began in an informal way in the early 1990’s
Kismet residents began to notice an increasing number of abandoned and
feral cats in the community. The goal of the organization has always
been to find ways to reduce or stabilize the population, which it has
succeeded in doing
statement is simple and our goals are to achieve the following:
proactively seek new approaches in the effort to end the suffering of companion
animals in our society caused by cruelty, neglect, or human apathy
1. Provide abandoned cats with rabies vaccines
food via feeding stations with property owners’ permission
for abandoned and feral cats throughout the year
3. Reduce the cat population through a spay/neuter effort
work to place abandoned cats and kittens into permanent loving homes, when
achieves these goals through several annual fundraising events
