Every cat that comes through the doors of Ohio Alleycat Resource and Spay/Neuter Clinic (OAR) has a story. So do the people who trap, rescue, manage colonies, foster, and adopt them. Sharing these stories has long been a dream of OAR volunteers and staff, as we've witnessed the organization grow into an incredible life-saving resource for cats in the tri-state area and beyond.
In Hairballs & Heroes, you'll read touching, humorous, and heartbreaking stories of cats with a connection to OAR, submitted and/or written by our adopters, volunteers, rescuers, and others who have been touched by these special felines. There's the tiny orange kitten who helped her adopters heal from tremendous loss; the disfigured stray that taught his foster lessons about living life to the fullest; the new volunteer who discovered the joy of fostering; and the couple who found their own happy ending through a shared love for helping community cats.
Lovingly compiled by a team of OAR volunteers, dubbed The Cat Chroniclers, we hope you'll join us in celebrating the cats of OAR and the people who care about them!
