Fundraising for OAR

Keeping a small, no-kill feral rescue like O'Bryonville Animal Rescue going is no mean feat. Donations are always gladly accepted, and through fundraising efforts our volunteers assist the income to keep the cats and kittens fed, vaccinated and happy. It's a never-ending cycle, and we appreciate anything we get!

Volunteers have come together to produce these items for sale to benefit OAR. If you are interested in purchasing any of these items, please e-mail the webmaster, Alryssa Kelly, at
Prices do not include shipping, if applicable.


The OAR calendar Produced for the year 2000, the O'Bryonville Animal Rescue calendar features a full-page colour photograph and a suitable cat quote for each month, including pictures of local feral colony members.

Cats featured include O'Bryonville mascot George and Olivia - former Iams kitten - as pictured on the cover.

SOLD OUT! - Look for the 2001 calendar, coming soon!


White or tie-dyed (in yellow, red, blue or multicoloured) T-Shirts feature a puppy and kitten logo and 'O'Bryonville Animal Rescue' in black. On the back, 'Please remember to spay and neuter!'

Coffee Mugs

Wily and the mugs The coffee mugs, as pictured here (if you can ignore Wily with his head in the catnip!), are dishwasher and microwave safe. The text running around the top and bottom of the cups is:

O'Bryonville Animal Rescue (513) 871 - PAWS
Mt Airy Animal Rescue (513) 681 - 6194

Mugs are priced at $5 each plus applicable shipping.

Stuffed Kitty Toys

The tree covered with kitties These stuffed kitties are made by husband-and-wife volunteers
Tom Kelly and Alryssa Kelly. Each kitty is filled with polyfibre stuffing, has a ribbon round its neck and is painted with fabric paint. Each bears a name (optional) of one of the rescue's current residents.

Each kitty also has its own loop, so you can hang it on your wall, your Christmas tree, or wherever you want! Kitties can be made to order, with your choice of name. These items were a big hit at the December Open House, and at the recent sidewalk sale, bringing in almost $70 for the rescue.

For the Doctor Who-oriented among you, you may want to order a Doctor Kitty (picture to come) - choose any of the eight Doctors you would like. E-mail for details. A Colin Baker Doctor kitty recently went for a bid of $15 at an art show - many thanks to author Kate Orman for splashing out on it!

These adorable little stuffed animals make wonderful gifts. To order, please e-mail Alryssa or Tom Kelly at Kitties generally sell for $2.50 each plus 55 cents shipping (in the US).

All proceeds will benefit the cat rescue *directly.* With your help, we are aiming to raise $2,000 to assist the rescue with its sterling work - and for a rescue like this one, it will be a real shot in the arm.
