Exotic Feline Rescue Center

Our first event of the year is this Saturday, September 27! We will be traveling to the Exotic Feline Rescue Center in Center Point, IN.  Please be at Vet Med BEFORE 9:30am, as we will be leaving the parking lot at 9:30 sharp!  The tour begins at 1pm ET and will last 1-2 hours, including a tour of the grounds and a behind-the-scenes tour.  The tour is $8 per person – be sure to bring cash for the tour and to chip in for carpool if you aren’t driving.  If you are able and willing to drive, please sign up on the Google doc link provided in the email.  Hope to see you all on Saturday!
