Our first official fund-raiser is a Cats Are Us Benefit Yard Sale.  Cats Are Us first fund-raiser yard sale will be held in the parking lot of Torero’s on Lowes Drive in Clarksville.   We will have Cats Are Us calendars,tote bags, mouse pads and a few furry friends in need of FUR-ever homes! We will be collecting donations for gently used clothes, furniture, baby items, pet items and more.    So clean out your garages, your attics, your basements, your closets (even the skeletons) and either drop off at Tracy Calkins (517 Morrison Drive in Clarksville on Tuesday-Friday between 5 pm and 8 pm) or call Jennifer (931)241-7675 for drop offs at Purrls or to arrange pickups for your garage sale items.

If you know of someone who would like to set up a vendor table with us, have them call (931)241-7675.  Some vendors have already stated they will be there and are donating $20 to set up their tables and 10% of their sales will be donated to Cats Are Us.

Last day for donations is September 15, 2013.

Anyone is welcome to join in the fun and become part of the fund-raising team.  All ideas for fund-raisers should be submitted to or leave your ideas with one of the team members or bring it up at our next meeting.  Look for many, many more fund-raisers to come.  We have a new building to build down the road!

Share this with all your friends!  All the money raised will go to help Cats Are Us and, most importantly, the CATS/KITTENS!

  1. So glad fund raisers are being planned now. This is such a worthy organization, and the volunteers work very hard to keep it going.
    There is no mention of the projected date this yard sale will actually be held.
    I’m going through my “stuff” right now to gather donations.

    • Please look under the event section and click on the photo ( That takes you directly to our Facebook page. I, Jennifer Shoopman (Cats Are Us Volunteer), am just getting the webpage organized for Cats Are Us. We will eventually have a calendar of events set up on the events page but still in the process as I am just now taking charge of the webpage. Thank you for considering us for donations and watch for more fund-raisers in the near future. Thank you also for your kind words concerning Cats Are Us. We try to do all we can for the animals of our community and your donations will be greatly appreciated.

    • The gallery is being modified. Remember I have only had control of the site for a very short time. I also have a company I run on the side I do other web work for right now. So the website is a work in progress. I did not make the gallery but I am adding to the gallary and the gallery will be available in due time. Sorry for the inconvenience.
