Crash’s Landing’s Founding Cat ‘Crash’ Has Died
Crash’s Landing is a non-profit, no-kill cat rescue center. Crash’s Landing has helped over 2,500 cats.
It all started in 1999 with a small eight-week-old kitten named Crash.
In October of 1999 an animal lover found a kitten hurt and in trouble. The cat had been hit by a car and left on the side of the road.
They brought the two-pound kitten to Dr. Jennifer Petrovich. Dr. Jen immediately began caring for the young cat. She named him ‘Crash’.
Crash had three fractured legs, a shattered foot, and a broken tail. Crash’s outlook was not good. Crash underwent multiple surgeries. With the care and dedication of Dr. Jen and her staff, Crash was able to beat the odds and was nursed back to health.
But this was only the beginning.
Dr. Jen began taking in more cats to her own home, but soon it became too much. More space was needed. On October 21, 2002, Crash’s Landing was born.
Hundreds of volunteers and thousands of visitors have been touched by Crash’s Landing.
Sadly, on April 11, 2013, we lost Crash’s Landing’s beloved founding cat Crash.
