Sammy’s Cat Necessities Fund

Supporting the needs of cats in the care of BHS

The Sammy’s Cat Necessities Fund was created by Baltimore philanthropists and cat lovers Caren and Bruce Hoffberger to support the everyday and medical needs of cats in the care of BHS until they can find their forever homes.

The fund is named in memory of Bruce and Caren’s beloved Siamese cat Sammy, who they rescued from a shelter. Sammy had been given up by his previous owners because of a medical issue and his loud meow. He was welcomed into the Hoffberger family, where he was loved every day for 13 years. At age 15, Sammy was diagnosed with cancer in his sinus. During treatment, his heart gave out suddenly.

Broken-hearted, the Hoffbergers developed the fund to keep Sammy’s memory alive. Donations to this fund ensure that all BHS shelter cats receive the daily care they need so they are comfortable, healthy, and ready to be placed in loving homes.
