Sammy’s Cat Necessities Fund
The Sammy’s Cat Necessities Fund was created by Baltimore philanthropists and cat lovers, Caren and Bruce Hoffberger, to support both everyday and medical needs of the cats in the care of Baltimore Humane Society 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. Monies in this fund ensure that all Baltimore Humane Society’s shelter cats receive the daily and medical care they need so that they are comfortable, healthy, and ready to be adopted into loving homes like Sammy’s.
