Elmhurst, NY - EMERGENCY - 30 Kittens Need Immediate Rescue, 100+ Colony Cats Need Caretaker

URGENT SITUATION - PLEASE CROSSPOST
A woman in Elmhurst, Queens, has been caring for 150-200 cats outside for the past couple of years. She is moving out of state in a couple weeks and has been trying, unsuccessfully, to find new caretakers for her colonies and rescues for the many kittens. She has done TNR in the area but did not have the means to get the situation under control. Scores of cats left behind in her colonies will most likely die without a new caretaker.
Knowing that she would be moving, she took in 30-plus kittens from the colonies because she did not want them to die on the street, however, to complicate matters even further, she is being evicted from her home. The Marshall is coming Friday and she will be locked out. Thirty kittens, ages 2-3 months-old and friendly, will be put back out on the street by the caretaker or taken to Animal Care and Control by the Marshall if not rescued before Friday, June 22, 2012.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
If you are a rescuer with space, you can take in a litter of kittens.
If you are a foster, you can contact your rescue to offer fostering for as many of these kittens as you have room for.
If you live in the Elmhurst area, you can take over the feeding of one or more colony.
If you have money, you can donate to one of the rescues coordinating efforts to assist in this situation.
If you have any or none of the above, you can share this post with others to spread the word as quickly as possible. Time is of the essence!
