Target: James Bomar Talbot
Goal: Thank man for his generous donation to Nashville’s animal care and control center
In Nashville, Tennessee, a man named James Bomar Talbot provided for animals in a huge way at the time of his death. He left a large cash donation to the Metro Animal Care and Control to help homeless cats in his will. Talbot donated $160,000 for the care of the animals.
According to Fox News, Talbot was 84 years old when he passed away and although he had close friends and family, he had no wife or children. He did, however, have a rescue cat that he loved greatly. The cats at the animal control center were very important to him.
Interviews with the local cat shop employee revealed that he very frequently visited the care center and fostered a couple of cats as well. Before he passed, he asked people which rescue group would be the best for him to donate to. According to reports, Talbot had specific instructions for the money, which was that it needed to be used to improve the lives of the cats while they were at the Metro Animal Control. He wanted to ensure his donation was used to promote the health and safety of the cats.
The Metro Animal Control center has cats coming in every day from near and far. They are all taken care of and are waiting to be adopted by caring homes. This is the first time the Metro Animal Control has gotten this large of a donation. The center takes care of animals and also offers a variety of programs and services. The services help stop the overpopulation of animals through neutering and spaying.
Please sign this petition to thank the late James Bomar Talbot for his generosity.
