A CoatHook to Benefit
Furever Home Kitty Rescue
About This Fundraiser
This fundraiser benefits Furever Home Kitty Rescue, an all-volunteer organization devoted to advocating for cats and kittens in need. We are proud to support this relatively young grassroots rescue organization based in California.
FHKR’s founder, JoMarie Anton, has been helping animals of all kinds her entire life — starting when she was a small child. Animals in need always seemed to find her — orphaned bunnies, fawns, raccoons, and birds — once even, an owl with a broken leg.
When JoMarie retired in 2013, she celebrated by pursuing her lifelong dream of devoting all her time and energy to helping animals. She chose to focus on cats because she'd always loved them and she saw that they are often the least likely to leave shelters alive, and many people don’t see them in a positive light — you might say she sees them as the rescue world’s underdogs.
Since then JoMarie has attracted a growing foster-home network, cat lovers who provide a safe haven for homeless felines. The organization is always looking to add to its network, so there’s a greater chance of finding an open door when it’s needed.
Always, the goal is to find loving “furever” indoor-only homes, where cats who were once in trouble can now live their lives safely, comfortably, and happily ever after.
FHKR also collaborates with other rescue organizations to network any of their cats who need a new home. And it also supports volunteers who feed feral colonies. If kittens are found in those colonies, FHKR volunteers take them in to socialize them, then FHKR takes them to their adoption center so they can be successfully placed in loving furever homes. They also trap, neuter, and release ferals back to their colonies, so there will be no more kittens born into the the struggle and suffering on the streets.
Since it began, FHKR estimates that it has played a role in helping about a thousand cats and kittens in need.
We are honored to provide financial support through CoatHook sales to help this small but determined rescue organization provide veterinary care, food, litter, and other supplies to cats in need. Thank you for supporting this effort by purchasing your CoatHook pet comb from this page.
About This Product
The CoatHook gathers and removes shedding undercoat fur from cats, dogs, and rabbits without pulling or cutting the outer layers of fur, the way some pet combs do.
The CoatHook’s long tines reach through the outer layer of fur, and the small hooks at the ends of the tines gently but very effectively gather and remove downy shedding undercoat fur.
A series of graduated hooks along the top of the tines can be used to gently tease out tangled fur.
The CoatHook works really well on dogs who have coats that shed, such as Labs, Collies, Shepherds, and mixed breeds, as well as medium-long to long-haired cats.

Made in Maine, USA.
