According to the post, Rogers' decision to close the nonprofit comes from personal health concerns. Rogers said Shelter Manager Deena Urich has indicated plans to retain the rescue at its current location, 5050 FM 1960 W., Ste. 103, Houston, and reopen the rescue Aug. 1 under the name Almost Home Cat Haven.
"These past nine years have been such a mixed blessing experience for me," Rogers said in the Facebook post. "I poured my heart and soul, money and personal sacrifice into saving these kitties. I have made such wonderful friends throughout this process who believed in me, and the mission of this rescue. I cannot thank you enough for your many blessings and continued support as I could not have done this by myself."
According to the post, Urich has worked at The Kitten House Rescue for more than four years and has more than 15 years of experience in cat rescue. Upon reopening, Urich plans to retain the existing rescue's staff.
The nonprofit's final fundraiser will be a Pinot's Pallette painting party scheduled for July 30. For more information, call 832-286-4285 or visit www.kittenhouserescue.org.
"Any funds collected by KHR and left from paying the final expenses of the rescue center will then be donated to the new rescue," Rogers' post reads.
