Bingo’s Foundation – ‘For the love of cats’

Bingo’s Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 cat adoption and rescue organization run solely by volunteers. Their no-kill shelter, Bingo’s Bungalow, is located in Lower Bucks County. The shelter is open to the public on Sunday mornings from 9:00am to noon, and Friday evenings from 6:00 to 8:00pm, or by appointment. They have lovable cats that want a good home.

There is nothing like a “real home and a real family” so please consider adopting a Bingo cat or kitten. The shelter is a wonderful place, but it should be only a temporary place. To maintain their shelter they rely on the support of the community.

The son of Langhorne residents Mike and Kris Torchia, Nicky is playing the role of Michael Banks in the Walnut Street Theatre’s production of “Mary Poppins” and, despite his young age, already has an Actor’s Equity card and an impressive acting résumé.
