Our Weekly Urgent Needs are below!
Monetary donations for our Vaccine & Spay/Neuter Fund
We are in desperate need of money to purchase the vaccines needed to make our pets adoptable! This is a MAJOR AND URGENT NEED!
We usually have at least 60 cats residing with us at all times and rely on the generous donations from the public for scoopable/clumping litter and dry/canned cat food.
**Disposable Litter pans would be so appreciated!
The kitties here are putting out a plea for monetary donations to be used specifically for vaccinations, testing, and spay and neuter surgeries as we have over 70 cats, many of which need these things in order to become available for adoption.
For a donation of $60, we have found a program that will provide the following for (1) cat:
-Required FeLV/FIV testing
-Required Rabies Vaccination
-PRC (Feline Distemper/Respiratory Infection) Vaccination
-Spay or Neuter Surgery
This last element, the Spay or Neuter Surgery, is very important and IMPERATIVE if we are to continue using WONDERFUL and GENEROUS adoption location sites such as PetSmart. So many of our cats get exposure and find homes by being at PetSmart. As of Feb. 3, they will be instituting a new policy that all animals that are brought to their facility must be altered (age appropriate). We firmly stand behind this decision, as it will help with the big problem of unwanted litters, roaming cats, etc. In addition, it will be one less task for our new pet parents to worry about completing after they bring kitty home. However we need help getting our cats ready for this new policy so we can get them up to PetSmart and into new and loving homes!
Donations of any amount, $1 - $1,000….doesn't matter. All are appreciated!! We just wanted to give those of you interested a specific donation amount that we are looking to collect for a specific purpose.
Donations can be dropped off, mailed, made via PayPal, or GiveMN.org. All deductions are tax deductible as we are a 501 (c)(3) Non-Profit.
We thank you for spreading the word of our continued mission to help all animals that come through our shelter!
Please feel free to call or email the shelter directly (info provided below) if you have any questions! We will do our best to respond to you in a timely manner as our paws, (I mean hands) are quite full right now!
