May 2021 – A look at what your donations supported!
What a day!
Why have we been in such a good mood all month? Because our incredible donors came through for the animals in a BIG way on May 6th, the Big Day of Giving! You incredible people raised over $115,000, which will save and improve so many lives. From our staff, volunteers, and especially from our animals – thank you for being amazing.
Helping more pets in need
For a long time, we’ve known there are many animals in our community that need help who don’t come through our doors. Because of you, we are finally able to go outside our walls to ensure they get the care they need. We’ve partnered with Elica, a local organization that provides quality medical care to people in our community from a broad range of socioeconomic backgrounds. Not only are the people receiving much needed medical care, but so are their animals.
What drought? It’s raining kittens!
“Kitten season” is officially upon us, and we are especially overwhelmed with kittens who are supposed to be with mom. Often, citizens bring them in because they see them alone, not realizing mom is off getting food. Kittens need their mother’s milk to survive, but when they’re brought to the shelter, it’s up to our amazing volunteers to foster and bottle feed them until they’re old enough to eat on their own. It can be a tough job, requiring someone to get up every few hours at night to feed them for the first week or two. But it sure is rewarding to see them grow up. If you’d like to become a foster for these little guys, email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll let you know when our next bottle baby intro webinar will be!
