Animal rescue is an ongoing effort and as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we rely on donations and all donations are tax deductible and greatly appreciated!
The kittens and cats that are put up for adoption are brought into the vet to be spayed/neutered, tested for FIV and FeLV, flea control applied, dewormed, vaccinated and microchipped before being put up for adoption.
Each kitten costs $200 for all of this at a low cost vet (costs at a regular vet are much more expensive).
If eye or upper respiratory infections (URI’s) are present, medications are given.
The feral cats that have been spayed/neutered recover for a few days before they are released back and are provided food, water and any medications necessary. Some ferals with more severe injuries ranging from lacerations, eye removal and leg or tail amputations are provided comfort for their longer recovery time.
All of the expenses, including gas to and from the sites and to the vet offices, food, litter, formula, trap covers (shredded by cats, raccoons, opossums, sprayed by skunks being caught), equipment and any other necessary medical bills are all paid out of pocket. Besides the up-front medical costs for adoptable kittens and cats, all of their care is provided until they are adopted.
