Year End Giving 2021
Together, We Can Make an Impact on the lives of Cats.
How You Can Change Lives.
The end of the year brings with it the season of giving thanks and giving back. It’s a time to reflect on the past months and all of their ups and downs: the many challenges we’ve faced, and the obstacles we’ve overcome. It’s a time to celebrate the power of giving, volunteerism, and even small, simple acts of kindness.
Thanks to your donations and public support, our #GivingTuesday was a success in raising $36,000 of our $40,000 goal for our lifesaving Angel Fund. Along with this much-needed support, we are continuing our fundraising efforts to ensure our programs will save more lives in 2022.
Approximately 3.2 million cats enter U.S shelters every year. And of that population, over half a million are euthanized.
These statistics are why our philosophy has always been Every Cat Matters, and it pushes us to step up to the challenge of rescuing cats and kittens from kill shelters and throughout our community. As we continue into our 24th year, our goal is to remain steadfast in saving more lives and expanding our reach to the community. As an organization, we continue to take steps in the right direction to educate ourselves on emerging animal welfare policies, develop our community resource programs, and provide the best and most advanced veterinary care for our animals. It is the dedication to our mission and the tremendous years of hard work by volunteers, fosters, staff, and generous donors that have allowed Town Cats to thrive.
Our goal for the year-end is to raise $50K for our Program Expansion Campaign.
Our vision for 2022 is to expand our cat and kitten education programs, expand our foster program, and continue our community outreach. The expansion of these programs will allow us the resources we need to take in more cats and kittens into our care and help families keep their cats and prevent surrenders in the community.
Your year-end contribution puts your funds where they are needed most: our rescue programs. It takes approximately $300 for every kitten rescued to be altered, vaccinated, and cared for until adoption. For adult cats who are surrendered, it takes even more. Most cats that come through the shelter haven’t seen a vet in years, if ever, and require extra medical care to get them healthy and prepared for a loving home.
Our community outreach programs have expanded in 2021. Our Feral Cat Pantry feeds approximately 500 feral and community cats in the area. Our newly established Cat Cupboard Relief Program provides food and litter to those experiencing financial hardship and other economic challenges.
Your tax-deductable donation will ensure that these programs will continue to be supported in 2022. Every gift makes a difference, no matter how big or small.
Because of you, we are able to make a big impact!
Our goal is to raise $50K for our Program Expansion. Help us meet the needs of our current and incoming rescues today by supporting our no-kill mission to save more cats in the community because Every Cat Matters.
