WE’VE GOT WALLS! BUT WE NEED FURNITURE!
The past week has been a CRAZY ROLLER COASTER RIDE for the staff and volunteers at the Furkids Cat Shelter. We DOUBLED the size of the shelter, literally overnight, thanks to a very special donor. Cats were moved from our FIV+ house into their new FIV+ suite; and our Purrkids cats, who work with our socializing team, transitioned from their original shelter rooms to their new digs.
And what’s a major move without an Open House in the middle of it? Our Annual Open House precipitated all of the excitement, and the middle-of-the-night activity. Friends, family and fans were so excited to see our new space this past Saturday and Sunday! It was a great weekend!
Now that we have the new space finished, we are working hard to get it furnished. Here is how you can help us fulfill our wish list for our new cat rooms:
– 12 GIFTS OF $25 provide one pair of shelving units (24 pairs needed) [linuswheel]
– 5 GIFTS of $50 purchase a Furwood Forrest cat tree (18 trees needed)
– 10 GIFTS of $100 buy one fantastic CAT wheel for fitness and to alleviate boredom. We need a total of 14 wheels to outfit the new space, and replace the old units in our original rooms.
[SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA] – 5 Crijo units ($5,000 each) These are fabulous cat perches and units built specifically for shelters (pictured left). www.crijopets.com.
We were hoping to purchase a couple of these items, but they aren’t in the budget.
We also need cat “comfort items” for the new space; things like scratchers, litter boxes, bowls, bedding, and toys.
If you would like to help us outfit our exciting expansion, you can do so NOW!
And stop by any Saturday, from 12-5 p.m., to see our beautiful new addition! The cats will be happy to show you around.
Thank you so much for your support. We can’t save lives without it.
