Letter to the best friends, sponsors, and volunteers in the world
Dear Friends, Donors, Volunteers and Supporters
Cats, cats, cats! Adorable kittens, wise wonderful seniors, abandoned cats, young pregnant cats, sick cats, injured cats and healthy ones . . . all deserving cats that need your financial support today!
Your donation makes the work of our all-volunteer team possible. Your contributions have allowed us to rescue more than 600 cats in the greater Eugene/Springfield community this year to date, and will provide the fuel to keep us moving forward.
Because of you, this year so far, we were able to:
- take in the five kittens and momma cat that local employees planned to poison
- help the young woman whose unspayed female cat had grown into 20 cats and kittens and were overrunning the neighborhood
- support the kind neighbor who rescued more than 20 kittens from his neighborhood
- provide over $103,000 in medical fees to heal, vaccinate and sterilize our cats
- find new homes for 383 deserving, rehabilitated, healthy cats
And our little volunteer group is growing too. In August we changed our name to better reflect who we are now and what we do. After 10 years of service “West Coast Dog and Cat Rescue (WCDC)” is now “Cat Rescue and Adoption Network (CRAN)” with a new website and logo!
And yet, we are still the same all-volunteer group, funded entirely by private donations form supporters like you (no government funding here), working tirelessly on behalf of the cats in our community and the people who care for them.
And now it’s the end of the year, time to close the books and pay our bills. It takes love to do the work we do and money to pay the medical bills and feed the hungry kitties we help. We need to raise $20,000 to meet our budget for 2017; this campaign is key to closing the budget gap.
Help us reach our $12,000 Year-End Campaign goal to save neglected and abandoned cats and find them permanent, loving homes. Please mail in your donation to PO Box 72401, Springfield, OR 97475 or go online to CatRescues.org and click on “Donate” today.
With my sincere thanks on behalf of the cats,
Board President (and a volunteer too!)
