Happy Valentine’s Day!

Image
I’m Charles and I have been chosen to wish everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day from all the Love and Hope kitties. We want everyone to have a loving and joyful day. 
 
As you can see, I am very handsome, very regal (often referred to as Prince Charles), and I love everyone and I love to be loved. 
 
I am also Feline Lukemia (FeLV) positive.
 
I am very fortunate to be here at the Sanctuary where I have made friends (both feline and human). I want to thank everyone whose support has made my life possible.
 
Yearly Physicals
Image

As Manuel is telling everyone, the time has again rolled around for our 200+ cats to received their yearly physicals. It is a time consuming labor of love where each cat is thoroughly examined by our wonderful vet, any necessary vaccines are updated with annual deworming, teeth examined and all dental work performed. Then a bath and a mani/pedi and each one is ready for spring. 

 
A donation of $25 will help us keep two of our cats healthy and happy. 
 
Please considering a one time contribution (by CLICKING HERE) toward this yearly expense or sponsor your very own kitty (by CLICKING HERE).
 
Thank you!

They Need Your Help!

The Love and Hope kitties live a wonderful, safe and secure life. But this is a expensive endeavor. The cost to support a cat here at the Sanctuary is over $1,000 a year. The kitties have asked Sonny to be their spokescat.

I was elected spokescat (well, not unanimously, don’t know what’s wrong with those who didn’t vote for me) because I am obviously beautiful, highly intelligent and articulate. They want me to give you some idea as to how much it costs to take care of us. I’m not going to bore you with every little detail, but here is a general idea.

Employee Payroll – $85,000 – There are 3 full time and 1 part time caretakers. They clean and disinfect our rooms everyday, 365 days a year, do our laundry, change our litter and feed us, not to mention hugging and kissing us as well.

Food – $40,000 – We like to eat both wet and dry.

Veterinarian – $22,000 – She takes VERY good care of us.

Medications and Medical Supplies – $18,000

Cleaning Supplies – $5,000 – We REALLY like our rooms to be kept clean.

This doesn’t even include things like repairs and maintenance, utilities, and insurance, as well as day to day expenses.

We receive no government funding and all of our support is from private donations. The officers and directors receive no compensation. Every penny raised goes solely to our care.

You can help us by making a donation by Clicking Here OR by “sponsoring a cat” with a monthly donation of your choice ($20-$75) by Clicking Here.

I have a sponsor, and I let her know how I am and when I can get some computer time, send her an email. Some of my friends do not have sponsors and would love a virtual adoption and person all of their own for Christmas. It would be the best present that they could receive.

Thank you for hearing my pitch and thank you for your help.
