We want to extend our gratitude to the Department of Agriculture for the Grant we received last year. As a voluntary organisation, we rely a lot on fundraising which can fluctuate depending on the time of year or peoples’ availability. Having the grant gives us some much needed security and allows us to pay off some vet bills which are of course a constant and necessary expense. It also helps us to make a little headway into the enormous need to do some TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) in various areas to help the ongoing situation of cats and kittens suffering in ever increasing cat colonies.
The money also helps in situations where an animal comes into our care and, as a result of cruelty or extreme neglect, needs a lot of intervention from the vet…another necessary but hard to anticipate expense.
All of this isn’t taking into account the day to day running of the shelter but with the help given, we have more confidence in meeting the needs of the animals in our care.
So, thank you so much once again to the Department of Agriculture and we look forward to continuing to work with you.
