The Story

From June 10th to July 10th, Caring For Creatures, a no kill animal sanctuary since 1988, in central Virginia, and home to 200 cats and dogs, is asking you to give the gift of life by donating just $10.  The weather isn’t the only thing heating up around here.  Summer is traditionally a challenging time financially for us here at CFC as our budget is forced to stretch in order to cover the costs of caring for the 200 animals in residence. We have a number of new animals arriving at our sanctuary, with an even longer waiting list, but our resources are getting low.  We don’t want to turn those away who have nowhere else to go.  But we need your help in order to provide quality food and medical care to those in need.  In the world of animal rescue, summer does not include a vacation from helping animals in need. If everyone donated just $10, it would make a huge difference in the lives of homeless animals. Only with your help can we continue our mission of saving precious lives. 

In today's world, you may think $10 doesn't seem as though it will help very much!  NONSENSE!  We can do a great deal with $10 (see below) and when many generous individuals give $10 each,THE POWER OF 10 takes on a life of its own and becomes very large, very quickly!

Here's what $10 will buy for the animals:

16 cans of Fancy Feast cat food
10 large cans of Friskies cat food
7 large cans of Pedigree dog food
2 - 40 pound bags of cat litter
5 - Heartworm Tests
Approx. 5 canine or feline combo vaccines

Please give just $10 today and help support the care of animals like Pipsqueak and Justice.  Neighbors heard 8 week old Pipsqueak crying and found him trying to climb the front steps of a nearby vacant house. He was brought to us malnourished, dehydrated and suffering from intestinal parasites and a severe case of mange.  Justice and his 4 siblings were found in a woodpile and arrived at CFC in a cardboard box. Mom, Liberty, was found later and arrived with no use of her back legs, having been shot by a bb gun.

As awful as these situations were, they’re the lucky ones – they’re here – and with your help, we can save even more lives.
