The Ingrid’s Haven Winter Warmer Appeal is here again for 2017. It is at his time of the year where the cats have their heat pads and electric blankets on all night and with that comes a big bill in a few months’ time.
To alleviate the worry for Ingrid of how to cover that bill we aim to raise some money now so that she can put it away for that bill AND if there is a little left over we hope that Ingrid can purchase a clothes dryer to help her dry off all the cats bedding during the cold and wet months.
To give you some background, if you weren’t aware already, Ingrid works full time to help fund the running of the Haven but also relies heavily on the sponsorships and donations that come in from the public. Also twice a year we hold fundraisers, like this one, to ask for help with “big ticket” items:
- Christmas time is when we raise funds to help cover all the vet bills that are associated with the influx of kittens over that period – de-sexing, vaccinations, microchips etc.
- Winter is when we seek your help to raise funds to go towards the large electricity bill (plus this year a clothes dryer).
The cost of keeping the cats warm is enormous – they have heat pads in all of their kennels and electric blankets on all of their bunk beds (at last count there were 13 double bunk beds at the Haven – that’s 26 electric blankets!) We’ve lost count of how many heat pads there are.
So, if you can spare a few dollars it would help the kitties immensely – Ingrid can then sleep easy knowing that the cats will be warm and the bill will be paid.
Thank you for your support of Ingrid and the cats.
