We are delighted to have been chosen as one of the charities for the community fund in Tesco in Clonmel.
We have been operating our Trap-Neuter-Return scheme in the South Tipp area for nearly two years now thanks to the dedication of one volunteer. In 2017 only, near to 100 cats were helped in the area. However, we have found it very difficult to raise enough funds to support the overwhelming number of cats we have been made aware of and not many carers seem to be in a position to cover for the cost of neutering or willing to organise fundraisers. As a result, we have had to turn down some of the enquiries we have received.
Being one of the recipients of the Tesco community fund is a fantastic opportunity to raise some vital funds so that we can continue to help out cats (and their people) in the area. Please, consider popping to Tesco in Clonmel to support the cause by putting your blue tokens in the CCN urn. You can also get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We recently put up an appeal to raise funds to help with TNR in the rural Mallow area. However, we have been struggling with raising funds while the enquiries have kept coming in. Thankfully, Anna from AnyLittleThings has once more come to the rescue and is holding an auction this weekend to help to raise funds so that we can help more people to neuter feral cats in that area.
Because very little neutering has been done in that area, colonies are quite large, sometimes reaching 20 cats (if not more) at this time of the year and carers simply cannot afford the full cost involved in neutering all these cats. Hopefully, by putting all our efforts together we will manage to raise enough to help more cats.
Please, take the time to check the auction at AnyLittleThings. It will kick off at 8pm today and end at 8pm on Tuesday. There will be some lovely pieces, so please bid at your heart’s content and help us to help them!
You can see photos from one of the project we recently carried out in the area (along with another 12 cats TNRed that week) here, and we are due to go back at the end of the month to carry out to more large TNR project.
On the 27th of April, we will be celebrating 6 years of helping stray and feral cats. To mark this occasion, we have organised a raffle with some very special prizes.
1st prize: Nutty the Squirrel, knitted by the very talented Beryl.
2st prize: Drawing by East Cork artist Tom Walsh
3rd prize: Painting on canvas by Sharon, one of our supporters
4th prize: a cat gift set
5th prize: Grace & Cole toiletry set
6th prize: Hand-crafted Pandora-style bracelet, made and donated by a supporter.
The draw will take place on the 29th of April around 8pm and winners will be announced on our Facebook page.
To enter the draw, make a donation here (€2 per line, €5 for 3 lines or €10 for 8 lines). Thank you for your continued support!
This month at The Cat Purrse, we are having an auction to raise funds for TNR in East Cork. We have helped with some very large colonies already this year and no doubt there are more to come…
The auction will close on the 16th of April and more items will be added every day until then. There are many jewellery pieces, as well as crafts and art, but also toiletry sets, bags, toys, etc, so check it out and share with your friends!
We are having a raffle to win this lovely hamper in Southview Vets in Clonmel. Lines are €2 each and the draw will take place on the 26th of February. Please support by calling down and buying a line. All proceeds will go to neuter stray and feral cats in the town.
Unfortunately, without the support of the community for fundraising, we can only offer limited assistance and often have to turn down TNR projects if the carers cannot afford the discounted rate of neutering. Please, consider supporting this fundraiser, organising a fundraiser or donating to the South Tipp fund so that the great work started by our volunteer in Clonmel last year can continue.
