The Cat Purrse

 

We have created a new fundraising Facebook page, The Cat Purrse, to enable our volunteers to raise money online for our various TNR community funds. Each month, we will offer a new fundraiser for a specific area. Please follow (and share) the page and help us to raise much needed funds!

Our first fundraiser is a photo competition taking place this month for the West Waterford TNR fund. Entries will be accepted until the 28th of March. Check out the great submissions we have received so far!

And the Summer winner is…

It’s always difficult for the jury to decide on a winner for the photo competition, but a choice has to be made…  And it is Aisling O’Donoghue with her photo “Piper at the Beach in Clare” who wins!  See, we like dogs too! Congratulations Aisling and Piper!

Autumn 2015 Photo Competition

Photo competition 15 autumn

Community Cats’ photo competition is a fun way to support the work we do and help us to raise much needed funds.  The entry to the competition is €3, which will help us to look after our feline friends.  As you may have guessed, the subject of the photo must be an animal, but not necessarily a cat, as we love all animals!

How does it work?

Firstly, you need to buy one or more entries online (make sure you write down the reference number).  You then submit your photo, with the reference number, to communitycatsnetwork@gmail.com.  You can submit photos until the 20th of November.  We keep record of all entries, so if you have bought more than one, you do not have to use them all in one go.  The photos are then displayed in a photo album on Facebook, where your friends and our followers can vote for them until the end of November.  The three photos with the most votes are shortlisted and sent to a judging panel who will consider both content and quality of the photos to make the final decision.  The winner will then be announced here and on Facebook middle of December.
