Dear friends ,
I wanted to let you know about a benefit that we have planned on April 6, 2012 at Limetree with the support of many sponsors, dedicated volunteers and the sounds of Hudson and the Hoodoo Cats!
As you know, Lucky Paws Foundation’s mission is to end animal homelessness and suffering in the Virgin Islands by raising funds to distribute for spay and neuter assistance to caretakers of feral (free-roaming, community cats) and pet owners in need of financial assistance. Working directly with the community, every month we distribute the funds for the veterinary bills to support our No Kill mission. We are presently the only organization that protects community cats and provides support to resorts and compassionate cat colony caregivers. On average only 1-2 out of 10 adoptable cats at the shelter ever find a home. The statistics are grim but we are committed to lowering the death rate while increasing the adoption rate of animals already in the shelter. TNR is a humane and effective life saving, non lethal solution that benefits the cats and the community...or should I call it a "totally necessary requirement" for anyone committed to saving lives?
Fundraising is an essential part of our survival as we presently receive no Gov't support. We do not have any administrative costs as we are all volunteers and every penny raised is used solely for spaying and neutering assistance. (I still pay for all the food... along with a handful of caring volunteers and occasional donations from our Cost U Less location which we share with the shelter animals). However, we are making our presence felt outside the Caribbean: the Humane Society International is praising our work and is endorsing our Cat Cafe program. See attached!
Once our new website is finished we will be able to distribute these flyers everywhere (there is also a Spanish version!)
There is much work ahead to improve the TNR protocol, educate and empower the community to advocate for every animal's right to be safe, healthy and valued.
Please spread the word!
We also have a S/N event planned for July!!! ...more to come on that!
Still need help:
volunteers for clean up after the event
items or gift certificates for the raffle
loan of potted plants to beautify the venue
If you can help in any area please let me know....
ADOPT from the animal shelter, start a community cat colony and spread the word about spaying and neutering.
Our conviction for doing what is right for the animals, can and will change our world for the better. We are committed to saving lives; and ending the killing of healthy and adoptable animals. The power of education coupled with patience and determination will invoke a positive change in the way our community views all animals.
A goal of this magnitude needs everyone's commitment to become a reality: Won't you be part of the solution?
The $25 ticket entry entitles you to a delicious buffet (see menu) and a chance for a fabulous gift! Can't make it? Consider a donation...the animals are counting on you.
