We Need More Mice!
Of the non furry variety.
Cats Cradle Animal Rescue are looking for knitters and crocheters to make our catnip mice, which we sell to raise funds. In particular our little mice with ears and tails are selling like hotcakes, and we are calling for more help in producing this particular version as we keep running out.
We can provide you with wool, pattern, and any supplies and help you may need. If you prefer, we could even stuff them for you. All those little scraps of coloured wool you may have are actually perfect for this project. The brighter the better.
With the cold weather coming, we are hoping more people will find the time to help us continue to raise money with these popular critters. They are fun to make and are popular with customers and kitties alike.
Thanks so much for your support. Please email Gillian Else at email@example.com (Cats Cradle volunteer) for help and information.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!
CCAR is really struggling financially and we are seriously in the red right now. One of our volunteers is funding CCAR out of personal funds in order to ensure that the cats in our care continue to be well cared for.
However, we are having to turn people away who request our help. Last week, a mom and three kittens were spotted near a house on West Saanich Road. The mom appeared to have an injured paw. We had to send them elsewhere as we do not have the funds to help. We are having to limit vet visits to only emergency type situations and this is really difficult for those of us who are caring for cats.
The purpose of this posting is to ask if everyone who Likes us on Facebook would donate on a monthly basis. Just $5 a month would give us a monthly income of over $6,000. which will go a long way towards keeping CCAR viable. This money can be donated through Canada Helps on our website and is a completely painless procedure. Please give this some consideration and help us to continue to help the animals who needs us. We can’t take needy animals from anywhere right now and we all worry about what will happen to them, especially those at Animal Control and the CRD.
So, if you can see your way clear to doing this, it would be a huge help. We are ramping up our fund raising and grant requests but we need a lot of money to keep doing what we want to do. You really can help with just a $5 a month commitment, $60 a year. It will go a long way to helping us continue if we get regular monthly donations like this.
Thank you for your support.

June 21st Heralds The Official Arrival of Summer
"You don't think about it because you have shoes on. When you are in the parking lot chatting with a friend, or loading your shopping into your car, or you stop on the street to chat with someone and your dog is pulling and jumping, don't scold them, their paws are BURNING up! Goes for crossing streets too. Let your dog walk on grass if possible.

Many thanks to those people who wish to donate and remain anonymous. Cat's Cradle receives many generous gifts from those who don't want any acknowledgement.
If you are one of those please accept this as a very large THANK YOU for what you have done. It is truly appreciated by all.
