Cat’s Cradle Animal Rescue is a non-profit registered charity (CRA# 85627 5557 RR0001). It is funded solely by donations and our fundraising efforts. Tax receipts are issued for all monetary donations.

Our veterinary bills are extremely high, as we do not deny an animal any veterinary work it requires (i.e. life saving surgery, dental work, ongoing medical care for chronic conditions…). We rely on the advice of the veterinarians who work with us on what the animal needs to live a healthy life.

There are a number of different ways you can donate. Donations of money can be made via
Paypal, CanadaHelps, or contact us to make a monetary donation in cash, by cheque, by money order, or by using your VISA or MasterCard.

PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online! Donate Now Through CanadaHelps.org!

Please note that cash should not be sent in the mail.
Please send your cheque or money order to:

Cat’s Cradle Animal Rescue
#101- 9780 2nd Street, Sidney, BC V8L 3Y8

Please read the Pets In Need page if you would like your monetary donation to benefit a particular animal, or if you can provide continuing support to the Society.

Thrifty’s Smile Cards

We are issued with “Smile Cards” to give out to our supporters. You take the (empty) card into Thrifty’s and load it up with whatever amount of cash you want (typically about $200). Then after the card has been loaded, present your Smile Card when you run your groceries through the checkout. The value of the groceries is deducted from the cash balance on the Smile Card, and CCAR gets a donation from Thrifty’s equal to 5% of the value of the groceries paid via the Smile Card. There is no cost to obtain or use the Smile Card, and – the donation is paid to us out of Thrifty’s profits. Contact catscradle@telus.net to obtain a Smile Card today!

Canadian Tire Money

We can use Canadian Tire Money to buy feed, litter and supplies at Canadian Tire.
Please send any CTM donations by mail to:

Recyclables

Recyclables can be taken to any of these depots, which have a CCAR account:

The Bottle Depot – 250 727-7480
3961 Quadra St, 4261 Glanford Ave, 655 Queens Ave

Sidney Bottle Depot – 250 655-4878
5-10025 Galaran Road

Westshore Return-It-Centre – 250 381-1482
858 Esquimalt Road

All you need to do is take your sorted bottles etc. to the depot and ask that the money be donated to Cat’s Cradle Animal Rescue. The Depot will keep track and send us a cheque for the generous contributions. We apologize, it is not always financially prudent to pick up less than a truck full of recyclables at a time.

Other Donations

Donated items that we can sell in our store, Second Chances, or photograph and advertise/sell on UsedVictoria.com. Contact catscradle@telus.net to discuss what you want to donate. This would be greatly appreciated! If you have an item you would like to donate, but are unsure of, please sell the item and donate the money to CCAR. We will happily supply a tax receipt. Our thanks in advance for this! We can provide a tax receipt for major donations in kind, provided a “market value” can be established for the goods and/or services being donated. Please contact us to discuss our current needs, and to arrange delivery or pickup of donations in kind.

If you can’t donate money or items, check out the How to Help page for ideas on other ways to help the animals.
