YOUR DONATIONS MAKE THE DREAM A REALITY!!!
Over the last 4+ years, the Kitty Devore Rescue Network team worked tirelessly to save over 3,700 kitties from Devore Shelter, in San Bernardino, CA. Our mission is to ~ Rescue, Rehabilitate and Rehome the cats and kittens of Devore Shelter ~ Saving one kitty at a time ~ No Friendly left behind! ~
However, we wouldn’t have been able to save a single life without the help of those who believe in the work we do and are willing to contribute to our mission.
In addition to pull fees at the shelter that range between $47 to $52, per cat, our expenses also include: transport fees (for short and long distances), short term boarding, basic vetting (spaying or neutering, microchipping, vaccines, snap testing for FeLV and FIV, as well as internal and external parasite treatments), we also deal with medical expenses that go above and beyond for any kitties that are in need of immediate (or emergent) veterinary care… as you can see, the list goes on and on.
Each month we rescue an average of 75 to 100 cats from the notorious high-kill Devore Shelter. On average, each cat costs us about $200 to $250 to rescue and fully vet. And we have many cats who have far exceeded this and range more along the lines of $300 to $700+. Our standards for basic vetting and socialization are so high because we believe that when a kitty is adopted it should be as healthy and happy as can be so that the transition into its new home will be a smooth as possible. That being said, we only charge a $90 adoption fee, which means that for each cat, we lose about $160 that was put into their rehabilitation process.
But that’s okay; we don’t care!
We aren’t in the business of making money or turning a profit…
We’re in the business of SAVING LIVES!
Nonetheless, we just absolutely cannot do it without your continued support. Please, consider a donation to the Kitty Devore Rescue Network today and continue to spread the word about our mission.
The KD Team thanks you – but most of all, the KD kitties who are saved thank you!
