Dear Friends of Give Me Shelter,

We are at a crossroads financially and do not currently have the funds to take in any more cats. Unfortunately, our Spring fundraiser fell short of our goal. Our immediate concern is our inability to medically support the cats currently in our system. As a result, we have placed a moratorium on taking in cats until we are able to raise funds for medical care. Kitten season has depleted our resources because of the multitude of adult and senior cats at risk this time of year. As you know, Give Me Shelter not only takes on behavior cats but also cats with medical treatable issues.

Give Me Shelter's sanctuary has taken in numerous barn cats (ferals) who have no other options. Our sanctuary also houses cats waiting for spaces in our adoption centers. Sadly, we faced a tragedy this week. One of our young adoptable cats, Connor, only one year old was viciously attacked by a coyote on the property. He sustained numerous puncture wounds and was diagnosed with bilateral distal fractures. This required a $3,400 orthopedic surgery which was performed on July 15th. Due to this incident we are desperate to install a coyote proof fence which will protect the cats from predators and keep them safe on the property. In addition, we have a substantial outstanding balance at our veterinarian's clinic.

The calls and requests for help to save lives have not slowed or stopped. It saddens us that with our current financial position we are unable to help. We desperately need you to help us keep our doors open and continue to save lives. Our immediate goal is to raise $15K to keep us afloat. Please consider making a one time donation to help us meet our needs or set up a reoccurring monthly contribution that will ensure we can continue our work.

With gratitude,

Lana Bajsel
Founder/Director
