Donors sought to as­sist in an­i­mal shel­ter cat adop­tions

Serve Daily - - BUILDING COMMUNITY -

The Utah Val­ley An­i­mal Res­cue is team­ing up with the South Utah Val­ley An­i­mal Shel­ter to help get cats and kit­tens adopted. Both or­ga­ni­za­tions feel very strongly that ev­ery fe­line should be fixed, vac­ci­nated and mi­crochipped be­fore leav­ing the shel­ter. A lot of peo­ple do not un­der­stand how much it costs. How­ever, we still need to get them into homes.

The two or­ga­ni­za­tions are seek­ing other busi­nesses, or­ga­ni­za­tions or in­di­vid­u­als who would be will­ing to also part­ner with them in this en­deavor. Our so­lu­tion: UVAR is putting to­gether a gift bag to go home with ev­ery adopter. For ex­am­ple: if the new adopter pays $15 for a cat and re­ceives, say, $40 in coupons and small items, we will be able to help many of them find homes. Ev­ery cat adopted un­der this pro­mo­tion will be spayed/neutered, vac­ci­nated and mi­crochipped.

Op­por­tu­nity 1: You can spon­sor 10 cats for $165, which would cover the mi­crochip and the ra­bies vac­ci­na­tion. The adopter would pay the re­main­ing $15 to adopt the cat but re­ceive a gift bag worth sig­nif­i­cantly more.

Op­por­tu­nity 2: You can do­nate a coupon or small item for our gift bags.

The cost break­down is as fol­lows: $15 SUVAS adop­tion fee: This fee is to cover the cost of food, lit­ter, staff, etc. Free spay/neuter: Ser­vices per­formed free of charge by Best Friends An­i­mal So­ci­ety.

$1.50 Ra­bies vac­ci­na­tion. Free dis­tem­per se­ries: Vac­cines are pro­vided by Best Friends An­i­mal So­ci­ety. $15 Mi­crochip.
