Donors sought to assist in animal shelter cat adoptions
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.
