BayStateAnimalCoop's Furrrever Home

$1,725 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 40 people in 22 months
Hey there supporters....we are still here seeking funds to put towards our furrever home and need your help! We are rallying a big fundraiser and great team building event in the Fall to support this effort. See our website (Ultimate Team Challenge tab) for more details.
This event along with the continued Go Fund Me efforts are crucial to generate funds needed for the projected $30K expense of a used modular building proposed to be placed on municipal property!!!!
Please keep spreading the word. We are crippled by "NOT" having a central location, our rescue efforts are stiffled as our energy is being exhausted trying to organize the animals in our care.
Make a new location become a reality by spreading the word....you wont be sorry as we have already proven that in a central location we thrive and the community benefits in so many ways.
We still need a location to thrive in...now, immediate, yesterday.....With our foster homes full and limited exposure to the public, our donations will be affected and our services could become less prominent!

WHY WE NEED A PLACE OF OUR VERY OWN:

The Bay State Animal Cooperative is seeking a REAL home to continue their mission! We need a space to grow and offer programs to the community.


Who Are We?
We are a unique group of volunteers commited to help each of our rescues on a case by case basis. We go above and beyond for any animal we rescue. We have been a 501(c)3 rescue organization since 2009. We practice a 100% no-kill philosophy. To us EVERY life matters. We have directly saved the lives of over 1200+ cats through our all-volunteer foster based program with over 50 wonderful volunteers.
Additonally, we financially support and physically care for 4 colonies daily and provide all resources, medical, shelter, food and love to over 45 foster cats daily. Many of the fosters have behavioral or physical exceptionalities or are striving to become better felines for their furrrever homes!

What is our goal?
We need a place to call our own so we can operate, grow, rescue, assist and make a bigger difference.

We are ready to "spread our wings and fly". But as a small grass-roots organization we are proud to spend every dollar on our felines. However, since we do not have "highly paid executives" shaking hands and attending elbow rubbing events we have a harder time securing consistent corporate funding. That's why we need YOUR Help to make all the difference!

We believe everything begins with this new HOME we want to create for the felines we help and the community we are a part of.

"I visualize a home where we can save more and more felines and continue to offer the community many hours of educational outreach, community service hours, and a place to enjoy the comforts that animals can provide!!!"-Marcia-President/Founder

We need fellow animal lovers, LIKE YOU to have faith in what we do, what we can do and what we want to do.

Our kitties ask you to please consider us as your cause and we/they can assure you that this will be a donation you will never regret making!

We want to purchase a "home" or similar space to call "home"!

WHY OUR OWN SPACE?
A place where we can create separate rooms, with  un-limited creativity options will provide the following for our rescue kitties:

*an adoption space with a "home-like" environment
*an emergency rescue space
*a feline leukemia sanctary
*a respite space for the old and weary
*a trap-neuter-return recovery space
*a place to read, have a cup of tea or even play a board game while the cats roam free
*a place to educate the youth of our community about animals and their needs 
*a place to try other arts that work along side the care and comfort of felines (music, sewing, art, photography????)
*a place for people of all ages to seek the joy of felines! 
*a place for people with exceptionalities to explore animals and develop life skills
*offer and support spay/neuter resources
* last but surely not least.....a central location to call home to the volunteers and to the community as well as the felines! This will strengthen our abilty to implement the organization's mission and programs better.

Did You Know:
We happily share our kitties with many with "exceptionalities", youth, seniors, at risk teens, and provide the love of a feline to those who can not have a cat of their own. We  take pleasure in sharing the enjoyment our felines.

Our volunteers really matter!!!

Please be our guardian angel, our friend, Donate today......"Every dollar matters, do not let our campaign goal prevent you from any donation (small or large) you can provide, let our goal inspire you to be a part of this life saving venture".
