First of all, we want to thank everyone who has ever donated to our previous campaigns, purchased pet supplies or Cat Forest admissions from us, or helped spread the word about Catoro and our mission. All of the support we have received is the only reason Catoro has been able to continue operating since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. We have been able to find homes for an additional 250+ rescue cats since re-opening the Cat Forest in July 2020, all thanks to the support for Catoro.
Catoro has been open for nearly 2 years now, and like all small businesses, we’ve had some struggles along the way. Through honesty and transparency, we’ve been able to adapt to the new changes and continue operating. One difference about our business model is that we aren’t just working with food and retail, but we are also assisting the lives of the cats that come to us. These are vulnerable animals that need our help.
Many of our followers know that our rescue partner, Cat Therapy and Rescue Society, has been very busy during the Covid-19 pandemic. They have continued their TNR programs, rescue missions, and adoption process during this time. The demand for adopting has been climbing, and the rescue has worked hard every day to find the cats their forever home.
Recently, Catoro has been wanting to make some changes and upgrades to the Cat Forest and cat rooms. The rescue does help with some of the supplies for the cats, but Catoro also pays for certain items as well. This GoFundMe would serve as Catoro’s Cat Room Supplies Fund. This is so that CTRS can instead put more of their funds into life-saving medical procedures and treatments for more cats.
Here is a list of some supplies and upgrades Catoro would love to work towards, using the funds from this GoFundMe:
* Microchip Scanner
* New vacuum
* New water fountain
* PPE (gloves, gowns, etc)
* IV lines and subcutaneous fluids
* Special-Diet Cat Food
* Supplements and Treats
* Toys and cat furniture
* Cleaning solutions and tools
* Storage bins and organizers
* New Quarantine Enclosures
With this new fundraising campaign, Catoro will be able to have their own set of tools and supplies, instead of having to borrow items from the rescue. These upgrades will help us operate more efficiently, and would help provide even better care for the cats who stay at Catoro. Any donations are greatly appreciated, and will go towards aiding more rescue cats find their forever homes. Other ways to support Catoro are by visiting our Cat Forest and Cafe, purchasing pet supplies or products on our online store, or simply sharing on social media or leaving a positive review helps us so much! We are always blown away by the love and support. Thank you so much!
