Mice for Cats 2018

This campaign was for the year 2018 and I nearly made my goal and the toys lasted until October.  Then we ran out. I have a new goal and campaign for 2019 under a separate title. If you donated last year and kindly donate here again, it will appear on the 2018 campaign. No worries, the money still goes to the same cause but it's confusing since I am nowhere near reaching my goal. Otherwise, you can donate to this year's efforts at:

Thank you!!
from 2017:

Thank you SO MUCH for your generous donation to my Mice For Cats program. Your donation will go a long way, I can buy toys for hundreds of shelter cats with it.

I hope you will consider sharing this cause with your friends and community so even more cats will have something to play with while they wait to be adopted!Kitties love to play—especially with toy mice! It keeps them active, stimulated and happy. The Palm Springs Animal Shelter  is the only municipal shelter in the Coachella Valley operating under a no kill philosophy and often cares for hundreds of cats at any given time. I want to make sure they never run out of toys!

My GoFundMe goal is to raise $1500 by the end of the year so together we can gift 3000 toy mice* to the shelter. Last year we raised enough to get us through the summer so hopefully this time we can provide a full year of toys for the cats. 

Many of you have supported this cause in the past but supplies are running low and it’s time to re-stock again for 2018. With your donation you can help keep the kitties happy and healthy while the wait for their forever homes. Every donation is deeply appreciated by myself, the shelter staff, and especially the kitties! Even small donations really do add up. $5, $20, $100, whatever suits you. For every dollar you donate you will make 2+ cats very happy! 

Thank you in advance for your support, and please ‘share’ this on Facebook for maximum results.
