Help for Mountain City’s Pets and Strays
While Mountain City, TN. is fortunate to have animal control, there are still a woeful amount of stray dogs and cats that have no home. Most of these strays are simply dropped off at the end of a road or left tied to a sign. Someone will see them and take pity, right? Someone will give them a home and food. How do you feed an animal when you can’t feed yourself? These animals need to be housed, fed and vetted. Utility bills, food bills, supply bills and vet bills add up.... fast. That’s why this gofundme is being set up. All monies collected by this fund will go to providing what is needed most to see that Mountain City’s strays are properly cared for and found loving furever homes. That could be for kitty litter, dog food, cleaning supplies, but most of all, toward the vetting of these animals. That means these animals will be given their needed shots, spayed or neutered and any other medical attention that’s needed. In order to adopt out an animal, by law they must have their rabies shots and either be spayed or neutered or have a deposit taken if they are still currently too young for the surgery. Rescues will only accept animals that are healthy, current on shots and spayed or neutered. Adoptions, Rescues and Fosters are the only way to avoid euthanasia of adoptable animals. Up until two years ago, stray animals faced an 80% euthanasia rate. That rate has dropped to an unbelieveable 0%! Again, your donations will go towards whatever is needed most to continue to save the lives of the animals who would only be turned out, abandoned or become an easy meal for a predator.+ Read More
We have been informed by Mountain City’s lawyer that we can not reference Mountain City Animal Control or the Animal Control Officer in our campaign. So I have removed those references from our story. However, I’m pretty sure freedom of speech is covered in the comment section. So, I’m posting this note, as a comment, with the hopes of avoiding a lawsuit and to attempt to refrain for causing the city unduly embarrassment by “begging” for donations. All monies raised by this campaign is still and will always be used to help the entity which cannot be named to save as many animals as possible. Thank you for all your support!
We’ve had a few people who wanted to donate but didn’t want to pay the percentage tip. You can drop down the tip list, choose other and put the amount to $0. Go Fund Me will take out of the donation itself a fee of 2.9% of the donation plus a $.30 credit card transaction fee. In order to keep this platform free.... it’s worth the 2.9%. So, there you go. You don’t have to pay the percentage tip yourself. Your donations are safe and secure and they are monitored and recorded by the site. You can rest assured your donations sans the small fee are going 100% to this great cause!
We have had three generous donations! Every cent will go towards getting the city’s homeless strays ready to find a loving home. Hopefully we can keep up the great work so that our shelter will always be able to give these animals a much better chance at being adopted!
