How to help Rad Cat after closure

$30,700 of $1.2M goal

Raised by 426 people in 5 months
Update March 5, 2019

We want to again express our sincere gratitude for all of the well-wishes and kind donations to this page.  We will always be grateful.

We continue our efforts to wind down our company.  We do not have any news we can share regarding a possible re-boot at the time of this message.  However, as part of our closing, we will be shutting down the GoFundMe campaign as of March 15, 2019.  Any funds collected will be used to pay our vendors as we promised.

Happy New Year - Update January 18, 2018

Lots of folks have been asking us for an update, and with the start of a new year we are hoping for a brighter future.  The process of closing takes a while and we will continue until it is done.  As for an update on a possible investment partner to bring Rad Cat back strong as ever…we have had lots of contact from folks interested in investing which is wonderful.  We are currently communicating with a potential partner, but due to confidentiality we can’t say any more at this time.  This is all very positive and we are excited for the future.  We will let all of you know more when we can.  We are so grateful for all the donations and words of comfort and support – we have read them all!  We will at some point be taking this fundraiser down as things wind up and we are ready to move forward with the next life for Rad Cat.  Trust that we will let all of you know through facebook or the website when we are able to say more.   Please keep the faith.

Update 12/21/18

Hello everyone.  As we wind down the year, we are looking back and are still pretty much in a state of shock over what has happened to our company.  We are still closing our facilities, and sadly, saying goodbye to employees.  We are so grateful to all of you for your kind words and donations - every day.  All of these funds will go to pay our loyal vendors, and to help us in our efforts to bring Rad Cat back.  There is reason to be optimistic for 2019, and we will share more when we can.  Please give the kitties a scratch for us, and we are thankful to all of you.  Here's to a happy, healthy, and Rad new year.

Update 11/19/18

It is with a sense of great sadness that we enter into the Thanksgiving week without our wonderful employees and with our business closed.  We are continuing the closing process – it does take time. 

We have been overwhelmed by the comments and emails – the kindness everyone has shown us.  We will respond if we possibly can.  We are continuing to work to find a partner that can help up bring Rad Cat back to all of the kitties and their wonderful parents.  We appreciate all of the encouragement, and we are working hard to make this happen.

We wish all of you a happy thanksgiving…we will continue to provide updates…your contributions are helping more that you know….

Update 11/5/18

To all of the well-wishers, and those of you who have shared photos of your kitties who have loved and thrived with Rad Cat over the years, we send you all hugs and great big thank you’ s.  We are still searching for that perfect partner to bring the right combination of culture and love for the brand.  And to all of you who have donated – we can’t tell you enough how much we appreciate your kind words and this gesture.  We will do the best we can and appreciate all your help.  Be Rad!

Update: 10/29/18

We are truly amazed at the outpouring of love and kind messages we have received during this difficult time.  Thank you to everyone who has emailed and sent words of encouragement.  Your donations and support have been so heartfelt - we are still grasping the scope of this loss, not only to us but to all of you and your fur babies who have depended on us for all these years.  It is to all of you that we are truly sorry.

We were sent this article this morning:

Thank you for spreading the word, and we will be sharing additional information soon.  We are continuing to look for help and will do our very best.
Janice.

Update: 10/22/18

Tracey and I express our deepest gratitude for all the warm wishes, photos, stories and contributions we have seen over the last week.

Know that we are as heartbroken as all of you, and this is not what we wanted for our special company and its employees.  We appreciate all the generosity and love that has been shown to us during this difficult time.  As mentioned here, these funds will be used to pay our loyal vendors balances owed to them – in hopes that there may be a way, with help, that we can re-boot the brand.  Funds not used to pay vendors, or toward a re-boot will go to charity.  Thank you all for your kindness.

To our loyal and wonderful friends and customers:

As you know we have had to close our business after 14 years of providing cats with the best food we could possibly make.  We are incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support and love from everyone.

Many of you have asked us to start a funding page to help fund our re-boot.  We are so humbled by the encouragement.  We have decided to do this but need to let all of you know what this fundraiser is for.

Over the 14 years we have been in business, we have had many wonderful vendors and suppliers and distributors who have supported us along the way.  This closure of our business has left us with a need to pay our vendors.  Any funds raised on this site will go first to pay them. 

If there are funds left over, we will use them to help re-boot this brand, either with an investor partner or on our own – in whatever form that may take.  If by chance we are unable to re-boot in any form, any excess funds will be donated to various charities we have supported during our time in this business.

Please accept our gratitude for any contribution you make – we will be forever grateful.  We are not asking anyone to donate.  If you choose to for the purpose stated here, we are so very thankful. 

Please continue to support raw food – and as always – Feed your Felines like the carnivores they are!®
