All They Want For Christmas..

By Juanita Peoples

ALL THEY WANT FOR CHRISTMAS…

Christmas, the most wonderful time of the year for many. Unfortunately, Christmas in animal rescue means more dumped animals, more vet bills, less carers available, less adoptions, less fundraising opportunities, more strain emotionally as well as financially, and the hope that we can just make it through the season.

Our general monthly vet bill is currently sitting at roughly $20,000. That’s an average month. The last few months for Capricorn Animal Aid has far outdone our average. We have been getting SO MANY dumped, sick, injured and tiny kittens and puppies. The bills have spiked, and our fundraising opportunities have lessened due to the busyness of the season and the fact people just don’t have spare funds to donate. We understand this, we really do. Our volunteers and carers are angels to us, dipping into their pockets as much as possible to assist with food for their fosters as well as transporting to and from vet appointments and just generally handling the mental load that this season takes on for those involved with the care of these sick babies. Capricorn Animal Aid have over 150 cats and kittens in care currently. ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY! This is unheard of for us. Dogs and puppies have reached our limit also.

We don’t like asking for help, but my gosh WE NEED IT right now. We physically and financially cannot take in more animals at this stage. That doesn’t mean the need for us to take in more animals lessens, it just means our volunteers are stretched, as are our finances, and we can’t do it!

PLEASE, if you are able to help us this Christmas I know about 200+ animals and their foster carers and adoption coordinators that would be so appreciative of ANY assistance you are able to offer. Any amount helps, trust us, it all adds up! If you can’t donate money, please think about throwing an extra bag of cat litter or kitten food into your trolley in your weekly shop. We have donation bins scattered all over the place and will post the locations in the comments. PLEASE HELP US HELP THESE SICK BABIES GET TO THEIR FUREVER HOMES!

If you are thinking of adding to your family… PLEASE ADOPT! These animals have fought hard to get through everything they have handled so far, they deserve amazing homes and unconditional love FUREVER!

DONATE. FOSTER. VOLUNTEER. ADOPT, DON’T SHOP!

You guys do amazing work. I got my dog Buddy from CAA about 5 years ago. He lights up my life so I am forever grateful to those who saved him. Merry Xmas.
