We are a small group of Solo rescuers here in Bali. We have always covered our own costs for our rescues food and medical bills without ever asking for donations. We are now struggling, as some had businesses here that are now closed until tourism comes back, or some have businesses that are barely surviving. We have all previously raised money for other animal support groups, but now find ourselves looking for help. Yes, call us "crazy cat ladies" but generally the rescues are dumped, and we ended up with them. A lot come as tiny babies and need bottle feeding 2-3 hourly. Some with medical conditions that need urgent care.
We have NEVER before asked or received any donations, as we have been able to care for them from our own incomes or savings. But this is getting harder and harder.
We also realise that a lot of people are also in the same boat. So we are only asking anyone who could donate a small amount if they can... $5.00 goes a long way to feeding the animals. We understand that many donate to charities to look after people, but animals here are our passion, and often forgotten about. Their wellbeing is important to us.
For many who know me, know I have been rescuing here for 12 years. We often take animals from people who do not contribute anything when we take them.
To us, it about the animals… so please consider a small contribution, if you can…
