Hello to everyone everywhere. Because of economical setbacks (I lost my job and my mother lost part of her pension) we are unable to continue our helping of street animals in our area. For 10 years now we have 5 cats at home and about 10 cats (changes every year) and a dog (who sometimes brings friends) in the garden of my mothers building and street which we feed and help as much as we can.And 4 cats in the garden of my own building where I live. We also try to provide medical care when needed.
Sadly in 2016, I lost my job and my mother lost a part of her pension. Because of these setbacks we have run in to financial distress which prevents us from helping further as we can't afford it. As cat food and dog food etc. is very expensive in Turkey. For example :
1 tin Whiskas = 3,-€ / 4,-$
14 Kg Whiskas dry food = 35,-€ / 45,-$
Kitty Litter Box sand 10 Kg = 5,-€ / 6,-$
And I am not even starting about dog food or medical attention...
We would not start this funding request if we didn't have to..But we are really in a tight spot here. What we need and hope to find is supporters for 200,-$ a month. So we can continue to feed and support these little creatures. It would mean a hundred people donating 2,-$ a person or 200 people donating a Dollar.
To show that we are really using this money for the animals , I create a newsletter to send to our supporters. I will also provide pictures of the animals we support.
Even reading this is a support to us. So thank you. If you can help , then on the behalf of our little friends we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
