November 2020 Newsletter

Greetings Yogie and Friends Fans!

November is here! Where has this year gone? It has been a very strange, and challenging, year to say the least. We hope this update finds all of our friends well.

PAWS IN THE PARK: We want to thank Realtor’s to the Rescue for hosting another, very fun and successful, Paws in the Park. We had the opportunity to catch up with some of our rescue friends we don’t often get a chance to, meet old friends, and, new ones alike. Thank you to everyone who came out to support the event, and, for Yogie and Friends. We greatly appreciate you all.

CHEWY: Chewy has finally created a way for rescues to do a wish list with them. We have set up our wish list and here is the link to order items off the wish list for our cats.

VET BILLS: We had a couple of vet emergencies, which wracked up bills of more than $1400. We realize it is part of the cost of doing what we do, but we sure could use your help to replenish the coffers if you can help in anyway.

SPONSORSHIP:  Sponsorship is a great way to help support our cats. By sponsoring one of the FIV cats you will be providing food, medical care, and their basic care and support. 100% of the sponsorship goes to the care of these animals. If each cat had a regular, monthly, sponsor, it would help ease the burden of care for the animals we provide sanctuary for. Please consider sponsoring one of our animals.  The cats really need you.

Please note that more than one person may sponsor a cat but rest assured that all sponsor funds are used for the ongoing care of our cats.

You can sponsor a cat for just $15 a month, $45 a quarter, or $180 a year.

FINANCIAL SUPPORT: Your donations are the most important thing to help us with our animals. We are a 501(C)(3) non-profit, in good standing. Your donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. We can really use help with funds to buy food, veterinarian care, and everyday care of the wellbeing of the animals. Thank you for your support.

We are spending about $1500 a month on food and litter.

CRITICAL NEEDS: Right now, we need a great deal of help with items such as cat litter and food. We really need Scoopable cat litter, no lightweight as they can present a dangerous ingestion and blockage issue, and we use Friskies canned pate, Fancy Feast canned pate, and Purina Naturals dry food. We have an Amazon wish list that makes it easier to order, or you can order any other way that is convenient to you. If you donate cash, check, or PayPal, we can purchase the items as well.

AMAZON WISH LIST: We have updated our Amazon wish list; we have added much needed food items and cat litter. Also, when you shop via Smile.Amazon.com you can select Yogie and Friends as your charity of choice and they will donate a percentage of the sales to us. It is an extremely easy way to help.

PAYPAL: Did you know you can do automatic monthly donations to Yogie and Friends via PayPal? This is an easy and effective way to help our fundraising for the animals. You can also choose to pay the fees by selecting the Friends and Family option in PayPal ensuring we would receive the entire amount of your donation. Our PayPal is: yogieandfriends@hotmail.com
