It takes a lot more than good intentions to run any animal rescue centre correctly.
It needs compassion, commitment, objectivity, experience and skills in:-
• Plus the determination and ability to initiate community action.
It is also true that it costs money.
As soon as a cat is taken into the care of Chats du Quercy Cat Rescue and Rehoming Centre, there are associated costs, including: food, medicine and veterinary fees.
On average, each cat in our care costs 300€.
Running Chats du Quercy costs 7000€ per month.
A few more figures that may enlighten you –
• Chats du Quercy average monthly food bill is 1300€
• Chats du Quercy average monthly litter bill is 500€
• Chats du Quercy spend almost 1300€ annually on flea and worm treatments
There are many people who work very hard to ensure our doors stay open. It is a full-time job to do fund-raising alone, not counting the hours put into the actual animal care. Understandably, people want to be certain their money is put to good use.
Whatever donation you are able to make, you can be sure they you are helping an established, reputable charity that has built an excellent reputation and has shown it is serious, knowledgeable, successful and dedicated to cat welfare.
