Wow! What incredible support we received for the fundraiser to help Animalkind in Hudson, New York rebuild their shelter and get back on their feet! We surpassed our original goal of $1,000 on the first day, and then we crushed our new goal and raised more than $6,000! Thank you so much to everyone who contributed and to everyone who helped spread the word. These funds will go a long way in helping with the rebuild, plus The Vertical Cat will now donate $500 worth of products to the new shelter so the kitties will be climbing in style!
Out of everyone who made a donation, three luck winners have been randomly selected to receive the prizes. One will receive the grand prize of $250 worth of climbing products from The Vertical Cat, plus two other contributors will each receive a 3-step Cat Stair. A big thank you to Kathie and her team over at The Vertical Cat for these amazing prizes! Please check your email for a message from me via GiveForward notifying you if you won.
Here’s a message from the Director of Animalkind, Katrin Hecker:
Many many thanks and purrs to all of you who donated so generously to help us rebuild our facility and to Moderncat for organizing this incredible fundraiser for Animalkind!
We are deeply touched by your support and want you to know that you made a big difference in the lives of homeless and unwanted felines as well as in our hearts and souls! Your support not only gives us a head start to rebuild, it also gave us a boost of hope, knowing that so many people are out there with a heart for the animals and compassion for the forgotten felines.
Our heart felt thanks to all of you who made this miracle happen — you are our angels!
We would love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can update you on the progress and invite you all to our GRAND OPENING in the spring!
At this point we have the design ready and will start putting the renovation job out for bids. We will keep you posted on our website: www.animalkind.info.
