Hi, instead of the 'usual Christmas gifts' like chocolate and bottles of wine for people who have everything already, I decided to sponsor two cats at Paw Pad Rescue in Stanmore Bay instead. For as little as $5 per week you can select one of the cats on the photos and set up an automatic weekly payment to help with food and other costs.
Gutter Kitties is an Incorporated Charitable Trust. Founder and Chair Danielle Howard started rescue work in 2006, and Gutter Kitties was finally established as a Trust at the beginning of 2012.
They maintain high standards of animal welfare, professionalism and integrity, and work with other rescue centres and entities as required to achieve their purpose. They also strive to educate the public, and promote responsible pet ownership. The communal shelter The Paw Pad is located in Stanmore Bay, and this is where unsocialised street cats first go upon coming into their care. Here they are tamed by a wonderful group of volunteers, and then move into foster homes to prepare them for finding their own human family.
With an average of 35-40 residents at any one time, the expenses are huge. Please consider sponsoring one of the lovely Paw Pad rescues from just $5 per week. Please go to the website and find a cat that you would like to sponsor on a regular basis.
If you scroll down that page you can see the photos of all current 'residents' and pick one.
FOSTER HOMES NEEDED
Once the rescues are socialised, they then move into a foster home to integrate them in a family environment and prepare them for adoption. Fostering one of the Paw Pad rescues is hugely rewarding.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in providing a temporary (or permanent) home to one or more of these gorgeous babies.
A no-kill shelter is defined as "a shelter that does not kill healthy or treatable animals". It does not matter if an animal is old, unsocialised, blind, deaf, traumatized or has a treatable illness. All of these animals are worthy of our compassion, all of them can find homes, and all of them deserve to."
When I started taking Yoga classes, I wanted to buy my own bolster and eye pillow, but it was difficult to find items, that I really liked. So I decided to create my own and turn it into a business. I wanted my products to be beautiful, natural and practical.
