About Campaignends 24 May 2021, 11:59 PM
Community Cats - CWS has been funding the sterilisation of approximately 4000 cats each year. We continue to assist community caregivers with the sterilisation of cats in residential, commercial and industrial areas. This is an on-going programme.
Pet Cats - We have been helping low-income families sterilise their pet cats. Without such assistance, the cat population within the house quickly grows out of control and the cats will not have sufficient resources or be at risk of abandonment.
Our fundraiser target is $62,400 representing 2 months of sterilisation costs:
1. Community cats - 300 slots with microchipping /month through Stray Cat Sterilisation Programme (cost partially subsidised by AVS)
2. Pet cats - 100 slots with microchipping/month (cost fully borne by CWS)
3. Trapping & transport - 45 slots/ month
Monthly cost: $31,200 after deducting estimated AVS subsidies for sterilisation and microchipping costs of community cats only.
