Kitty information kit for Dandy Cat Rescue
Dandy Cat Rescue is a brand new group of volunteer foster carers who formed in January. We focus exclusively on rescuing cats and kittens from the streets of Greater Dandenong.
We need to spread the word about what we do and we want to run an education program accessible to everyone of all ages, nationalities and backgrounds. Through creation of an education pack, we will let the community know we are here to help.
The major costs associated with the project are
We plan on developing and printing a brochure - in part in some of the main languages other than English that are spoken in the Greater Dandenong community - to include in the information pack. We will also create a responsible pet ownership booklet as well as a list of handy tips for the care of adopted rescue cats and kittens.
The $1,000 grant will be used
The money will go directly towards the printing costs. Initially we aim to print 200 brochures and booklets and will work to source more donations to enable us to do a second print run of 300 brochures and booklets.
How they raise the rest of the funding
We have approached Bunnings Dandenong to begin hosting regular fundraising sausage sizzles, we plan to seek community grants from the City of Greater Dandenong Council, and we will make appeals to pet food supply companies, pet store chains and other associated pet businesses. Our foster carers are also going to contribute to this project out of their own pockets as this project - and the rescue itself - means everything to us.
