What A Month!
I’d love to say October was a great month, but if I am being honest, I am happy to see it go! I won’t bore you with the gory details of the downsides of running a grassroots non-profit, but I can say we ended the month in a much better position than my last email, and for that I am very grateful. We had great support from you, and that allowed us to keep up with our commitment to providing high-quality care to our pets.
Despite the tough month, in October we welcomed 39 homeless pets into our organization. We found loving homes for 43 pets. We also facilitated TNR for 22 community cats.
Thanks to being awarded a vaccine grant from Petco Love, we were able to provide free vaccines to 58 pets in October, protecting them from deadly diseases. We also officially launched our Pet Food Pantry, which will be another great resource for pet owners.
Our FIP cat Pepper is starting to feel much better thanks to the treatment she has been receiving. We were also able to provide emergency medical care to two kittens from Galveston County’s municipal shelter this month through IV fluid therapy and antibiotics we already had on hand. This saved their lives.
Running a non-profit at the level we do, while still being a fairly young organization (just over 3 years old) definitely means finances are always tight. Donations are still the only way we will be able to continue our work.
If you would consider becoming one of our monthly donors, know your impact will be tremendous. A monthly $10 donation adds up to $120 by the end of the year. That could be the difference between us being able to pull an at-risk pet from a local shelter. You can set up a reoccurring donation at www.lifelinetx.org/donate.
As we start to reach the end of the year, we hope you will consider a donation. Remember, all donations through our organization are tax-deductible! Why send your money to the government when you can send it to the animals?
We have some exciting things planned for November, and I can’t wait to share them with you next month.
Thanks for reading!
