Frequently Asked Questions
How can I donate?
Is my donation tax-deductible?
Yes! Smelly Cat Rescue is a 501c3 charity and, as such, your donation is fully tax-deductible.
How is my donation being used?
We use most donations to run the rescue’s day-to-day operations for the cats in our care, including food, medicine, litter, toys and bedding, but also for things like spay and neuter services, emergency treatments, general vet services and rescue efforts. Checkout some examples below!
Can I donate for a specific cat or event?
Of course! Leave a note on your donation that it is meant for a specific cat or event and we’ll be sure to apply it to that cause. We’ll also sometimes be asking for donations for a certain cat’s surgery or treatment so its a great way to make sure your funds are doing the most good where you want.
Can I donate items instead of money?
Please consider being a friend to Smelly Cat Rescue by making a donation, purchasing an item from our Amazon wishlist, or signing up as a parent foster on GivingTuesday, November 29.
What is GivingTuesday? GivingTuesday is an initiative that started in 2012 as a way to inspire people to give, support, and celebrate their favorite charities, causes, and nonprofits. A moment to pause among our consumer spending to focus on those that serve our communities to support them on this specific day. Check out the graphic below to see the impact of your donation and just how far your dollars can go to help the homeless, stray and abandoned cats and kittens in our community when you give to our rescue.
We are so thankful to everyone who contributes to our small but mighty team of parent fosters and volunteers who work so hard to help the cats who come into our care know love, comfort and find their FURever homes. We hope you will consider becoming a Friend of Smelly Cat Rescue this GivingTuesday and beyond!
