It's Frank the Godfather here… I’m gonna make you an offer you can't refuse. I want to recruit yous to be captains in my, how you say, organization. In order for you to completely understand, I want to tell yous about the sanctuary and express to you the challenges and needs of my empire, um… I mean the sanctuary. If it wasn't for Fur & Feather, I may be swimming with the fishes by now. These people do good work. I hope in expressing my needs for my empire, that you be loyal to The Family as we need your help, and one day… A favor will be given for your generous actions and contributions.
In order for me to run my empire it takes some moolah. You know, some dead presidents… Even though it's a small empire, and we have not built the big sanctuary yet… We still have monthly expenses that I don't believe people account for. Now you need to understand, these people do not get paid and this is all volunteer work. However, what is needed to run the empire, in its current state, does not grow on olive trees. This is not some street-corner racket that some other punks may be running. This is grassroots, hard-working people making a difference.
First order of Business is to keep the place up and running this year~
Here's the rundown of what it takes monthly:
- Rent - $1000
- cleaning supplies-$500
- dog and cat food-$800
- cat litter-$250
- medical supplies-$300
- average monthly medical-$2000 - this is not include emergency medical
- foster care(this is food and medical) - $200 to $500 - it all depends how many in foster and how much medical
Second order is to hijack…I mean procure a vehicle for major transportation and something that can double as a mobile adoption rig …. Something likes a Camper Van or RV that can be converted to house other animals from The Family.
Now, as yous know, being the Godfather can be tough. But, I hope that you can now understand why we are always money collecting. My constituents, Simon The Pie Man and Bosco Little Man will be checkin in on ya’s and can answer any questions you feel relevant to ask.
FUR & FEATHER ANIMAL SANCTUARY'S goal is to build the first fully solar & wind powered, no-kill sanctuary in California. The sanctuary will serve as a solution for rescue agencies who desperately need homes for animals & as a runover for city & county shelters who are already overcrowded resulting in the reduction of unneccesary euthanization.
The 60-acre sanctuary will house an adoption center & shelter for dogs, cats, horses, birds, pigs and any animal in need of shelter. SOme may need short term housing while others who may be ill, frail, or old can find a permanent home. A veterinary clinic will provide free spay/neuter services. The educational center will offer classes in animal care & behavior. The equestrian center will house horses & offer rides to the public.
YOUR DONATIONS WILL HELP BUILD THE SANCTUARY!
