Help Build A New Cat Adoption Center
Organized by: Karen Williams
Animal Talk Rescue needs your help! Animal Talk Rescue is a nonprofit, no-kill cat rescue in Seattle, responsible for saving over 9,000 cats and kittens in the last 13 years! We unexpectedly lost the lease on our adoption center in October, and we now need your help to build a new adoption center for our cats (all safely in foster care for now). While this situation is unexpected, it gives us the great opportunity to go back to the drawing board and create a beautiful new adoption center that will let us grow and increase our adoptions. Your gift today will help us pay for the costs of renovations to our new space, so that we can get our doors open and get back to the very important work we're so passionate about: rescuing cats and kittens! Renovations have begun! With help from supporters like you, we're now hard at work on renovations at our new adoption center! We need your help to finish the job, please donate or share our fundraiser with your friends! Our new space is at 14717 Aurora Ave N, just over the boarder between Seattle and Shoreline. It's a bright, open space, which will make for a warm and welcoming adoption center. Best of all, the rent is very affordable, leaving more resources for the cats and kittens in our care. The cages in our old space didn't belong to us, so we can't take them with us. But this is a great opportunity to purchase new adoption enclosures that will be more comfortable for the cats, keep the cats happy and healthy, and help promote more adoptions. The cost of renovation: $21,292 for HVAC improvements $2,800 for plumbing $5,000* for flooring Other costs such as electrical, not yet quoted ------------------------------------------ $29,092- Current estimated cost *Estimated cost, final flooring bid still pending Adoption Center Goals A warm and welcoming environment We want to welcome you with natural light, warm colors, and positive attitudes. New retail space Adopters will be able to buy everything they need for their new cat or kitten from our boutique kitty supply store. 100% of net profit will go to care for the cats. Support a great adoption process From a waiting area to adoption desks, we want to make sure our space has all the details we need to take people through a great adoption experience, from start to finish! Durable and customizable adoption displays The enclosures we’ve chosen are made by Snyder Manufacturing. We chose Snyder for their quality and durability, and for the customizable design that meets our needs. For instance, our cages will have a hidden compartment for the litter box. Keeping the litter box out of sight doesn’t just look better, it reduces odor, reduces the spread of illness, and it keeps the adoption display cleaner! Especially with rowdy kittens. Bigger and better spaces for our cats Adoption units will come in a range of sizes up to 4 feet wide. With room to stretch and play, cats will be happier and potential adopters will be able to better appreciate each cat’s individual personality. Please donate and share now!
