Smokey Acres could do so much good with $1000! Please allow me to explain.
We are a sanctuary specializing in life-long care for cats infected with feline leukemia (FeLV) and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV.) We serve our human and animal community by accepting residents from other rescue groups, humane societies and the general public. Cats infected with FeLV/FIV present transmission risk to healthy cat populations and we are often their last hope for life.
FeLV and FIV are immune compromising viruses. FeLV/FIV positive cats require specialized and costly care. Our financial resources are the number one limiting factor in admission rates.
We are a 100% volunteer managed organization thus, all donations are spent on the mission. Every cat we accept gives a sense of relief, and often tears of joy, from those members of our community desperate to find a place for their cat to call home.
