FUNDRAISER FOR LILY
Our gorgeous Lily came to us about a month ago, very close to death. It has been an ongoing battle with her, many trips to the vet, force feeding and more, but we are happy to say she is now well on her way to a full recovery!! The size of a 4-5 month old kitten, she is estimated to be about 7 years old. Her blood tests have revealed good health, but unfortunately, she has severe gingivitis and gum recession, and requires all of her teeth to be removed.
We will be running a couple of different fundraisers over the next few weeks to raise the much needed funds needed to cover her costs so far, and her dental and future costs until she is ready for rehoming. The first of our fundraisers comes from the wonderful Justine from Word Organics. Please check out the below link for more details. These products are amazing, and we cannot recommend them enough.
Gutter Kitties is an Incorporated Charitable Trust. Our current trustees are Danielle Howard (Founder), Benjamin Dickie, Tracey Hammond and Vicki Wallace.
Danielle started rescuing in 2006, and Gutter Kitties was finally established as a trust at the beginning of 2012. We pride ourselves in running a no-kill shelter, and dedicate our time and efforts to rescuing timid, anxious and/or undersocialised cats.
A no-kill shelter is a shelter that does not kill healthy or treatable animals. "It does not matter if an animal is old, unsocialised, blind, deaf, traumatized or has a treatable illness. All of these animals are worthy of our compassion, all of them can find homes, and all of them deserve to."
We have a communal shelter located in Stanmore Bay where these cats first go upon coming into our care. Here they are tamed by a wonderful group of volunteers, and then move into foster homes to prepare them for finding their own human family.
We maintain high standards of animal welfare, professionalism and integrity, and work with other rescue centres and entities as required to achieve our purpose. We strive to educate the public, and promote responsible pet ownership.
Gutter Kitties is a Charitable Trust and is registered with the Charities Commission (CC47721).
