Coachella Valley Cat Club (CVCC), a nonprofit 501( c )(3) founded in 2020 as a cat welfare and rescue organization, has announced its first fundraiser with Quick Quack Car Wash and invites you to get your car clean while supporting the organization’s mission of cat welfare, rescue, and feral Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) efforts. The vouchers can be used at any of the Valley locations as well as nationwide. Money raised is applied to veterinarian expenses for treating illness and injuries, vaccinations, feral TNR costs, and supplies such as food, litter, cat towers and kennels.
CVCC has rescued over 40 cats since being founded, and now has kittens and one year old cats that are still in need of forever homes. Donations by the community can support and keep CVCC active as there is a dire need for financial help to be able to expand the ability to rescue more kittens and cats, notably as the temperatures rise to 120 degrees; and to continue caring for the current rescues.
“I founded this nonprofit as I rescued more cats and was experiencing mounting feed and veterinarian expenses, and didn’t want to leave the new litters of kittens behind and allow their moms to continue to reproduce, but there are limitations on supporting these efforts as an individual,” said Founder Chris Martello. “These rescued kittens become socialized and adorable and the long-term strays become re-socialized and all of their personalities are what keep us going, all so precious and different and we are saddened when we can’t rescue them due to lack of space with kennels. Now as a nonprofit organization ALL of the money donated or raised goes right back into the cats, there are no profits and no paid employees, and people can take tax deductions for donating.”
If you need your car washed – who doesn’t – visit www.cvcatclub.org and click on the Donate option, enter your donation of at least $10, and CVCC will immediately mail you the voucher. CVCC will soon offer levels of club membership to support cat rescue efforts with an auto-payment monthly donation, which will soon be added to the website.
In addition, contributions to feeding and supplies can be made through the verified nonprofit rescue Chewy Wish List program and are greatly appreciated. The needed items can be found at https://www.chewy.com/g/coachella-valley-cat-club_b73706814. Please note: Chewy does not disclose donation providers, so please feel free to drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org, so that we may send a token of our appreciation.
