Thank You, Matching Campaign exceeds 100%

Dear Friends,

I remember seeing a film, as a young girl where a young man was sent to war and he died in a field of red poppies! A gorgeous spring field of flowers, red like his blood, mourning the useless loss of an innocent life. I have the same feeling now, the same sense of loss, of useless and helpless pain and death as many innocent lives, human and animal are lost. Wars can be avoided, hopefully, one day we will be wise enough to get along and not to have any more wars…. And we can spend the money on research to care for diseases and feed the helpless people and animals with an intelligent birth control in place. Harmony and serenity on our planet should be our priority!

That said, we are now facing very difficult times. We sent out an appeal and you, our friends, sustainers and donors responded with so much love and generosity we are blown away!!!! I was checking the emails on Monday night and my mouth dropped open! Your donations were raining in like a storm…My heart started flying full of your love and generosity…. I said to myself that we are not going to crash!!! Our people are here with us. The kitties are safe! So, we are here, feeding, cleaning, and loving them. The Refuge is closed to visitors, but our workers are here, every morning, and we pray that we all will be safe. We are taking a lot of precautions, spraying and disinfecting everything that comes in the Refuge…. The kitties are happy, in the sun, and the flowers are blooming. We all get through this! I will be waiting for you all to come visit so I can hug you in person! Be careful, take good care of you, stay serene, we may discover a lot of good things we forgot about in this trying time. Now you have the time to take a look at this: https://www.huffpost.com/…/facebook-page-ups-drivers-dogs_n…

I know you will love it!

We Need Your Support More than Ever!


As the nation shelters itself fear abounds. People are afraid of their families’ health; losing jobs and wondering when it
will end.

Just as immediately after the “9/11” attack in 2001, people have reduced spending. While many generous donors are giving to help support the matching campaign; overall revenue and giving is significantly reduced for the Goathouse.

This could not come at a worse time for us. Kitten season and the typical influx of kittens and other cats is nearly upon us! We have had to close to the public to prevent spread to our workers.

Our team of cat care givers are facing their own family health and financial issues, but still come to the Goathouse to perform their duties, seven days a week! Caring for the cats cannot be done from home! It requires a full team of people to feed, change litter, adjust bedding, and administer medications.

Unfortunately, the Goathouse has been operating without an emergency reserve. Without the continued generous contributions of friends and sustainers, funding is not enough to get through to the next several weeks of this health crisis.

We appreciate all the support you have provided to the Goathouse over the years, but we need to ask for additional support. Any additional contributions; small or large; one time or recurring; are much needed and will do a lot to help us through this difficult time.

We know that you value the work the Goathouse Refuge does in saving lives that otherwise probably would not get a second chance. So please share with your friends, family and other animal lovers in hopes that they will find it in their hearts to help in any way they can for the cats!

Together, we can all make it through this troubling time.

Jeff, Helena, Susan, Julie, Randy, Meredith, Siglinda and all the people and kitties of Goathouse
