Since Lil BUB’s BIG Fund for the ASPCA was created in February 2014, over $75,000 has been raised to help special needs cats across the country. We’ve shared a few of the success stories, and now the most amazing cat on the planet has set a new goal: to reach $100,000 for the fund by the end of 2014. We look forward to helping even more cats in need, thanks to you and BUB!
All funds collected will be distributed as grants to organizations to support cats that need special care or extra help getting adopted due to conditions such as:
• physical deformity
• birth defects
• developmental disability (i.e. cerebral hypoplasia)
• mobility impairment
• wounds suffered from a disaster, accident, or abuse (i.e. burns due to a fire, broken bones due to car accident or physical abuse, etc.)
• any permanent diseases/illness (FIV, Leukemia, diabetes, etc)
• old age
Eligible grant recipients may include, but are not limited to, the following projects that support cats: emergency and ongoing veterinary or medical care, physical and behavioral rehabilitation, hospice and sanctuary care, shelter enrichment, foster programs, adoption events and adoption make-ready costs, relocation programs to improve adoptability, safety net programs for owned cats to reduce pet relinquishment and to keep families together, and costs associated with emergencies, disasters, or cruelty responses.
