Weʼre raising £1,600 to help cover extra veterinary bills and general costs for rescue animals

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Rainbow Rescue Telford is a small animal rescue centre. It is family run and funded by donations and fundraising, we normally manage to just cover our costs doing this. However we need to raise extra funds. Firstly for Odina she is a 10 week old kitten who came into our rescue. She is missing an eye and needs an operation to clean our and close up her eye socket so she doesn't get an infection and to make her more comfortable. Her operation and aftercare will cost around £700. We also have recently taken in a mother cat and her 7 kittens who are now approx 5 weeks old. They had been handed in to a local vets who then contacted us. They are currently receiving treatment for mild cat flu symptoms, they are all having regular eye drops and mum has had a course of antibiotics. Their total care bill including kitten food, cat litter, vaccinations, worming and flea treatment, etc will cost around £500. We also have 2 expectant mother cats in our care and their vet bills and care costs will be around £400. We also have many other animals in our care so we always need funds!
Update- totals revised as odinas operation bill has been calculated fully by vets rather than just an estimate. And the litter of kittens have responded very well to treatment so won't need as much as first thought. We have also had one cat have her kittens. She gave birth to one at 11am Saturday then nothing! So she ended up at the vets Monday morning to check all was ok. She finally had the rest of her litter Tuesday 7am! We have also managed this week to get another cat spayed and vaccinated ready for rehoming and everyone had had flea and wormer treatment! So this week's vet bill is a bit scary!
Thanks for reading hope you can help us in some way :) xx
