A Message from the Director
Like many of you, Caring Fields Felines thought for sure that we would be able to have our annual Merry Meows event in 2021. Unfortunately, the difficult decision was made to put all our planning aside and cancel the event due to the increased number of people infected with COVID-19. The safety of our community is of utmost importance, and we cannot responsibly host the event with the ongoing threat of this virus. We look forward to the time when we can come together to celebrate our community and accomplishments in-person when it is safe to do so!
Success to date:
2021 brought new opportunities as well as ongoing challenges with the COVID-19 environment. Instead of our in-person events like the Kitten Shower, we turned to online donation drives and campaigns. Our nursery was full of “Moms to be” and their new litters. To date, we have placed 341 felines in forever homes and are on target to meet our 2021 goal. The sanctuary grew and was refreshed by added housing for our feline residents and facelifts to existing facilities. And we're launching some new community programs, like the high school art club project. All of this is possible because of the continued generosity of our supporters.
Sponsorships are the bulk of our Merry Meows revenue and our work wouldn't be possible without you and your support. Cancellation of this year’s event will result in approximately $100,000.00 in lost revenue. Continuing sponsorships, or new ones are needed. More than ever, we would love to see more corporate or company sponsorships in addition to our many loyal individual sponsors. This year, we are committed to providing personal and valuable brand recognition and visibility of your sponsorship throughout the coming year. Here is what you can expect through September 30, 2022:
Your logo or name featured on our website home page
Social media recognition of your sponsorship
Recognition during virtual programming
Your logo or name recognition on our annual newsletter/report
In years past, we have always held a silent auction during Merry Meows. Good news… We are working out the logistics for another online auction that we plan to have in the spring! We had such fun with the online auction last year and look forward to the next one. More details and dates will be forthcoming!
