We mean that literally. Because the A/C unit that serves the middle portion of Perry’s Place picked the worst possible time to go on the fritz. It suddenly ground to a halt during this month’s record-breaking heat wave, sending temperatures in our Isolation and Maternity Rooms soaring.
Overheated cats are not happy or healthy cats. Emergency measures went into place and 71 cats and kittens moved temporarily into the cooler end of the building, displacing anything and anyone not feline. Rush order brought the replacement A/C unit to Perry’s Place in record time and now everything is back to normal. Except our budget.
So we’re reaching out to friends like you for help. This unexpected $10,000 charge is tough to absorb, especially right in the middle of kitten season with so many mouths to feed.
As extra incentive, we’re holding a drawing for three cool thank-you prizes, courtesy of the good folks at the Jackson Galaxy Foundation. For each $25 you donate, you’ll be entered in a drawing for one of three gift baskets filled with products from the Jackson Galaxy Collection by Petmate. $25 = 1 chance. $100 = 4 chances. $250 = 10 chances. Isn’t multiplication cool?
We’ll hold the drawing the evening of July 10. All online donations of $25 between now and then are eligible, and now’s a great time to give. Just click here to donate!
Thank you from everyone at Perry’s Place…cool cats and toasty humans alike!
