High... Six?

I know, I know, $6? Not $5? When I first began my Patreon there was an ongoing joke about how just $6 per year from each of my (then) followers would fully support every aspect of my rescue and fostering costs. Thus, the $6 tier was born.

About

My name is Marie Gutshall, and by becoming a patron you will be helping me on my journey to become a nonprofit organization whose goals are to rescue animals that have otherwise been failed by humans, support TNR (trap, neuter, release) in the community, and advocate for humane treatment of all animals and harsher animal cruelty laws.

I want to devote an increasing amount of my time to animal rescue and advocacy which will ultimately allow me to take on more animals in need of foster (this includes general care of the animals, attending veterinary appointments – sick visits, vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery –, providing around the clock care for neonatal and special needs kittens, vetting interested adopters – checking references (personal, veterinary, landlord), home visits, in-person meet and greets –, and attending to any other needs of the animals), as well as managing our fosters and volunteers whose contributions save even more of these precious lives.

I also support local rescue groups and participate in TNR within the community. TNR stands for trap, neuter, release, and is the humane trapping of community cats. The cats are transported to a clinic where they are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed, flea treated, assessed for medical issues, and then released where they were originally trapped after recovery. TNR is essential in reducing the number of kittens being born each year and also reduces behavioral issues among the colony like aggression and spraying.

I have always been passionate about animal welfare, but over the past two years that I have been exclusively fostering cats and kittens, that passion was ignited and I am committed to doing more for these animals.

Your contribution allows my primary focus to be animal rescue and advocacy. Your contribution means I can say yes to helping more cats and kittens, including those who have special needs like Charlie, Charlotte,  Scoot, Beans, and Wyatt, and require more intensive care. Your contribution supports TNR which will ultimately reduce the number of kittens being born and save countless lives. Your contribution will help me fight for harsher animal cruelty laws and animal welfare in general.

If a monthly donation isn't your thing, please head over to linktr.ee/charliesarmy to make a one time donation or view my Amazon fostering wishlists.
