9 days ago, we blogged about our plans for Foster Space 2.0 – to have a bigger, much more conducive space for fostering rescued cats. We asked for either a pro bono landlord or a monthly pledge so we could know whether we are able to make rent of $500 a month or not.
As of today, the total pledge amount is $490 per month in total. You guys rock!
Over the weekend, the human tenant currently renting the room we want to use for the foster space was given one month’s notice to end the tenancy. We can start moving into the room by 23 April, never mind the $10 shortfall.
There will be some basic fixtures and furniture needed but the room is already furnished with storage cupboards so that’s a big savings already. We are drawing up a budget for the new fixtures and fittings needed. The purchases will be funded by the Boarding Fund. Will update on the budget and furnishing plans once they have been completed and reviewed!
If you wish to make one-time gifts to the Boarding Fund during this period to fund the new fittings, make a deposit of your desired amount to POSB savings 188-52652-7 and email us to let us know. Any amount not spent on furnishings will be left aside for other ongoing boarding needs like food and litter.
We expect the room to be ready within 2 weeks of the move-in date.
Those of you who have pledged for Foster Space 2.0, you can set up your standing instruction by the first week of May.
Wanna help in other ways? We are looking for a committed human for the position of Foster Care Volunteer. Help us find him or her!
