The most important mission for the YesWeKahn.org Website is to provide you with ways you can help other cat owners in need. Too many times a cat is put down because the owners can’t afford thousands of dollars in medical bills. On this page we will list places you can contribute to in order to help cat owners.
After the medical bills for Kahn the Cat and Coco Chanel are covered (monitor progress via sidebars on the right), we will contribute any additional royalties from book sales and donations to many of the causes below. Please note that we are not set up to handle individual requests. If you are a pet owner needing to raise money to help save your pet, then please launch a GoFundMe campaign and/or contact some of the places below. As a final note, it is very sad that many places that help pet owners have had to stop taking applications because of a major decrease in donations. This leaves thousands of requests for assistance unanswered. So any way you can help is great.
Causes We Support that You Can Contribute To:
Cause #1: GoFundMe Campaigns
GoFundMe Campaigns are the lifeblood of many pets whose owners can’t afford medical bills. It’s really easy to peruse campaigns and find some you want to contribute to. We will even be launching a GoFundMe Campaign for Kahn and Coco soon. The great thing about GoFundMe is that you don’t need to make big contributions to help. Any amount helps. Here’s what to do:
1) Go to GoFundMe.com. If you don’t have an account, you’ll need to sign up for one.
2) Search “Cats.”
3) Peruse the results and make contributions to the ones you want to support.
Doing this once a month will really help bring happiness to your life as you realize how many people and cats you are helping. If you are need of assistance, then sign up for a GoFundMe account and follow their guidelines to launch your campaign. At the end of this page, we have posted two videos from GoFundMe on how to best use their service.
Cause #2: Feline Veterinary Emergency Assistance
This used to be a big provider of vet care for people with cats that couldn’t afford it. But donations have been down and they are in need of help. You can view their Website here.
Cause #3: RedRover
Red Rover, Red Rover, Send Money Right Over. RedRover is a blessing for many pet owners because of the financial aid they provide owners during pet emergencies. At a time when many pet charities are closing due to lack of donations, Red Rover is still able to help. That makes them a great option for donations. You can find out more about the RedRover Relief program here.
Cause #4: Cuddle Clones
This one is a bit different. We recently learned about a site called Cuddle Clones that makes stuffed animals from pictures of your pet that you send to them. It’s a novel idea! So why is it listed here with our causes? The reason is because Cuddle Clones donates money from every sale to charities that help pet owners and sometimes to pet owners directly. So when you order a Cuddle Clone, you get a cool stuffed animal of your pet and you know a portion of your purchase is going to help other pet owners in need. Visit Cuddle Clones here.
