ICRA needs your help with donations both monetary and/or in other ways. We are always in need of cash donations: Funds are needed to defray the cost of vaccinations, spay and neuter surgeries, medical costs for sick or injured cats, cages for recovering animals, and for the purchase of humane traps for feral cats. Remember, we are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, so your donations support our animals and are tax deductible.
Your contribution is eligible for corporate gift matching programs. Please check with your employer to see if your company can help you to double your donation to ICRA.
Since our name has become more familiar to the community, requests for spay and neuter have grown beyond the capacity of our volunteers to fund. Spay/neuter is the key to reducing overcrowded community shelters where hundreds of cats are killed each year or the number of cats running wild on the streets being hit and killed by cars. Spay/neuter saves lives. Donations to ICRA to do more spay/neuter will save many feline lives.
