The Balcatta resident said the money raised would go towards the ‘skyrocketing’ vet bills the organisation was faced with.

‘We are in the middle of our busiest kitten season to date, with over 300 cats in care and more waiting to come in,’ she said.

‘Without these crucial funds we will not be able to continue to take in abandoned and unwanted animals.

‘We also have over 100 dogs in care, and a few dozen rabbits.

‘We rely completely on the generosity of the public, and the success of events like this to be able to keep saving these animals’ lives.’

Ms Balatonyi said funds raised would go towards animals such as special needs minx kitten Manfred who is undergoing physiotherapy because he does not have full mobility in his back legs.

‘He was surrendered to a vet to be put down,’ she said.

‘He is just one of hundreds of cats currently in care, a few special cases like Manny, but most abandoned or surrendered litters with mums needing new homes, or foster places.

‘Without foster places we can’t continue taking in animals.’

The fundraiser event will involve the selling of whitegoods, tools, furniture, clothing and children’s’ toys, with baked goods on offer for a small donation.

There will be foster animals who need new homes as well as SAFE volunteers to offer assistance.

The fundraiser is at 6 Seaforth Road in Balcatta from 8am on Sunday, December 15.
