THE Cat Haven’s annual Monster Garage Sale will be a crucial fundraising effort for the pet adoption service, which hopes to raise more than $1000 before the forthcoming kitten season.
Event organiser Chandra Woodley said the shelter’s funds were at a critical low after it received 2000 more cats last year than previous years.
“We want people to come along to the sale but the message we also want to send is for people to sterilise their cats – it’s imperative, but people are still not getting the message.”
Ms Woodley said raising a significant amount of funds on the day would help with the overall functioning of the Cat Shelter.
“As time goes on throughout the summer, we get hundred and hundreds of kitten which costs Cat Haven a lot of money to keep them and get them adopted, so we try to raise funds wherever we can,” she said.
The Monster Garage Sale will be suitable for the whole family, with more than 300 items on offer at bargain prices, including toys, games, books, DVDs, home wares and children’s toys.
The event is part of the nationwide annual Garage Sale trail series, a multi-award winning community sustainability campaign promoting reuse and waste reduction.
All sale items have been donated to the Cat Haven.
