Editor's Note: Below is a post from the Crisfield Cat Rescue Facebook page and it clearly shows they need more help from the community. I know there are some people who don't like cats which should be even more of a reason to donate to the rescue group to find them a home. I have been amazed at the things that can happen down in Somerset when the community works together and if there was ever a cause that deserved it this would be it. This is a small group of people that put their own money out to take care of these beautiful animals which helps the community out and they deserve to be supported for such amazing efforts. Please read the post below and consider donating money or supplies to this group.
"I was just figuring up Crisfield Cat Rescue's finances and it's not looking good...we have $1800 in the bank and our next two vet visits (2 spays & 7 neuters) are going to take around $1100. That only leaves $700, and we also have to pay our accountant for getting our non-profit status, which is in process now. AND, that doesn't include s/n & shots for Molly, her three kittens, the remaining two HC Project spays or any HC Project kittens, or any emergencies that may pop up.
Now is the time when we can really use your help!!! Please consider donating to help us help the kitties!! It doesn't have to be a lot, $10 here and $20 there really does add up! To donate, please send check to Crisfield Cat Rescue, 26268 Peach Street, Crisfield, MD 21817, or PayPal firstname.lastname@example.org (please mark as "gift").
Also, as you know, I buy food/litter for the rescue cats out of my own pocket, and with all the new kittens and cats it is now costing me around $15.00 per DAY to care for them. That's $105 per week, and I only make around $300 per week. And everyone wonders why I can never afford to do anything fun! lol So if you can possibly donate any cat food (canned or dry), Kitten Chow, and/or Fresh Step litter, it will be very greatly appreciated!!! Food and litter donations can be dropped off at 26268 Peach Street or at Gordon's Confectionery. Thank you for your support!!! :-)"
To answer the question on the financial breakdown here it is
$60/spay or $45/neuter. Combo testing for FIV, FeLV, and heartworms is $40 per cat. FVRCP vaccination is $21 and Rabies is $22. That equals $143 per female that we take in and $128 per male. Feral cats are only spayed/neutered and given Rabies vac.
And the post was on the Facebook page it is Kelly Dize

If you were sitting in your car in a parking lot and saw a domestic incident occur nearby and I'm talking about seeing the woman get out of the vehicle and the man get out and grab her arm to get her back in the car, what would you do?

There comes a time when enough is enough and while I have been supportive of some things requested the latest stunt by the Wicomico County Education Association goes too far. I'm glad that they find we can afford to fund them the 38 Million they requested, but not when you look at the County Roads and other much higher priority items that may need funding assistance. This is what happens when greed gets in the way of actually fighting for children's education.
Rick Pollitt has done more than enough and taken some public beatings for supporting the new Bennett Middle, but that isn't enough for them? What next every kid in Wicomico County gets an IPAD 3 and if anyone speaks up against it we are against education?
This is what I hate to see, when organizations go too far in their request for funding they lose even some of the supporters who have stood by them for some battles. Plays like yesterday only give the people who oppose every request for funds the ammo they need to fight against it, so in the long run they are hurting themselves. The local economy is in no shape for this right now and I really think this is going to backfire on them with the public
