The Cattery Raffle

Another great raffle here at @raffleready! The Cattery of Corpus Christi is raffling of a 2016 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium to help them raise funds to add an additional mobile spay/neuter clinic to reach even more people and pets!

The Cattery began in early 2007 as a dream discussed over dinner.  Several exhausting months later, the dream blossomed into reality.  We had an amazing first year, with over 100 adoptions and a lot of support from the community in the form of volunteers (over 100!), donations, print and media coverage, boutique sales, a full boarding area, and successful fundraisers.

However at the end of 2008, we realized that it was unrealistic in this economy to continue paying the rent we were being charged for our location.  Supporters wanted to buy us a building but unfortunately we did not find one in time for a seamless transition.  The kitties were kept safe in a building on a supporters land outside of the city limits and were taken to Petsmart Saturday – Wednesday for adoption, while looking for a new suitable home for our feline friends.  While it seemed like a bad start to the year, the number of adoptions doubled and we ended 2009 with 231 adoptions!  We found a new home for the kitties in April and by August the kitties were all moved in and settled into their new shelter.

Things continue to go well with donations up and the building of new quarantine and isolation buildings.  We are able to continue our work for the cats and kittens of Corpus Christi because of generous sponsors and supporters!

The Cattery offers an alternative to traditional animal shelters in providing a no-kill, cage-free haven for homeless, abused, or abandoned cats.  From there, we seek permanent, loving homes for these animals.  In addition, our organization promotes public awareness regarding the value of animals and their welfare, the dangers of pet overpopulation, and the benefit of quality human-animal companionship.

What are Raffles?

Raffles are a way of raising money by selling tickets for a chance to win a prize. These tickets are then drawn at random to choose the winner.

Raffle’s date back to the beginning of human civilization. Even before tickets could be printed and way before you could hold an electronic drawing, The Old Testament states that Moses used a lottery to award land West of the Jordan to his people. Since then ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans all ran some sort of raffles for themselves and their people.

The idea of using raffles to raise funds caught on strong after these pioneers first introduced raffles to their cultures. In today’s world, Raffle Ready has created an easy way to run raffles, while generating maximum profits.

Raffles usually require a lot of man power to process all of the donor/ticket data, however. For non-profit organizations, raffles are often the most effective fundraising method because everyone likes the chance to win a prize, while helping a good cause. However; many nonprofits struggle with a lack of time and resources needed to manage a raffle, that is why nonprofits across the country are turning to Raffle software programs to automate their raffle fundraiser. Next time your organization is considering running a raffle, calculate your complete raffle costs and call Raffle Ready to see how they can help.

Attention fundraisers: Take a month off this labor day!

Labor Day is a holiday to celebrate the economic contributions of workers across the country. You know what else should be celebrated for economic contributions? Raffles. Raffles are an underrated efficient way for any organization to raise money.

Running a raffle is an ideal way to advertise your organizations mission, raise significant funds, while promoting the business (Sponsors) that help support your cause. Nonprofit organizations that run raffles with RaffleReady.com celebrate Labor Day more then once a year. These nonprofits are relieved of the labor intensive follow up and management that is generally required when running a successful raffle.

 When reflecting on what Labor Day is, the phrase “Labor Intensive” is the first thing that comes to mind. Labor Intensive is the process that requires a large amount of labor to produce goods and services. Organizations and companies throughout the world should strive to be non labor intensive, like RaffleReady.com.
