Brisbane Valley Cat Rescue Inc is a registered charity and as such your donations and sponsorships are tax deductible. You can save on tax and save a life at the same time.
If you can spare even a small amount please make a donation towards the operating costs and vet care of the shelter by using either PayPal or your credit card. In order for the shelter to continue to operate BVCR must cover the costs of desexing, microchipping, vaccinations, worming, feed and general upkeep of the facilities. As a non kill shelter BVCR doesn't just give up on a cat if it is ill or badly injured due to abuse. In these instances the vet costs alone can be astronomical but we firmly believe that every animal deserves a chance at a full life with a loving family. These cats and other animals give so much of themselves and we humans have created the world in which they live and have made them dependant upon us, therefore it is our obligation to ensure that we do in fact care for them properly.
If you truly believe that we need NON KILL SHELTERS then please help BVCR to help the animals into a better future. So many of you scanning these pages already have wonderful companions living in your homes. Without NON KILL SHELTERS like this one what would become of your loving friend if you were unable to continue to care for them. Think about that for a while before you move on.
If you don't want to use the PayPal facility or your credit card, you can set up a direct credit into the shelter bank account by either contacting your bank with the relevant details or using pay anyone access on your internet banking. You can set up regular payments this way either weekly, fortnightly or monthly, whichever suits your budget the best.

There is no minimum amount required, so whatever your budget will allow. Even the cost of a daily cup of coffee is appreciated. You can do this either for general donations or sponsorship of a particular cat or kitten. Just ensure that you enter the details on the payment reference. Once you've decided to make either a one off donation or set up a recurring transfer please email [email protected] with your name and postal address and the amount of your donation so we can send you a receipt.
HELP COVER RUNNING COSTS OF THE SHELTER
Due to the large number of cats and kiittens always awaiting adoption including orphans, abuse cases, strays and older cats we are constantly in need of the following items:
Cat toys, dry or canned cat food, bedding, towels, food and water bowls, litter trays, cat litter, leads, collars, enclosures of all sizes, carry cases, flea powder, brushes and combs. Please contact me if you are able to supply any of the abovementioned items. These items can be delivered or dropped off at 821 Atkinson Dam Road, Atkinsons Dam, Qld 4311 or 16-22 Buccan Road, Buccan, Qld 4207.
You may wish to sponsor a particular cat or kitten while they wait for the perfect family to come along. This doesn't mean that you have to cover all the costs of the particular cat or kitten but just that you would like to contribute towards their care while they are here. Sponsorship fees can be whatever amount you an afford. If you would like to sponsor a particular cat or kitten or even a mother with kittens please use the donate button below. It will give you the ability to enter the name of the cat you wish to sponsor. Then send me an email at [email protected] so we can add you to the list of sponsors and send you email updates on your particular sponsored cat. You can also keep track of your sponsored cat or kitten in the blog page and forum pages.
What is a bequest? When you pass away, your Legal Will shall specify how you want your
property and assets to be dealt with. Without
a Legal Will, others will decide how your estate is to be finalised. A bequest is a property or a sum of
money dedicated to an organisation upon the donor's death.
· Proportion: The most adaptable form of a bequest is a proportion or percentage of your estate. By using this kind of bequest you need not worry about the effects of inflation or changes in the size of your estate.
· Specific Sum: A specific bequest of money is a simple one but it can be reduced in value over the years by inflation and it remains fixed despite any increase or change in the value of your estate.
· Property: A specific bequest of property is one that nominates property, works of art, stocks and shares or insurance policies.
· Residue: When you have made provision for your family you may wish to leave the residue
to Brisbane Valley Cat Rescue Inc.
We highly recommend donors liaise with their legal representative for advice. If you need a solicitor, please contact the Qld Law Society. They will recommend someone in your area.
