Photo Competition – October 2019

For the month of October, we are running an animal photo competition on our fundraising Facebook page, The Cat Purrse. All proceeds will go to the neutering of stray and feral cats in South Tipperary.

To take part, it’s easy. Buy an entry (or more) online here (€5 per entry or €12 for 3 entries) and email your photo to ccntipp@gmail.com. Your photo will be uploaded on the Cat Purrse’s facebook album where the public can vote for it until the 30th of October. The 5 photos with the most votes will be sent to an independent jury to choose a winner and two runner-ups. The winner will be announced on Facebook at the start of November. There are three prizes to choose from – the winner will have 1st choice, while the runner-ups will have 2nd and 3rd choice.

Submissions are accepted until the 27th of October. 

Note that the photo must be your own and must be animal-themed. All animals welcome!

If collection cannot be arranged locally, the cost of postage will be at your own charge.

Thanks for your support!

Online Auction at The Cat Purrse – September 2019

This month at The Cat Purrse, we are having an auction to raise funds for TNR in North Cork and South Tipperary, where we have been really busy for teh past couple of years.

The auction will start on September 16th and close on September 27th at 8pm sharp. Every day, we will be adding new items for you to bid on. To bid, simply comment under the photo. There are many jewellery pieces, as well as craft items and art, but also toiletry sets, bags, toys, etc, so check it out and share with your friends!

Note that all items will be posted and that postage will be at your own charge. All items must be paid promptly.

 

The Clonmel Carpark Cats

 

Over the past couple of months, these cats in a supermarket carpark have been brought to our attention by a lot of concerned people in Clonmel looking for help for them. We recently gained permission to proceed with a Trap-Neuter-Return project in the carpark and have made contact with some of the people feeding them. We’ve counted approximately 10 cats, some with injuries, but we expect some were hiding at time of assessment. To read the fully story and see the updates, click here.

We need help to raise funds to neuter & treat these cats. We appreciate any amount donated; big or small, it all helps!

You can donate on IDonate or by using Paypal. Thank you for your kindness and generosity!

Draw for hamper in Clonmel

We are having a raffle to win this lovely hamper in Southview Vets in Clonmel. Lines are €2 each and the draw will take place on the 26th of February. Please support by calling down and buying a line. All proceeds will go to neuter stray and feral cats in the town.

Unfortunately, without the support of the community for fundraising, we can only offer limited assistance and often have to turn down TNR projects if the carers cannot afford the discounted rate of neutering. Please, consider supporting this fundraiser, organising a fundraiser or donating to the South Tipp fund so that the great work started by our volunteer in Clonmel last year can continue.
