A Provider is an individual who pledges to financially support one or more “staples of Life” each month for the sanctuary dogs and/or cats.
These “staples of life” include dog and cat food and cat litter. On average, our food expense per month is around $3,100 and the monthly litter cost is about $650 (see below).
At CFC we choose to purchase as high a quality of food for our animals as we can. Rarely do animals arrive at the sanctuary in robust health; in fact, usually it is just the opposite. It is imperative that we provide them with nutritious meals to first restore their health, and then to maintain it. It is our experience that what we do not spend for healthy food, we will, at some point in time, spend in veterinary care.
Listed below are the items we use and the corresponding cost:
